Recipe for Strawberries and Cream Cookies. This shortbread dough is enlivened with a splash of cream along with bits of dried strawberries.

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

  3. In a food processor, whiz sugar to finely pulverize, about 10 seconds.
  4. In a mixer bowl, cream sugar and butter on low speed until well blended. Then add flour, vanilla, cream, and salt and blend well. When almost blended into a dough, add white chocolate and dried strawberries, mixing by hand to incorporate and make a firm dough.
