Ingredients to make cookies

Making Strawberry White Chocolate Chunk Cookies

To make your strawberry white chocolate chunk cookies, begin by soaking chopped strawberries in lemon juice. Set this aside and move on to the next step of whisking together flour, baking powder, and salt.

Next, use an electric mixer to beat unsalted butter and cream cheese until fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla then mix well.

Beating eggs, butter, and cream cheese for making Strawberry White Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Stir in the flour mixture until a soft dough forms. Fold in chopped white baking chocolate.

Drain the lemon juice from the strawberries and coat the berries in flour.

Coating fresh strawberries in flour

Gently fold the strawberries into the cookie dough. It’s best to do this with a spoon or spatula and be gentle so you don’t crush all of the strawberries.

Scoop the cookie dough onto a parchment paper lined cookie sheets. The dough balls should be about 1 1/2 inches across and placed 2 inches apart on the cookie sheets.

Bake the cookies at 350°F for 12-14 minutes until the cookies are set and just beginning to lightly brown around the edges.

Can I freeze these cookies?

You can freeze your strawberry white chocolate chunk cookies in an airtight container in the freezer for up to three months. However, when the cookies are thawed, the strawberries will break down a bit and be a little mushy. These cookies are best when eaten fresh.

What kind of white chocolate should I use?

The type of white chocolate you use is important. White chocolate is notoriously easy to burn, so you need to be sure you’re using a good quality white chocolate meant for baking.

I used a Ghirardelli white baking chocolate bar and chopped it into chunks to add to the cookie dough. You will find this in the baking aisle in your grocery store on the shelf with other baking chocolate bars and chocolate chips.

Can I use frozen strawberries?

No, frozen strawberries will not work in this recipe. When frozen and then thawed, strawberries break down and become mushy. The whole cookie dough will be negatively impacted by using frozen strawberries instead of fresh.

Do I need to use fresh lemon juice?

No, fresh lemon juice is not essential. You can certainly use bottled lemon juice for soaking the strawberries. I used fresh squeezed juice because I had lemons on hand.

Soaking the strawberries in lemon juice really bumps up the flavor, so don’t skip this step.

Hi. These cookies turned out great. My only call out is, you missed putting the sugar in the instructions for the recipe.
I put my sugar in with the cream cheese and butter. I hope that was right ❤️
