Perfect for any summer party you might be throwing or attending this weekend.

Yum strawberries!

Because really …………strawberry = summer.


recipe via martha… and makes about 3 dozen yummy cookies

  • 12 ounces strawberries, hulled and cut into 1/4-inch dice (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 coarse salt
  • 3 ounces (6 tablespoons) cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
  • 2/3 cup heavy cream
  • Sanding sugar, for sprinkling
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Combine strawberries, lemon juice, and 2 tablespoons granulated sugar. Whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, and remaining 7 tablespoons granulated sugar in a large bowl. Cut in the butter with a pastry cutter, or rub in with your fingers, until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in cream until dough starts to come together, then stir in strawberry mixture.
  • Using a 1 1/2-inch ice cream scoop or a tablespoon, drop dough onto baking sheets lined with parchment, spacing evenly 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, but can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 day.
  • {special note from d, nothing to do with cookies….  kudos to the chalkboard writer at the capitol hill cupcake royale.  I walk by your sign at least twice a day.  Your writings on July 1 were genius.  And it worked –  I bought a cupcake. 

    Visit your local cupcake royale – if you are lucky enough to live in Seattle – and get the July cupcake of the month…. the Strawberry 66.  According to the chalkboard out front, if everyone eats one of these… summer WILL come. 

    And if you don’t, and we never get summer this year… I WILL hunt you down AND  feed you a Strawberry 66 until the sun remembers where we live.}

    happy 4th of july! 

    (and next week we will talk about how fast the year is going because it seriously was just january, right….????????)
