How To Make Strawberry Shortcake Cookies (Step-by-Step Process Instructions)

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Line a cookie sheet(s) with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the baking mix and granulated sugar until combined.
  3. Add in the half and half and melted butter and stir until a dough forms. Do not over mix this. Just stir until it’s combined and forms a dough.
  4. Gently stir in the chopped strawberries and white chocolate chips. Remember that ripe strawberries may bleed into pale batter, so mix very gently just until they’re incorporated throughout.
  5. Use a medium cookie scoop, 1.5 tablespoons of cookie dough, to scoop the cookie batter and place 12 per cookie sheet. Sprinkle the tops of the cookies with coarse sugar (totally optional).
  6. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the tops are lightly golden brown.
  7. When done, remove the cookies from the oven and allow them to cool for at least 5 minutes on the warm cookie sheet before moving them to a cooling rack to cool to room temperate before glazing.
  8. Using a fork, stir together the powdered sugar and half and half until a glaze forms. Use more or less milk depending on your desired consistency. Use the fork to drizzle the glaze over top each cookie. Let the cookie set for a few minutes for the glaze to firm up.

How Should I Store Strawberry Shortcake Cookies?

Store these cookies in an airtight container at room temperate for 3-4 days.

What Do Strawberry Shortcake Cookies Taste Like?

These strawberry shortcake cookies have a sweet, buttery flavor with a burst of fresh strawberry chunks in every bite. The biscuit mix gives the cookies a slightly crunchy texture on the outside while the inside remains soft and moist. The all-purpose baking mix is used to give these cookies that same biscuit-like texture and look of classic strawberry shortcake.

Can I Use Frozen Strawberries Instead of Fresh Strawberries?

While fresh strawberries are recommended for this recipe, you can use frozen strawberries if absolutely necessary. Make sure to thaw and drain them well before chopping into small pieces and adding them into the cookie batter. The reason I don’t recommend using frozen strawberries is that they may add extra moisture to the cookie batter so you might have to add 1-3 tablespoons of extra baking mix/half and half to get the right consistency.

Helpful Tips

  • When adding in the strawberries be careful to not over-mix or otherwise the strawberries will bleed red into the pale cookie batter. Just mix until incorporate throughout the dough.
  • Don’t overbake these cookies. Watch them carefully and once the edges are set and the tops of the cookies are pale golden brown, they should be cooked and you can remove them from the oven. Remember, that as the cookies cool on the warm cookie sheet they will cook slightly more and firm and set up.
