These Strawberry and Cream Cookies have such a strong strawberry flavor with a sweet hint from white chocolate. Chewy, soft, delicious and easy to make!

Strawberry and Cream Cookies

These cookies are SO good and so tasty. We can’t go and put real fresh strawberries and cookies because then they’ll be all soggy and gross. That’s where freeze-dried strawberries come into play. They are delicious and pack a huge strawberry flavor punch. And the “cream” comes from the white chocolate.

I used to give white chocolate some major side-eye but now I’m warming up to it, trying to like it. I think context is everything and in these cookies, the white chocolate is good. In other things…meh. We’ll see.

Ingredients for Strawberry and Cream Cookies

  1. All-purpose flour. Pretty standard flour that will yield a chewy, sturdy cookie
  2. Baking powder and baking soda. These cookies have both baking powder and baking soda. Baking powder makes gives them a nice lift and baking soda gives them color and spreads.
  3. Kosher salt. Of course, you need salt to balance the sweet.
  4. Butter. These cookies use melted butter which makes them easy to whip up at a moments notice.
  5. Brown sugar. Gives these cookies a nice chewy quality.
  6. Granulated sugar. The granulated sugar gives these cookies moistness, allows them to spread and contributes to their chewy texture.
  7. Eggs. These give these cookies a bit of height and binds all of the ingredients together.
  8. Freeze Dried Strawberries. I LOVE baking with freeze dried strawberries. They have a super potent strawberry flavor and are so easy to incorporate in all sorts of baked goods.
  9. White Chocolate Chips. This type of chocolate is sweet, mellow and compliments the strawberries and cookies in a super lovely way.

    Just made these cookies today – had so many ind. packages of freeze dried strawberries (kiddo will no longer eat). OMG these are the BEST COOKIES EVER! I’m not a big chocolate fan (I know, I know) so these hit the sweet spot for me. I doubled the strawberries to 1 cup like others recommended and BOOM, best thing ever! Love your recipes Adrianna!

  2. Hi! I had a question about the melted butter. Do you wait until the butter cools before adding the sugar or do you add the sugar to the hot melted butter?


  3. 5 stars
    I made the dough (doubled the recipe) the night before and noticed the next day dough was a little crumbly. What could I have done wrong? The cookies taste amazing its just the dough.

  4. 3 stars
    As others stated, I had to double the strawberries (1 C) to get a really good strawberry flavor. Other than that, a superb recipe.

  5. 5 stars
    Unbelievably good. So easy and quick. I upped the amount of strawberry and dropped the white chocolate a bit just based on preference for slightly less sweet cookies. Texture was astounding at an 8 minute bake. I will absolutely be making again.

    Just made these tonight and they are delicious! The strawberries I had were unsweetened and kind of lack powerful flavor. I’ll for sure make these again and try to find regular strawberries next. Thank you for the great recipe!
