Strawberry Shortcake Cookies

Can one ever get enough strawberries?
I actually have a friend who doesn't like them.
I'll keep her anyways, she likes raspberries, but I am
just a little skeptical of her!
Imagine how I felt the first time I brought her chocolate
dipped strawberries that I had slaved over and she
said she didn't like strawberries - in any form.

My son-in-law actually came up with the idea for these
delicious cookes that taste like a tiny strawberry shortcake.
Begin by making a sugar cookie.  I have the easiest cookie
if you are in a hurry, or even if you aren't it's great.
Just one egg,
One cube of butter (1/2 C.), softened, (don't substitute here),
And one package of cake mix.  I used Betty Crocker's French Vanilla.
Can't get much simpler than that.
Just put them all in your purple Kitchenaid, or whatever
color mixer you might have.
I should tell you the story behind the purple Kitchenaid.
Williams Sonoma had one they called purple for a while,
but it was really periwinkle and that just didn't do it
for me.  About 4 years ago I saw this lavendar one and
really wanted it.  I told my husband I wanted it for
Mother's Day.  He already had something for me
(turned out it was a telescope - woo hoo!)  Anyways,
I told him that he could get it for me, or I could get it
for him for Father's Day.  Guess what I got for Mother's
Day?  I was sooo happy that I didn't have to get it for him.
There, now you know!
On medium, blend until well mixed.
I use my #40 scoop from Williams Sonoma for a perfect
sized ball, or you can roll it by hand.
Bake at 350 for 10 minutes or until tops are dry.
Let cool, then frost.

1/2 C. softened butter
4 C. powdered sugar
1/2 tsp. almond flavoring
3-4 T. water, adding enough to make it fluffy
Beat in your mixer with the wire attatchment if you have
one.  Add enough water to make it fluffy.
I piped my frosting on with a giant star tip.
Then top your cookies with sliced strawberries
cut whatever way you like. 

These should be eaten the same day. 
I can't tell you how delicious these are, you have
to try them.
Go ahead, take one before you leave, I can't
eat them all myself, but believe me I have tried.

I will be posting this with The Girl Creative

Chocolat - French for Chocolate. I adored chocolate from a young age when I had to sneak in the cupboard to find where my mother had hidden the Nestle's Chocolate Chips. Having read about the famous chocolat shoppes in Paris, when I finally got there I was determined to try a chocolate from every Paris shoppe. I invite you to share my adventures in creating, in travel, and in life.

  15. Hi, Jacqueline, thank you for visiting my site yesterday evening and for your encouraging comments. (My Aunt almost went broke on the Betty Crocker Warm Delights as well) I love how you show step-by-step photos. Great work on the piping under and over the strawberries too... I need some practice. Right now my favorite is a snipped zip lock bag. The piping seems to be going along for me just as crocheting did - slow and steady. (smile) You're blog is beautiful!


  16. Hi, Jacqueline, thank you for visiting me and for your kind words. Glad you enjoyed my baking blog. Yours is beautiful and I love the piping you did in the above photos. Have a wonderful week and nice to meet you as well.


  17. This is a "wonderful" recipe, I LOVE your blog and I'm going to have to read "every word"!!! I have a friend like your strawberry gal, mine doesn't like "pie crust", can you imagine the "Horror" to see her "SCRAPING" the filling out of my homemade pies!!! I have an expression on my face the same as when someone in school was SCRAPING their finger nail across the chalk board...I always TRY to make her my rendition of "pie pudding"... OH and I do have your passion for chocolate too. My favorite CD is the soundtrack of the movie "CHOCOLAT"!!!

  18. These look so delicious and PERFECTLY round! I just might stay on your blog for a long time much to see:)

  19. I love this cookie recipe! (and your purple mixer) I have a weakness for cookies and KitchenAids.
