Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 3.4 oz package cheesecake pudding mix
  • 1 1/2 cups softened butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup freeze-dried strawberries
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a baking sheet for baking by lining with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • In a medium sized mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda and cheesecake pudding powder. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to combine the butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla and mix on medium low speed until smooth.
  • Add the flour, baking soda and cheesecake pudding powder mixture until well incorporated.
  • Stir in the strawberries and chocolate chips just until combined - do not overmix.
  • Use a 1.5 inch cookie scoop to roll dough balls. Place them evenly apart on the cookie sheet allowing room for spreading.
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes or until edges are lightly golden brown.
  • If desired, you can add additional strawberries and chocolate chips on top immediately after removing from the oven.
  • Allow to cool completely on a cooling rack before serving.

Notes

  1. If adding additional toppings, do it right when you remove cookies from the oven, otherwise they won’t stick! 
  2. You can use fresh berries for this recipe, however, I love the concentrated flavor of using freeze dried berries and they keep the cookie batter a nice beige color. 
  3. Once the dry and wet ingredients are combined, keep stirring to a minimum.
  4. I love the combination of big white chocolate chips and mini dark chips for this cookie! When testing, my taste tester used large chips for both the white and dark and visually,  the chocolate chips kind of overpowered the strawberries. Using mini dark chocolate chips really helped draw your eye to the strawberries.
