Are you looking for a delicious gluten-free cookie that is perfect for summertime snacking? Moist and chewy on the inside, White Chocolate Strawberry Shortcake Cookies literally melt in your mouth.
I am so excited to share my new gluten-free cookie recipe with you! I have shared these amazing cookies with several people and they all raved about them.
When I was dreaming up the recipe in my mind I imagined a strawberry vanilla cookie. However, after baking a couple dozen and sampling them (not all of them just a couple 😉 ), I realized something was missing. I checked out the pantry to see what I had on hand. Dark chocolate chips seemed to large and I was afraid they would overpower the cookie. I grabbed the white chocolate morsels and tossed in a handful to the remaining cookie dough. Oh yeah! One bite and I knew I had a winner! The white chocolate chips added just the right amount of texture and flavor to these cake-like cookies. Yum!!! Homemade vanilla adds rich flavor to these delicious gems.
If you are short on time, you can whip up the dough, place it in an airtight container in the refrigerator until you are ready to bake them. This gluten-free cookie dough will last three days in the fridge. I usually make the dough in the afternoon and baked them the next morning. If you are refrigerating the dough overnight, I recommend letting the cookie dough out sit out on the counter for about 30 to 45 minutes before baking.
