Egg-less Strawberry Cookies Recipe from Scratch


Strawberry cookies are delicious , fruity , sweet  bakes . Crispy on the edges and chewy in the center , these egg-less cookies loaded with fresh strawberries make up for a perfect summer-time snack. Sweet ripe strawberries are in abundance in local markets and this is the best time to make these cookies too. Valentine's day is just around the corner and these gorgeous cookies studded with berries and with a sparkling pink color are perfect treats for loved ones !


The recipe of these strawberries cookies is simple and easy to follow . I have made them from scratch using whole wheat flour , butter and cane sugar. For the beautiful pink color , i have added few drops of beetroot juice .The cookies can be served as snack at tea time or as a light after dinner dessert or at breakfast with milk. My son merrily takes them to school in his snack box. I got inspiration to make these cookies from my Strawberry Muffin recipe which i had tried last year and which was a great hit too !



Preparation time: 30 minutes
Cooking time: 18-20 minutes
Serves: 8 cookies

Ingredients:

  • 1.5 cup whole wheat flour
  • 8-10 Strawberries
  • 4 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1/3 cup cane sugar / regular sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 3-4 drops of beetroot juice (optional)
  • Pinch of Salt



Method:

  1. In a bowl take the whole wheat flour and combine it with baking powder and salt. Keep Aside.


2. Wash and hull the strawberries , slice them roughly and mash them in a bowl with a potato masher or using your finger tips. Add beetroot juice and vanilla essence to it. Mix , keep aside.


 3. Now in a large mixing bowl, cream the butter and add sugar to it. Whisk well. Add strawberry mix to it . Blend everything properly.


 4. Now add flour to it in batches and combine into a dough. Do not knead much. The dough will be sticky , wrap it in a cling film and refrigerate for 20-30 minutes  or until it is easy to handle.




5. Meanwhile preheat the oven at 180 degrees Celsius . After refrigeration time, the dough will be firm and easy to handle. Pinch out portions of the dough and make gooseberry size balls and flatten them . Arrange all the cookies on a greased cookie tray and bake them in a preheated oven at 180 degrees Celsius for 18-20 minutes. Remove from the oven and let them cool down completely. Serve with milk and treat your loved ones. If some cookies are left , keep them in an air tight container and use withing 4-5 days.
