How to Make Strawberry Shortcake Cookies


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

    Combine strawberries, lemon juice, and 1 tablespoon granulated sugar.

    Whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, and remaining granulated sugar in a large bowl.

    Cut in the butter with a pastry cutter, or rub in with your fingers, until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

    Stir in cream until dough starts to come together, then stir in strawberry mixture.

    Using a 1 1/2-inch ice cream scoop or a tablespoon, drop dough onto baking sheets lined with parchment, spacing evenly apart.

    Sprinkle with sanding sugar, and bake until golden brown, 24 to 25 minutes.

    Transfer to a wire rack, and let cool.

    Cookies are best served immediately, but can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 day.
