'Chocolate Covered Strawberry Cookies'
Source: Adapted from Lauren's Latest
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cup fresh chopped strawberries
1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips (for drizzle)
1. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Stir in egg and vanilla. Add remaining dry ingredients and stir until just incorporated. Gently fold in strawberries. Refrigerate dough 30 minutes.
2. Heat oven to 350. Scoop dough into small rounds and place on parchment paper lined baking sheets.
3. Bake 7-8 minutes until edges start to barely golden (mine took more like 12-15 minutes, but my cookies were a bit bigger). Cool 5 minutes on baking sheet and transfer to cooling rack.
4. In a small bowl, microwave chocolate chips,stirring every 20 seconds until melted completely. Drizzle over cookies. Serve warm.
*** Just a tip: After melting my chocolate chips, I take a plastic bag, set one corner of it down into a short glass and wrap the opening of the bag around the top of the glass. Pour the chocolate into the bag, remove the bag from the glass (the purpose of the glass is just to hold the bag open for you), then snip a tiny corner of the bag, and drizzle the chocolate over the cookies. Much more control, and no mess! ***
