I loved this recipe (and well, the cookies), because they merry the strawberries (which stay colorful and firm) with creamy cookies, and strawberries like cream 🙂
I must admit these are not my invention, I am not very creative in baking, and I know that in cookies and cakes you’d better follow the recipe than go crazy adding more of this or more of that, so here is where found the recipe here: http://omgchocolatedesserts.com/strawberry-cookies/ and I keeped it almost unchanged (mainly converting the American measures to grams 🙂
So, they are not my invention, but I think they will be a frequent guest at our home!
Strawberry – white chocolate – cream cheese cookies
1¼ cup flour
½ tsp baking powder
⅛ tsp salt
¼ cup butter at room temperature
110 mascarpone or cream cheese

Add egg and vanilla and mix well.
Gradually add flour mixture and mix until it’s well combined.
Stir in chopped white chocolate.
Sprinkle strawberries with 1-2 tablespoon flour, toss them until all strawberries are coated with thin layer of flour and then stir them really gently in the batter.
Place tbsp. of batter onto the pan leaving some space between them
Place the pan in the refrigerator for 5-10 minutes before baking.
