Sweet, simple, and delicious, Double Strawberry Sugar Cookies. Soft and chewy strawberry cookies with both strawberry jam and dried strawberries for double the strawberry flavor. Each light pink berry-filled cookie is lightly iced with a cream cheese strawberry icing. These cookies do not disappoint. Each sweet bite is perfectly chewy, layered with fresh berries, and topped with a deliciously creamy icing – so good!

It’s strawberry cookie day here at HBH today!! It’s a good ole’ happy kind of day! I know that’s a little cheesy, but just looking at these light pink cookies makes me a little happier. They’re so fun!

I’ve been looking forward to writing and sharing these cookies since I made them last week. I love them, they’re easy, cute, soft, chewy, and oh-so-yummy. Plus, they’re fun for springtime and Easter too!

My energy is obviously up today and I blame these cookies. It’s not all the time that recipes turn out naturally cute without any added effort! So we just love that!

Just like last year, and the year before, March brings me some much-needed inspiration recipe-wise. It’s the start of spring. We have St. Patrick’s Day just around the corner, and then Easter and Mother’s Day too.

All are fun events that center around food! With spring coming up, strawberry is at the top of my mind. I LOVED my strawberry cupcakes from last year so much, I wondered how I could turn the flavors into a cookie.

My very first attempt at these worked beautifully. That almost never happens ya’ll. Again, we ALL really love these cookies, and I’m pretty sure you’ll love them too. Plus hopefully, you’ll also have fun making them!

Details, details

I knew I wanted these to be easy, but also to have incredible strawberry flavor – and REAL strawberry flavor. So many strawberry desserts have everything but real strawberries.

Like my cupcakes, I used strawberry jam and freeze-dried strawberries in these cookies. The first step is to blend the dried strawberries into a fine powder. You can do this in a food processor or blender. You’ll use the strawberry powder in both the cookies and the icing.

The rest is so simple. If you’ve made a basic cookie, you’ve got these covered.

Beat the butter with sugar, then drop in an egg and some vanilla extract. Next, mix in the flour, baking soda, some of that strawberry powder, and a little salt too. Next, add in high-quality strawberry jam. I like to use a thick jam, which I would recommend you use as well. The one I used was sent to me (sorry, I forget the name!). I love that it has no added sugars, just strawberry puree (I’ll try to figure out the name).

Mix, mix, mix and you have strawberry sugar cookie dough. Nothing to it.

Bake them into drop cookies, which means you simply scoop, drop, and bake.

For the icing, mix cream cheese with sweet sugar, more of that strawberry powder, and vanilla.

You don’t have to make the icing, the cookies are wonderful on their own. But the icing makes these cookies REALLY good. I definitely recommend it.

Lightly dip the cookies into the icing and now you’re totally done. Well, I also recommend decorating with a sprinkle of strawberry powder.

So freaking cute and fun! Perfect cookies to bake for both spring and summer, and especially for upcoming Easter and Mother’s Day. They’re pretty hard not to love!

Instructions

  • 1. In a blender or food processor, process the freeze-dried strawberries into a fine powder.
    2. Preheat the oven to 350° F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
    3. In a large bowl, beat together the butter, granulated sugar, and vanilla until combined. Beat in the egg. Add the flour, baking soda, 1/4 cup strawberry powder (save the remainder for the frosting), and salt. Beat in the strawberry jam.
    4. Roll the dough into rounded tablespoon size balls and place 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheet. Bake 8 minutes. Remove from the oven, rotate, and tap the baking sheet on the counter 1 time to flatten. Bake another 2-3 minutes or until the cookies are just beginning to set on the edges. Remove from the oven and let the cookies cool on the baking sheet. They will continue to cook slightly as they sit on the baking sheet.
    5. To make the icing, mix all ingredients in a bowl with 3-4 tablespoons strawberry powder. Add additional milk to thin, as needed.
    6. If desired, dip each cookie in the icing. Let set or enjoy! These are wonderful – iced or not! Store in an airtight container for up to 5 days.

    Brought these cookies to Easter and they were a hit!! Followed the recipe to a T but looked at comments, went ahead added 1/4 cup of flour AND chilled them. Had issues figuring out the strawberry measurements though. You truly only need a 2 oz bag of the strawberries. I bought 3 1 oz bags and had more than enough.

    1. Hey Trinity,
      Happy Monday!! Thanks a lot for trying this recipe and your comment, I love that it was enjoyed! xT

  2. Can I bake the cookies ahead of time and do the icing at another time after they’ve been completely cooled? Will that change anything?

    1. Hi Samantha,
      Of course, that should work nicely for you! I hope you love this recipe, please let me know if you give it a try! xT

    I was so excited for this recipe but I must have done something wrong because my cookies look nothing like the ones in the recipe! Mine are super flat and the icing is not drying- its not as much strawberry flavor as i was hoping for. Oh well- might try again or leave the baking to my husband. 😜

    1. Hi there,
      So sorry to hear you had some issues with the cookies! Next time, I would try chilling the dough so they aren’t so flat. How long has the icing been sitting for? Does it need more powdered sugar or strawberry powder? xx

    These are sooo delicious! They did however come out very soft so it was hard to apply the icing as they fell apart. Maybe more flour next time?

    1. Hi Jaime,
      Thanks so much for trying this recipe and your feedback! Next time, I would try chilling your dough and adding 1/4 cup of flour. I hope this helps! xT

    I have made the cookies, I haven’t made the icing just yet, that’ll be later on today. But they were absolutely great!

    I’m in Canada and when I was looking there wasn’t very many options for freeze dried strawberries. I did find some and bought three bags, as each bag was only 1 cup. When I tried putting them in my food processor, they didn’t turn into powder but just became gummy. I’m wondering if maybe strawberries slices were used instead. To make it easier, I then bought strawberry powder on amazon, the quantity and size of the package was pretty expensive. I’m going to the states in a couple of weeks, I’m going to see if I can stock up on this ingredient to try in your other recipes as it looks much more affordable at target.

    As for the cookies, they came out absolutely delicious. I am super happy with them!

    I was trying to figure out the measurements for just using the powder, but then I realized had I read your recipe first it would have said in tablespoon and cups how much powder I needed. Rather than trying to figure out how much 3 cups freeze dried strawberries were in powder form.

    I really, really enjoyed making these, I can’t wait to give them to my girlfriends tomorrow for my little event I’m hosting. I am making another HBH recipe that also asked for strawberry powder. Although, unless I can find where to get the powder cheaper (I paid $30 CDN for 55g and another brand for 113g for $30 CDN) I might not make these again for a while.

    1. Hi Angela,
      Thanks so much for making this recipe and sharing your feedback, so glad to hear that they were enjoyed!! Ohh wow, so sorry to hear that the freeze dried strawberries are so expensive in Canada, I had no idea!! Have a great Sunday! xT

        I realized when I tried to make my own powder I used, ‘dried strawberries’ instead of freeze-dried strawberries. To buy the powder from amazon was expensive, so now that I know my mistake in buying ‘dried’ strawberries, maybe I can try again to make the powder myself! Also these cookies were a huge hit at my get together, 10/10!!

    1. Thanks so much Sher!! So glad to hear you enjoyed the flavors here. I would add 1/4 cup of flour next time so they aren’t so wet. I hope this helps! xT
