  • Cookie Scoop


  • 3/4 cup freeze dried strawberries
  • 1 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 1 egg large
  • 1 yolk whites discarded
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 cup white chocolate or chocolate chips, plus more for garnish


  • Preheat the oven to 350° F and line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • Pulverize the freeze dried strawberries in a small blender or food processor. Measure out the 1 1/2 cups sugar into a small bowl and mix them in.
  • In a large bowl or using the bowl of a hand or stand mixer with the paddle attachment, combine the 1 cup softened butter with the strawberry and sugar mixture. Mix with a spatula or on low speed until a paste forms, about 1 minute. Add the egg, the egg yolk, and the 1 tsp vanilla and mix again.
  • Combine the 2 1/4 cup flour, 1/2 tsp baking powder, 1/4 tsp baking soda, and 1/4 tsp kosher salt in another bowl (medium size) or on a large piece of parchment paper. Add it to the batter and mix on medium speed or by hand until the dough comes together.
  • Add the white chocolate chips or chopped chocolate saving a handful for topping, and add it to the batter. Scoop out the cookie dough and place them 2" apart from each other on the cookie sheets. Press a couple more pieces of chocolate onto each ball. Freeze for 20 mins.
  • Bake the cookies for 17 minutes until the edges are golden brown. Cool on a rimmed cookie sheet.


You don't have to chill these cookies if you are in a rush, but know that they will spread a little bit more.
Use a cookie scoop to measure out the cookies evenly.
