  • 12 oz. strawberries, hulled and cut into ¼-inch pieces
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • ½ cup, plus 1 Tsp granulated sugar
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 6 Tbsp unsalted butter, chilled and cut into small pieces
  • cup heavy cream
  • Coarse sugar, for sprinkling


  • Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees.
  • In a medium bowl, combine strawberries, lemon juice, and 2 Tbsp of sugar.
  • In a separate larger bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, and remaining 7 Tbsp sugar. Add butter to flour mixture and using your fingers or a pastry cutter, combine until a crumb-like mixture is formed. 
  • Add heavy cream and stir until mixture is dough-like. Stir in strawberry mixture.
  • Place tablespoon-size scoops of dough onto a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet. Sprinkle cookies with coarse sugar.
  • Bake cookies for 16-18 minutes, until just turning golden around edges. Remove from oven and let cool for a few minutes before moving to wire racks to cool completely.


  • Recipe adapted from Martha Stewart
  • Note that cookie dough consistency will likely depend on how juicy your strawberries are. Mine were super juicy. If yours are pretty dry, you may want to add in a bit more cream. 
  • Cookies are best enjoyed day of baking. If keeping longer, store in airtight container, but note that they may get a bit soggy as time goes on.
