It has been WAAAAY too long since I’ve done any baking.
But when I came across a Cooking Light cookie recipe that called for dried strawberries, brown sugar, and white chocolate, I couldn’t get to the kitchen fast enough!
At first I thought that dried strawberries and white chocolate in the same cookie would be too sweet, so I added a few chopped macadamia nuts. LOVED IT!
These turned out to be delicious, chewy, chunky cookies.
I found that the strawberry flavor was a really nice alternative to the usual raisin. I mean, you almost expect a raisin in an oatmeal cookie, but in this one you get a little strawberry surprise in every bite! I will say that the dried strawberries don’t have a very strong flavor, so next time I’ll add more of them than the recipe calls for.
Note: I halved the recipe, used a medium cookie scoop, and it made 10 cookies.
