Prep Time:10 minutes
Cook Time:12 minutes
Total Time:22 minutes
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
1 cup white sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 tbsp vanilla extract
3 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
15 small, fresh strawberries; stems removed
Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a large bowl (or using your stand mixer) combine butter, white sugar, and brown sugar, and beat with an electric mixer until creamy and fluffy. Slowly add the eggs, and vanilla, and continue to mix until combined.
In a separate bowl combine the flour, cinnamon, salt, and baking soda. Slowly add the dry flour ingredients to the wet ingredients, still beating until the cookie dough forms. Add the chocolate chips and fold them into the dough.
Take a small amount of cookie dough and place it in one hand, top with a fresh strawberry, and then top with another small amount of cookie dough. Using your hands, carefully cup around the cookie dough to enclose the strawberry, pinching the sides as you go.
Bake for 11-12 minutes or until the cookies is done to your liking. Let cool on the cookie sheet for 3 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
