One of the best and most classic desserts are chocolate chip cookies. They’re gooey and make you feel all warm inside. Up until now, I didn’t think they could get any better, until we added one ingredient: strawberries.
This new to us recipe is one I HAD to share with everyone, especially before National Chocolate Chip Day. Not only did we enjoy the finished results, Mila had a blast making these too.
Maybe a little too much fun with the extra flour!
Anyways, here’s what you’ll need to make these delicious cookies:
- 2 1/4 cups of flour
- 1 teaspoon of baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon of salt
- 1 stick of unsalted butter
- 1/2 cup of sugar
- 3/4 cup of brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract
- 2 large eggs
- 1/2 cup of chopped strawberries
- 1 cup of chocolate chips
Before making the cookie dough, preheat the oven to 370 F. Then line two large baking sheets with wax or parchment paper.
In a medium size bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
Next, in a large mixing bowl, use your mixer to cream the butter, sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla extract. I let my butter warm up a little bit to help it cream. Honestly, I just popped it in the microwave for 20 seconds.
Then, add eggs in one at a time. Mix in between eggs.
After it’s mixed, slowly add the flour mixture in. Just mix it until combined and don’t over mix.
Once you get a good dough consistency, fold in strawberries and chocolate chips. I used a spatula for this.
Now it’s time to place them on the cooking sheet. You can use an ice cream or cookie scoop to help with this part. I just used my hands and made little balls. It was way easier for me this way than using a spoon or anything.
Then, place in the oven and bake for 10 minutes. Rotate the cookie sheet after and place back in the oven for 4-6 more minutes. Your cookies should have holden brown on their edges.
Once it’s done, remove from the oven and let them cool down… or not.
We enjoyed these cookies a little too much. I have a feeling it’ll be a recipe we make over and over again.
Let me know in the comments if you end up trying this recipe… you most definitely should!
