Strawberry Oatmeal Cookies

Strawberry Oatmeal Cookies

I love an old standard with a zing of something unexpected. These Strawberry Oatmeal Cookies are just that. They are really so good! Chewy and buttery with a generous hint of strawberry.

I found these freeze-dried strawberries at Trader Joe’s, but most supermarkets have them as well.

Freeze-dried strawberries

I’d never used freeze-dried strawberries in anything before. I ate one by itself and it tasted like a tart piece of strawberry styrofoam. They do make a very meaningful contribution to this cookie, however.

Chopped freeze-dried strawberries

You have to finely chop them.

Combine all of the dry ingredients and set aside.

Beat the softened butter and sugars together until creamy. Add egg and mix on low until blended. Add vanilla. Gradually add the flour mixture until combined and then fold in the chopped strawberries.

Scoop dough into balls and place on a parchment-lined cookie sheet. I used my small black scoop, which is the equivalent of 2 tablespoons. I talk about my scoops (dishers) in my Seriously Chocolate Cookie post here. Bake at 350° for about 8 minutes, or until light golden brown.
