These Strawberry Shortcake Cookies really did taste just like strawberry shortcake! I love trying new desserts instead of just your basic chocolate chip cookie etc. Plus these look pretty which I love! I will say that they need to be eaten fresh out of the oven and I’ll drain the juice out of the berry mixture before adding them to the dough next time. The juices just made it too wet.RECIPE FROM Martha Stewart seen on Confessions of a Bake-aholic

Are Strawberries Good For You?

Strawberries are high in antioxidants and packed with fiber and vitamins.

Strawberries are also a good source of manganese and potassium.

How Long Will Fresh Strawberries Keep?

Fresh strawberries will keep for 4-7 days when stored properly.

You should remove any bruised or molding strawberries from the container before storing them in the refrigerator.

For longer shelf life, do not wash the berries until you are ready to serve them.

Is Shortcake the Same as Biscuits?

Shortcake is a sweet cake or sweet biscuit.

Shortcake is typically made with flour, sugar, baking powder or soda, salt, butter, milk or cream, and sometimes eggs.

It is sweeter than baking powder biscuits.
