Strawberry Cookie Recipe
My daughter called me and asked if I wanted to go to a few yard sales with her last Saturday. We love to find furniture that is structurally sound but, needs to be refinished. We found several pieces we really liked and a few unexpected things like a cookbook with a strawberry cookie recipe that I had to try.
This really nice lady had a bunch of cookbooks from the Strawberry Festival in Florida. She said her aunt sends them to her every year. The one I got had a strawberry cookie recipe that was made from a strawberry cake mix. It inspired me so I tweaked it a little and made an icing recipe to pour over the cool cookies. I am very pleased with the way they turned out.
Strawberry Cookie Recipe:
The hardest part of making these cookies is applying the icing. It is not really hard but it is a bit messy.
I snapped this picture with my phone and it is very blurry and the lighting if way off. I had icing on my hands and didn’t want to mess up my camera so I grabbed my phone and took this picture. I added it because I wanted to show you how I iced the cookies. I placed the cookies on my bakers rack with plastic cutting mats under them and spooned the icing over each cookie. I had a few bowls under then to catch the excess icing. Once the dripping icing almost stopped, I removed the bowls and left the cookies to dry on the racks. Next time I make these, I will replace it with a better picture.
If you want to dress the up a little you can add a strawberry edible decoration. I think it makes them look cute and if you take them to a party, everyone will know what kind of cookies they are without asking. If you are looking for a great lemon cookie recipe from a box cake mix, you should try these. They are wonderful!
