Strawberry Shortcake Cookies

It’s National Strawberry Shortcake Day!

The fine people at Driscoll’s Berries asked if I would like to join in on the festivities… of course I would!

I am a pretty big fan of Strawberries. {In case you forgot, I stuffed a whole strawberry in a cookie and also made my own strawberry toaster strudels just recently.}

Both- delish!

But in keeping with the theme of my Kid Friendly Lunches this week, I wanted to make a Strawberry Shortcake recipe that was both kid friendly and fun for adults.

I’m sure it’s not necessary to create a kid friendly dessert, I mean…it’s a dessert.

Don’t all kids just go crazy for dessert?

The base of this treat is just a simple cake batter cookie with white chocolate chips. I placed a little of the cake/cookie dough into a star shaped whoopie pie pan from Wilton {love}. Cause stars are cute, and cause it’s also maybe a little Patriotic??

Baked them.


With a slight cake texture, and with also a chewy cookie texture, these cookies turned out incredible!

Next thing to do is slice up some strawberries and let them sit in some glorious sugar until magic happens and they get all sweet and gooey.

Once that happens you’re ready to eat!

Just add a dollop of Cool Whip or make your own whipped cream, and place a nice big strawberry on top, or more, whatever fills your fancy.

If you want to be all Patriotic about it, cause Strawberry Shortcake is the most common dessert for 4th of July…

Add some blueberries on top!


What’s even better, is that these are small enough to pick up and eat with your hands {go for it kids!}.
