These strawberry shortbread cookies will soon become one of your favorite desserts! These soft cookies consist of a sweet biscuit base in cookie form, loaded with chopped strawberries, and topped with a sweet sugar glaze. No Cookie Mix!
Preheat the oven to 375 F. In a medium bowl combine the sweet strawberries, lemon juice and 1 tablespoon of sugar. Set aside.
In a large bowl combine flour, sugars, baking powder, baking soda, salt. Cut in the butter until crumbly.
Pour in the sweet cream and knead the dough until it comes together.
Stir in diced strawberries but discard the strawberry juice in the bottom of the bowl to avoid excess moisture. Set it aside, we will need it later.
Scoop about 1 ½ tablespoons of dough balls onto a baking sheet line with parchment paper, 2-3 inches apart. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of sugar on the cookies.
Bake for 15 minutes until the biscuits become fluffy and baked through. Let cool.
While cookies are cooling prepare the glaze (optional): mix 1 tablespoon of strawberry juice and powdered sugar until smooth glaze forms.
Drizzle the glaze over cooled shortcake cookies and enjoy!
