Cream Cheese Strawberry Cookies

A few days ago, my good friend Alex came to my place for „only five minutes“!
“Vera, I don’t have much time to chat. I just came by to leave you these strawberries which I picked for Marco”, he said while giving me a bowl of beautiful strawberries which smelled through the whole house the moment he brought them.

“Thanks Alex. They are beautiful. I will say hello to Marco for you”, I told him not wanting to disappoint him because my picky son doesn’t even want to look at strawberries this summer, no matter how beautiful they are.

“Hmmm, maybe I could play some kind of trick on my little bad boy. If I make him cookies (one of his favorite snacks) with these strawberries, maybe he won’t rebel” I was thinking full of optimism.

1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup unsalted butter-softened
4 oz cream cheese-softened
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoons vanilla extract
3/4 cup chopped fresh strawberries
2 tablespoon lemon juice
1–2 tablespoon flour
5 oz white chocolate-chopped
sanding sugar

Preheat the oven to 350 F and line pans with parchment paper.
Pour fresh lemon juice over chopped strawberries, drain them after a few minutes.
Whisk together 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour, salt and baking powder and set aside.
Beat butter with sugar and cream cheese until it’s light and fluffy.
Add egg and vanilla and mix well.
Gradually add flour mixture and mix until it’s well combined.
Stir in chopped white chocolate.
Sprinkle strawberries with 1-2 tablespoon flour, toss them until all strawberries are coated with thin layer of flour and then stir them really gently in the batter.
Drop heaping tablespoon of batter onto pan leaving an inch space between.
Set the cookies in the refrigerator for 5-10 minutes before baking.
Sprinkle the cookies with sanding sugar if you want, but do not overdo it because they are sweet enough.
Bake for 13-15 minutes( until the edges become golden brown).
Let them cool a few minutes in the pan than transfer them to a wire racks to cool completely.
