For those times I had lots of strawberries, for my mom’s birthday we made lots of these cookies, she loved them, at the party the kids had taken them all in just a blink, try them because they’re really addictive!
Preparation Time: 10 mins

Additional: 10 mins
- 1 ½ cups white sugar
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 1 egg
- 3 tablespoons strawberry puree
- 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- ½ teaspoon baking powder
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ½ cup white sugar
- 1 teaspoon red colored sugar (Optional)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Beat 1 1/2 cups white sugar and butter together in a bowl with an electric mixer until creamy, about 3 minutes. Beat egg into butter mixture. Add strawberry puree.
Stir flour, vanilla extract, baking powder, and salt into strawberry mixture with a spoon until flour is completely incorporated into dough.
Stir 1/2 cup white sugar and red sugar together in a shallow bowl.
Roll dough into walnut-sized balls, roll each ball in red sugar mixture, and place each ball 1 1/2 inches apart onto prepared baking sheets. Lightly press each dough ball down to flatten.
Bake cookies in the preheated oven until lightly browned, 10 to 15 minutes. Cool.
