Cook Time

  • Prep time: 30 min
  • Cook time: 10 min
  • Ready in: 40 min
  • Yields: 1 dozen

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter (1 stick), softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 2 tsp. finely shredded lemon peel
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup chopped strawberries, divided
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tsp. lemon juice

Make it

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F (177 C)
  2. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper; set aside.
  3. In a mixing bowl, beat butter on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Beat in granulated sugar until fluffy, 2 minutes. Mix in egg yolk, lemon peel and vanilla. Beat in flour and 1/4 cup berries. With your hands, work the crumbly mixture until it forms into a smooth dough.
  4. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough to 1/4-inch thickness. Use a 3-inch scalloped cutter to cut rings. Cut center with a 3/4-t to 1-inch round cutter. Reroll and cut scraps.
  5. Place rings on cookie sheets. Bake for 10 minutes or until edges are light brown.
  6. Remove; let cool on wire racks.
  7. Puree and sieve remaining berries. Stir together berry puree, powdered sugar, and lemon juice. Drizzle over cooled cookies. Let stand until icing sets.

You can use vanilla frosting instead of berry puree in your strawberry cookies. To learn how to make it, check How To Make Vanilla Frosting hub.
