Prep time

Total time
 
Serves: Makes about 3 dozen
Ingredients
  • ½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
  • ½ cup golden brown sugar
  • ⅓ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons finely grated lemon zest
  • 1 large egg
  • 1-1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • ½ cup dried strawberries, roughly chopped
  • ½ cup dried blueberries
  • ½ cup white chocolate chips or chunks
  • 1-1/2 cups strawberries, washed and dried very well, and cut into a small dice
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the butter with both sugars, salt, vanilla and lemon zest. Stir until the mixture is smooth.
  3. Add in the egg and mix until it's completely blended in.
  4. Add in the flour and baking soda and mix just until it's incorporated.
  5. Fold in the dried strawberries, dried blueberries and white chocolate.
  6. Use two tablespoons or a 1-1/4-inch cookie scoop to shape the dough, dropping it onto the lined baking sheets as you go, with a couple of inches between each one.
  7. Use your fingers to gently flatten the top of each ball of dough slightly. Now carefully press a few of the fresh strawberry pieces into each one.
  8. Bake until the edges are beginning to turn a golden brown, about 12 minutes. Let them cool for at least 10 minutes on the baking sheet, and then transfer them to a cooling rack, or a plate.
Notes
With the fresh strawberries, these cookies are best when eaten the same day they're baked -- they are a soft cookie. (And FYI, they are also quite good without the fresh strawberries.)

It's pretty to add a few bits of the blueberries and white chocolate on top, along with the fresh strawberries.
