I love any cookie that says shortbread and they are called Strawberry Shortcake Cookies, perfect for Valentines!!!
I found this recipe in the archives
on Martha Stewart
12 ounces strawberries, hulled and cut into 1/4-inch pieces (2 cups)
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon lemon zest
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
2/3 cup heavy cream
Coarse sugar, for sprinkling over the cookies
Makes 3 dozen cookies.
Combine strawberries, lemon juice, and 2 Tablespoons of granulated sugar in a medium bowl. Set aside.
Whisk together the flour, remaining sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Using a pastry cutter, cut in the butter to the flour mixture until coarse crumbs are formed. You can also use your fingers. Stir in the heavy cream until the dough starts to come together, then gently fold in strawberries.
Using a 1-1/2 inch cookie scoop, drop dough onto cookie sheets, evenly spaced apart. Sprinkle with coarse sugar. Bake for 22-27 minutes, or until cookies are golden brown. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. The cookies are best eaten the same day.
