Stirring Up Ideas In The Kitchen

Strawberry Shortbread Cookies

Hi everyone, I’m Jesseca, the cook and baker over at One Sweet Appetite. I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am to be guest blogging here on BHG’s Delish Dish today! It wasn’t hard to pick a recipe to recreate, but these Strawberry Shortbread Cookies quickly pulled me in and won me over!

Strawberries are high on my list of favorite flavors. I’ve made everything from cupcakes to donuts but somehow never thought to create a cookie! I am in love with the fun speckled effect in both the cookie and the sweet glaze. This recipe is a show stopper and a great way to cozy up to friends and neighbors.

I chose to use a round scalloped edge cutter to give these a clean yet elegant look, but I’m sure you could use any shape your heart desires. Maybe a heart for valentines day or rectangle?

I kept recipe modifications minimal. Shortbread cookies tend to be fairly basic and easy to whip up. The biggest change came with the amount of preserve added to the dough. After mixing things together I decided doubling the amount of strawberry preserve was the best route to take. It added more of that gorgeous speckle and a small punch of berry flavor.

I also substituted the almond extract for pure vanilla. Mainly because that is what I had on hand, but I really think it helped enhance the berry goodness and worked in my favor. If you are in a bit of a time crunch you can actually skip the chilling process. I had a hungry five year old lurking in the kitchen who hasn’t mastered the art of patience. To compensate I rolled the dough in between two pieces of wax paper to keep it from sticking.

These cookies quickly vanished. I always know a recipe is a keeper when I receive the stamp of approval from my five year old critic! Ready to try out the recipe for yourself? Click here!
