I am now starting to get into strawberry mode. And since the season has just started here in Italy, I knew I had to make a batch of Strawberry Cookies again.

And to tell the truth I have been on a roll these days with “recipes the Italian won’t share”  including Strawberry Cream Cheese Strudel , Chocolate Panna Cotta with a tasty Strawberry Topping and this popular Strawberry Mousse, of course these cookies are still on the list.

I really hope you are not sick of strawberries yet, because I still have a couple of recipe waiting in the wings!

But these cookies I just had to post. 1. They are really good and make a great snack. 2. All you need is one bowl, a whisk and a spatula.

How to Make Strawberry Cookies

  • In a large bowl whisk together the egg, juice, oil, vanilla and sugar, until well combined.
  • Add flour and baking powder and mix until combined.
  • Gently fold in the chopped strawberries just until combined.
  • Either form into balls or drop by spoonfuls (approximately the size of a golf ball.
  • Place on cookie sheets, sprinkle with a little sugar and bake for approximately 15 minutes.
  • Let cool completely.

  • Sugar
  • Vegetable Oil
  • All Purpose Flour
  • Lemon Juice
  • Egg
  • Baking Powder
  • Vanilla
  • and of course Fresh Strawberries

How to Store Strawberry Cookies

The cookies should be stored in an airtight container. They can be left out at room temperature (if it isn’t too warm) over night. Longer than that they should be stored in the refrigerator. They will keep for up to a week.

Or they can be frozen in an airtight container or freezer bag. Cookies will last up to 3 months in the freezer.

By the time strawberries are finished here in Italy I will be making my way to Canada to be re introduced to them for the start of the summer. So I might just have to think of a few more recipes.

Do you plant strawberries? I can remember every year I would plant my own Strawberries in Pots and my kids could not wait for the first strawberry to appear.

How to store the strawberry cookies

Store the completely cooled cookies in an airtight container or bag, they will keep for up to 3 days at room temperature or up to a week in the fridge.

How to freeze the cookies

Freeze the completely cooled cookies on a cookie sheet for about 1-2 hours until firm then place in a freezer safe container or bag. They will keep for up to 3 months in the freezer. Thaw the cookies at room temperature.

There is nothing like home grown strawberries especially in Strawberry Cookies. Enjoy!

And while you are at it why not plant a few tomatoes in pots too!

    1. Mine got too soft, soggy after they cooled. The batter seemed loose, maybe more flour and additional baking time? I put them in the oven for an additional 15 minutes and they were better. Everyone loved them once they were baked the additional time.

    2. Mine didn’t turn out like your photos (more cakey) but they are still delicious and it was a great recipe for my toddler. We had fun making them.

      Wow! These were unique and delicious! I used bottled lime juice instead of lemon, and I really liked the flavor it gave. Just as advertised, these were easy! Use frozen strawberries like I did and it makes the recipe even more economical so a great choice if you are feeding a crowd.

    4. Ciao Rosemary and Daughters,
      Spero che questa vi trova bene.
      Ho fatta questa ricetta con le tue figlie Rosemary.
      Sono spiritosi e Simpaticissimi! Li hai insegnati bene. 🙂
      I biscotti son venuti meravigliosi.
      Li ho portati alcuni con me quando siamo andati a Londra per vedere la famiglia di mio marito.
      Ne ho dato una a una persona al aeroporto. Squisiti!
      Ho tanti blueberries.
      Vorrei provare con loro.
      Buona giornata.
      Mi e’ piaciuta questa ricetta anche perché i latticini non li posso avere e anche se c’ è burro senza lattosio io preferisco l’ olio.
      Un abbraccio.
      Graziella

      1. Ciao Grazia, Grazie mille e sono contenta che ti siano piaciuti i biscotti! e anche alla tua famiglia e alla persona all’aeroporto! Sono sicura che anche con i blueberries saranno buonissimi! Anche a me piace cucinare con l’olio, soprattutto i biscotti. Buona giornata e godetevi i biscotti! 🙂

      These cookies are wonderful. I have been looking for a fresh strawberry cookie for a long time. I made one batch and they were gone in no time. Of course I made more as strawberries are in season! The next batch will be freezer bound , maybe

    7. 4 stars
      Theese were soo good! I used frozen strawberries, but when I went to roll them they wouldn’t quite stick, but I got them to stay. Theese are super easy to make and are a very good snack for when I get home from school. Also quick to bake for parties

    8. 5 stars
      Delicious and easy to make. I made larger sized and cooked for 24 minutes to a perfect soft, golden brown

    9. These cookies are so good! They are addictive! the only problem is the following day the cookies get soggy . Why ? Am I doing something wrong? I leave it until they are completely dried and I put in in an airtight container, anyway they are wet the next day.
