Easy Strawberry Cookies
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.
Easy Strawberry Cookie Ingredients

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!
