For me, seasonal crops of fresh strawberries mark the beginning of summer. Growing up, my mom would get them in large quantities freezing some for yummy Strawberry Daiquiris (mine were virgin of course!), using some for strawberry shortcake, and churning homemade strawberry ice cream with the rest. I loved the way the kitchen smelled when she would slice them, their juicy sweetness filling the air with the smell of summer.
Well, its that time again and with such a short time to enjoy strawberries in their full glory I am taking advantage! Thanks to one of my favorite blogs, Just a Smidgen, I found this recipe! First was Strawberry Cake, now this, Strawberry Shortcake Cookies! These delectable little bites of strawberry goodness are so moist and just sweet enough making them so addicting. Unfortunately, I did not have the Lemoncello, and since it was Sunday, I had no access, but rest assured, no harm done! Next time Lemoncello! As a side note, we added a dollop of vanilla ice cream on some of the warm cookies out of the oven…need I say more?
