Strawberry Cookies – a sweet goodby to the season

Rate this post

Dear strawberry, sweet and bright, your season winds down, a bittersweet sight. With each juicy bite, we savor the taste and begrudgingly bid farewell with haste.

Hi there,

This year’s strawberry season seemed to produce incredibly juicy and flavorful strawberries. It truly is a marvel to behold the fleeting nature of life, and the strawberries are no exception to this rule. It seems that nature’s most precious gems are appreciated most when they are scarce, which is why I hold strawberries in such high regard. A mere glimpse of their bright crimson hue and I am already lost in their luscious and succulent aroma. It’s only during the rare and precious season of strawberries that I indulge in their sweetness. The bright but tasteless berries on offer in the market do not hold a candle to these delectable fruits!

I worked hard, preserving all the sweetness of the spring. I made strawberry prosecco marmalade, strawberry prosecco bundt cake, strawberry vinegar (which has become a new favorite ingredient), and with the last berries of the season, these light-as-air strawberry and white chocolate cookies. I am going to share the recipe for the cookies with you today.

Time to put on your apron.

  1. Annika Perry – East Anglia, UK – I’m a versatile writer whose books span across various genres. My first venture into publishing is "The Storyteller Speaks" and this a collection of short stories, flash fiction and poetry. Published in January 2018 "The Storyteller Speaks" has received over twenty-five glowing reviews on Amazon. "Oskar’s Quest", my second book, it is a beautifully illustrated children’s book for younger children (and all young at heart!). "Oskar’s Quest" is an engaging story of adventure and courage. I have also completed one more story for children which is as yet unpublished. "Island Girl", my first full-length novel, is in its final edits and I’m looking forward to publishing this in due course. Writing has been a passion since childhood although it is only in the past few years that I have seriously started to write fiction. Initially, a writing course gave me encouragement and direction with my writing. Furthermore, the tutor recommended blogging and in January 2015 I set up my blog, Annika Perry’s Writing Blog. I never imagined the friendships I would make and I’ve been overwhelmed with the warmth and incredible support from people around the world. In spring 2014 I won First Prize in a Writing Magazine’s Short Story Competition which was a fantastic surprise and joy. Furthermore, I was short-listed for an Ink Tears Short Story Competition the same year. The recognition of my writing ability outside of my family and friends was a huge boost to my self-confidence and as a result, I started the mammoth undertaking of writing my first novel. Meanwhile, in early 2017 I was greatly encouraged by my friends and writers to publish some of my numerous short stories in a book. It was with great excitement and sense of achievement to launch the publication of my first book, "The Storyteller Speaks", in December 2017 with the paperback released in January 2018. The latter part of 2018 and throughout 2019 was busy with the realisation of a dream project, to publish a children’s book. Like so many parents, my son when young would request a bedtime story. These I tended to make up and a couple became his and my personal favourites. I revisited one of these stories and after much rewriting, editing and finding a wonderful illustrator, "Oskar’s Quest" was ready! Overall my road to publication has been circuitous and aided by the support of my family and friends. After gaining my BA Honours Degree in German Language and Literature from the University of Leeds I started working as a journalist. Following a serious illness, I changed career and gained a position as Administration Manager for a busy timber import company. I worked here for many years before leaving to pursue my passion for writing. I am now a full-time writer, blogger and book reviewer. I was born in Gothenburg, Sweden and at the age of six, moved to the UK with my family where we settled near Ilkley, West Yorkshire. Since then I have moved many times but now live in a small village in North Essex, England with my husband and occasionally my son, when he returns during university holidays. I am on the following social media sites and look forward to seeing you there. If you have a specific enquiry please use the form below. Twitter: Author Website: Amazon Page: Goodreads: Linkedin:

    I love anything with strawberries and these cookies look so good. We get two seasons here in Spain so there is almost always fresh strawberries around! (not right now but there will be more in August!).

        Thanks, Bernadette. The fresh produce here is amazing.

  4. OMG! These are super fantastic! So many ideas with strawberries…mine own in Finland will be ready in July.

  5. HI Bernadette, these cookies look lovely. I had to look of stevia and I see it is a sweetener like xylitol.

My stories want to explode from my head. They demand my attention and surge from my fingertips faster than I can put them to paper. I love what I do.
    D. Wallace Peach says:

    Looks delicious, Bernadette. I need to scout out some fresh strawberries to make these. The ones in the fridge are for strawberry mojitos. 🙂

  7. Love the use of olive oil in these tasty looking cookies. I’m sure the dough will work well with other berries as well. 🙂

    • Hi Ronit, my husband has a sweet tooth and severe heart disease. So, I am working hard on finding sweets that use olive oil to replace butter.

  8. the Painted Apron – Life is all about creativity for me, as long as I'm creating something I am happy! I hope I will inspire your daily life and give you ideas for your own wonderful creations!
    Jenna says:

    These sound really good Bernadette! I’m curious, how do you use your strawberry vinegar?

    • Hi Jenna, I have used it when making a fresh spinach and strawberry salad. I also have used it to quick pickle onions and then used the onions for cucumber and onion salad. I find a splash of it in a not highly seasoned recipe really wakes up the flavors.

I write fantasy novels currently. I also make cards, knit, crochet, tat, do cross stitch and paint. I enjoy walking on the Downs, cycling and kayaking. I do not enjoy housework, but like cooking.
    V.M.Sang says:

    Delicious sounding recipe.
    When I was young, it was true that strawberries were seasonal, but now, not so much. We can get strawberries from around the world at any season. Even Christmas!
    Having said that, the local fruit is much better than that shipped halfway round the world. Sweeter and tastier.
    I remember the excitement when the season began; buying fruit from the roadside vendors. You don’t see them now because strawberries aren’t seasonal anymore. It’s such a pity that we’ve lost that excitement.

    • I am fortunate to live in an area that still has some local farmers. So, I sort of still eat seasonally and get excited about the seasonal produce. Next up blueberries.

    Awakening Wonders says:

    Very delightful – and perfect for the season!

      • Fortunately yes, the ones that comes from Korea are the best here 😉🍓 they taste and smell of strawberries 🍓 😉 Of course still nothing compared with the ones just freshly picked 😉

  11. Bernadette is it possible the strawberries are done for the year already? It goes by so fast. Anyhow, I have never had a strawberry cookie.These look moist and delicious and have my favorite chocolate in them!!!!

  12. The combo of “easy peasy” and strawberries made me whoop out loud. Can’t wait to make these. But, ummm, what is Stevia?

    • Stevia is a natural sweetener with very few calories. It is marketed under that name. The product I use is a combination of cane sugar and stevia. I have found that it work well in baked goods to reduce the insulin spike.

      • Good to know! And I’m one of those who does get a bad “insulin” spike when I eat sweets before a meal. (I’m not diabetic – sugar just goes straight to my head.) The good news on that is that I can’t eat sweets before a meal. :-0 Thanks for the info, Bernadette. xo

  13. What a fun cookie, and I see that you’ve made some good healthy swaps, too! So glad to see white chips in there. Great complement to the berries.

    • Doing my best with the healthy and still sweet. This nervous baker cannot believe she has the chutzpa to make changes. Ah, what we do for love….

  14. Strawberries are on sell right now so the timing of your recipe is perfect. They really sound good.
