Strawberry and Cream Cookies

Cookies, Desserts, Spring

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.

Soft sugar cookies filled with white chocolate chips and freeze-dried strawberries.The taste of a spring regardless when the season arrives. 


  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, (we're going to melt it so any temperature is fine)
  • 1 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup freeze-dried strawberries, crushed or finely chopped
  • 8 ounces white chocolate chips


  • In a large bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, soda and salt.
  • In medium saucepan, set over low heat, melt the butter. Remove from the heat and whisk in the sugar. Next add the eggs and vanilla. Set aside for 5 minutes to cool. Pour into the dry ingredients and mix until combined. Lastly, fold in the freeze-dried strawberries and white chocolate chips. Cover with plastic wrap or a towel and transfer to the fridge to chill for 1 hour.
  • Preheat oven to 350F. Scoop out 1 1/2-inch balls of dough and roll them between your palms; place them onto a parchment-lined baking sheet spacing them 3 inches apart. Bake for 8 to 10 min, until lightly golden brown. Repeat with the remaining cookie dough. These are best eaten warm with milk.

    Is the measurement for the freeze-dried strawberries before or after you crush them for the 1/2 cup?

    • Reply Adrianna Adarme July 27, 2020 at 2:45 pm

      it’s a 1/2 cup BEFORE you crush them. just so it’s easier. add it to a measuring cup, and then crush them up. 🙂

    I made these but substituted King Arthur Gluten Free Measure for Measure in place of regular flour – it was a little trial and error as they didn’t spread the way the glutenous versions appear to. I pushed them fairly flat with a wooden spoon before baking and they came out fluffy and delightful!

    The only change I would make next time is more strawberries 🙂

    Everytime I make these they turn out SO delicious (sometimes I use dried raspberries too), however, no matter what I do they always end up very puffy and cakey. Should I be flattening them down before baking?

    • Reply Adrianna Adarme August 13, 2019 at 11:10 am

      Hmm…that’s so strange. Next time, I would try baking them without chilling them and see how they turn out. Maybe just test it out with 1 or 2? The dough might be too cold…that’s the only thing I can think of.

    These sound absolutely delicious! I’ve never made a cookie recipe with melted butter before. I’m excited to try this!

  • Reply Kathryn July 16, 2018 at 4:22 am

    I did not the first time. Tried again with parchment and they were perfect! Thanks!

  • Reply Kathryn July 10, 2018 at 3:23 am

    Delicious and everyone who has tried them loves them, but I had some burnt patches at the bottom. Is it the strawberries that I didn’t crush as well as I should have?

    • Reply Adrianna Adarme July 11, 2018 at 11:31 am

      Hmm…it could’ve been the strawberries. Did you use parchment?

    That sounds like an amazing honeymoon! It’s almost crazy when you come back because there’s so much planning for a wedding, etc. that it feels weird to come back to not a huge to-do list — at least it did for me. Good call on the freeze dried strawberries — these look amazing!

  • Reply Vanessa June 11, 2018 at 4:30 pm

    Hey! These look amazing! Are you able to supply weighted measurements as well? Thanks!
