Chocolate Chips and Strawberry Cookies

Barbara Hall
These are fairly quick and easy to make, but as always, the time does not include the cookie dough for 30 minutes in the refrigerator.

Ingredients
  

  • ½ cup Butter unsalted 1 stick room temperature
  • 4 oz Cream Cheese room temperature
  • 1-½ cup Powdered sugar 169 g
  • 1 Egg
  • ½ teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1 tablespoon Frozen Strawberry Daiquiri thawed
  • 1-¾ cups All purpose flour 210 g
  • ½ teaspoon Baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon Ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup Dried strawberries 4 oz bag cut up
  • ½ cup Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chip
  • ¼ cup Super fine sugar

Instructions
 

  • Weigh or measure the powdered sugar into a bowl and set that aside. In another bowl, weigh or measure the flour, baking powder, cinnamon and run a whisk through to blend. I used the dried strawberries that come whole in a 4 oz bag, which I cut into smaller pieces about a chocolate chip's size.
  • Add the butter and cream cheese to a stand mixer or use a handheld and mix for 2 to 3 minutes on medium speed. Turn the mixer down to a low speed and slowly add the powdered sugar. I usually stop and scrape down the sides to incorporate all three ingredients. Crack an egg into a small bowl to eliminate any eggshell fragments before adding the egg to the mixing bowl. At this time, also add the vanilla extract and the strawberry daiquiri liquid and mix through. Scrape down the side and turn the mixer to a slow speed. Gradually add the flour mixture until incorporated, then turn the mixer to a medium speed to ensure all the flour has been absorbed.
  • Stop the mixer, scrape down the sides and across the bottom before adding the cut-up dried strawberries and the chocolate chips. I turn on the mixer for about 20 seconds, then take the bowl off the stand. I get a good spatula to turn the cookie dough over a couple of times to ensure the strawberries and chocolate chips are evenly distributed. Loosely cover the bowl and refrigerate for about 30 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 350°, and line 2 cookie sheet pans with parchment paper. Taking a paper plate (I use for easy throw away) and pour the superfine sugar onto the plate so you can roll the cookie balls around in the fine sugar. I use a medium cookie scoop and scooping a mound and roll it in your hands (it is a little tacky), then roll around in the superfine sugar before placing it on the cookie sheet pan. Bake for 11-13 minutes. Move them to a cooling rack as soon as you remove them from the oven. This recipe makes about 2 dozen.
