Chewy Strawberry Sugar Cookies

Junia Sonier


We were given a lot of strawberries so I had to figure out what to do with them so they wouldn't go bad. This is one of the things I came up with and the family loved them. I hope you enjoy them as much as my kids did. I prefer them with fresh strawberries but you can also make them with strawberry extract.
