Obsessed with these super soft and chewy strawberry sugar cookies!
I'm sure the last thing you think of when you think of cookies is ones that have fruit in them. I love experimenting with new cookie dough ideas. Because the ratio of ingredients is so simple, its so easy to incorporate new flavors into them.
Want to know my favorite fruit? Strawberries. Always strawberries.
Even as a kid it was about the only fruit I ever enjoyed. Although back then I would add about a cup of sugar to them before enjoying (why).
Being that strawberries are only really delicious a few months of the year, I've had to find other ways of enjoying them. One of my newest favorites is dehydrated strawberries.
So no, these strawberry cookies are not made from cake mix. They are made with dehydrated berries that we re-hydrate and they give our cookie dough the most amazing strawberry flavor!!!
