My husband’s favorite cookie is what we call a strawberry shortcake cookie. It’s a cookie I’d never even heard of until about five years ago when we tried one at a local bakery in our hometown. It quickly became the go to cookie order whenever we had special events or if I wanted to surprise him with something special. Every time I tried them, I kept trying to figure our the bakery owner’s recipe. I was always too nervous to ask her for it. It was how she made her living.
A couple of years ago that bakery closed and she became the pastry chef at our local country club. We were still able to get her cakes, pies, and delicious breads, but unfortunately for some reason we were no longer able to get those cookies. Always in the back of my mind I thought, I surely could make these cookies and then I’d get busy and forget about them until the next time I wish I had a few to surprise my husband.
A friend of ours wanted to do something nice for my husband for helping them with a present for their son for Christmas. She called and asked me for his favorite cookie thinking I would say the normal reply of chocolate chip, peanut butter, sugar, or a butter cookie. When I told her his very favorite, she decided she would ask the pasty chef/ former bakery owner to make a special batch of these cookies just for my husband. She called back a few moments later laughing and to tell me they were made from a frozen cookie dough!
All this time!
Well friends, right then and there I was determined I could make his favorite cookie. And, I did.
Here’s how I make it.
