This Strawberry Shortcake Cookies Recipe Turns That Classic Dessert Into a Cookie

Strawberry shortcake is a classic southern dessert. This easy strawberry shortcake cookie recipe is a creative way to use those spring and summer strawberries.

This easy cookie recipe is perfect dunked into a glass of milk (maybe strawberry milk?). Be sure to share!

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 20 to 24 minutes
Total Time: 30 to 34 minutes


  • 2 cups diced strawberries
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup sugar (divided)
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons cold butter, cut into pieces
  • 2/3 cup heavy cream


Here’s how you make it:

  1. Combine the strawberries, lemon juice and 1 tablespoon of sugar in a bowl. Set aside. 
  2. In another bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt and remaining sugar.
  3. Using a pastry cutter or your fingers, cut the butter into the flour mixture until it looks like coarse crumbs. Add the heavy cream and stir to combine. Once it resembles cookie dough, stir in the strawberries.
  4. Drop by tablespoons full onto parchment paper-lined baking sheets. Bake in a preheated 375-degree F oven for about 20 to 24 minutes. Remove from the baking sheets onto wax paper.
  5. For the glaze, combine the powdered sugar, milk and vanilla until smooth. Drizzle over cooled cookies.
