Strawberry Shortcake Cookies

The sweet smell of strawberries in my local fruit and vegetable market inspired me to seek a cookie recipe for these delicious seasonal berries. These cookies have a scone-like texture, and are reminiscent of strawberry shortcakes my Mom made every summer. I adapted this recipe from Martha Stewart Living, June 2009.

Strawberry Shortcake Cookies
Makes 36 cookies

12 ounces strawberries, hulled and cut into 1/4-inch dice ( about 2 cups)
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
6 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
2/3 cup heavy cream, plus 1 to 2 teaspoons extra for mixing as needed
sanding sugar, for sprinkling

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Combine strawberries, lemon juice, and 2 tablespoons granulated sugar. Set aside.

Whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, and remaining 7 tablespoons granulated sugar in a large bowl. Cut in the butter with a pastry cutter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in cream until dough starts to come together, then stir in strawberry mixture. If strawberries do not incorporate well, an additional 1 to 2 teaspoons of heavy cream until strawberries are well incorporated.

Using a 1 1/2-inch cookie scoop, drop dough onto cookie sheets lined with parchment, spacing 2 inches apart. Sprinkle with sanding sugar, and bake until golden brown, 24 to 25 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack, and let cool. Cookies are best served immediately, or stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 day.

    Some relatively fast-growing herbaceous crops (especially annuals) are pioneers, or early-successional varieties. Others form the main vegetation of many steady habitats, occurring for example in your yard layer of jungles, or in naturally available habitats such as meadow, sea salt marsh or desert.
