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!

    1. Hi Kimberly,
      Thanks so much for giving these cookies a try! Next time, try adding 1/4 cup of flour and letting the dough chill for 1 hour. I hope this helps! xx

    Super tasty cookies! I got about 40 4inch cookies from the batch. I should’ve chilled my dough or maybe added more flour. Mine got a little flat. The icing is still pretty wet, so I’m hoping that dried and hardens overnight. Overall, good recipe and i know what i need to do different next time

    1. Hey Courtney,
      Wonderful!! Thanks so much for making this recipe and sharing your feedback, so glad to hear that it was a hit! Yes, I would try chilling the dough next time:) xx

    1. Hey Katy,
      Sure, I don’t see why not! Let me know if you give this recipe a try, I hope you love it! xx

  2. Hi!! Question. We are not a cream cheese frosying family. Wondering about leaving out and/or adding melted white chocolate. What do you think? Can’t wait to make these – going to be on the Easter menu

    1. Hey Brooks,
      I would just use some butter in place of the cream cheese. Let me know if you have any other questions, I hope you love this recipe! xx

    I made these tonight and they are fabulous!! I actually used raspberry jam (what I had on hand) and they still turned out so good and so flavorful. I’ll be making these again for Easter brunch 🙂

    Hi Teighan!

    As usual with your recipes I found this cookie recipe to be easy and delicious! I made these with my daughter who loves everything pink! I am sorry about some of the comments you received- as I had no issues. My turned out almost 🙂 as beautiful as yours! At high altitude I did add an extra 1/4 cup of flour, and as with most cookies -chilled the dough for an hour minimum.

    1. Hey Shelby,
      Happy Monday!!⛅️ Thanks a bunch for giving this recipe a try, I love to hear that it turned out well for you:)

  6. I made these this morning, followed the recipe exactly, and they turned out great! Amazing strawberry flavor. Spring in cookie form! My daughters are currently gobbling them up (they opted not to wait for the frosting to set!). I will definitely be making these again for Easter!

    1. Hey Janet,
      Happy Monday!!⛅️ Thanks a bunch for giving this recipe a try, I love to hear that it turned out well for you:)

    My daughter-in-law made these cookies today, they are delicious! They had to have the recipe. Can’t wait to get home and make my own.

    1. Hey Amanda,
      Happy Sunday!😃 Thanks so much to your daughter in law for trying this recipe and sharing your review, so glad to hear it was enjoyed:) xT

    2. I like the flavor of these but mine didn’t look anything like yours. Didn’t crack and are very soft. Do they remain really soft? Thx!

      1. Hey Trinity,
        Thanks so much for trying this recipe out! Next time, I would chill the dough for an hour before baking:) I hope this helps! xx

    Not sure 709 grams of freeze dried strawberries is the correct weight. I like to weigh my ingredients but not for this recipe. Is there a correction?

    1. Hi Mary,
      I didn’t measure the freeze dried strawberries by weight, so you are going to have to use the 3 cups measurement. Sorry! xx

    1. Hi Joanie,
      So sorry, that’s not going to work here. Please let me know if I can help in any other way! xx

  9. I’m appalled at some of the comments here. Who knew home bakers/chefs could be so rude?! I am looking forward to making these cookies. No HBH recipe has failed me yet- all have turned out absolutely splendid. Such care and love goes into making these easy recipes. Thanks, Tieghan, for sharing your creative, delicious recipes.

    Only thing is where I am freeze dried strawberries are SO expensive. I’m looking at $60 for a small bag. If you have any recommendations for Canadians, I’d be very grateful.

    1. Thanks so much for your kind message Rachel!! Wow, that’s crazy! Just know, you don’t need a whole lot. Are you able to order on Amazon? Let me know how I can help! xx

      1. Can’t wait to make these today ! Also for those looking for freeze dried strawberries , get to your local Trader Joe’s , they are selling 33g bags for 3-4$. Otherwise yes they are. A bit pricey elsewhere

      2. I was able to find them at my local grocery store. They were about $4 for 12 oz. I should’ve read the recipe through before I bought ingredients. I thought I needed 3 cups of powder, but really there was plenty using 36 oz to blend into powder. You only need ¼ c powder plus 3 tbsp for the icing.

    These are delightful! I love all the strawberryness. I used strawberry powder from Amazon, 4 oz more than enough, prob will be able to use same bag for next batch.Will definitely be trying again soon.

    1. Hey Carol,
      Happy Friday!! ☘️🌈 So glad to hear that this recipe turned out well for you, thanks so much for trying it out! xT
