Strawberry Shortcake Cookie Recipe Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • Coarse sugar for dusting
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 cup heavy cream

Strawberry Shortcake Cookie Recipe Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream butter, sugar and shortening. Add eggs and vanilla and beat just until blended. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt in a separate bowl, then stir into the wet ingredients just until blended. Cookie scoop or roll into balls, and roll in sugar. Drop onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake 10 to 12 minutes. Cool on a wire rack. In a clean, cold metal mixing bowl, beat the softened cream cheese, sugar, vanilla extract and almond extract. With the whisk attachment, beat until smooth. Pour the heavy cream in slowly while it’s whipping. Scrape the bowl occasionally, and stop when you get stiff peaks. Pipe a dollop of the whipped cream frosting onto the strawberry shortcake cookie and top with fresh strawberry slices or freeze dried strawberries.

  1. What a fantastic idea to use freeze dried crushed berries as a topping! Raspberry, blueberry, pineapple…I’ll be using this all the time on desserts now! Great tip Heather!
