Strawberry Shortcake Cookies with Vanilla Glaze

Strawberry Shortcake Cookies with Vanilla Glaze

I love that these strawberry shortcake cookies with vanilla glaze have all the flavors of strawberry shortcake in one handy cookie. The texture reminds me a little bit of a crisp muffin top and I love that. These cookies were a fun recipe to make and they taste so amazing! The batter used Greek yogurt instead of eggs and milk which I loved and made me feel like they were a little healthier. The cookies were a big hit with my kids (and their friends) and will make delicious school lunch treats for this week. I tried one last night and fell instantly in love! They are wonderful.

How to Make Strawberry Shortcake Cookies with Vanilla Glaze

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Place strawberries, lemon juice, 2 tablespoons flour, and 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar into a small mixing bowl; toss together until evenly coated. Set aside to allow flavors to mingle.

Combine together the 2 cups of flour, 1 cup of sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl. Cut in the butter until a fine and grainy texture forms.

Add the Greek yogurt and vanilla then mix until just combined – add an additional tablespoon or two of Greek yogurt if the batter is too dry. Fold in the strawberry mixture and lemon zest then mix until combined.

Spoon 2 tablespoons of dough at a time, about 1 inch apart, and place on the prepared baking sheet.

Bake for 15-18 minutes or until the cookies just started to brown on top. Remove from the oven to cool for a few minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack to cool completely.

Make the glaze by placing the powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla into a small bowl; mix well until creamy and smooth. Once the cookies have completely cooled, drizzle glaze over them, and serve. Enjoy!

  1. Would you change anything to make this work for another berry? Like blueberries? I’m allergic to strawberries, unfortunately, but these look DE-LIcious

  2. Looks very good Pam – I’m not used to hearing the word strawberry until early May.
