Tips for Stellar Strawberry Cheesecake Cookies

To ensure your Strawberry Cheesecake Cookies turn out absolutely perfect, keep these tips in mind:

  • Use room temperature ingredients for the best texture and consistency.
  • Dice the strawberries into small pieces so they distribute evenly throughout the dough.
  • Don’t overmix the dough once the dry ingredients are added, or the cookies may become tough.
  • For evenly baked cookies, rotate the baking sheet halfway through the baking time.
  • Let the cookies cool completely before frosting to prevent the frosting from melting.
  • Add a touch of lemon zest to the cream cheese frosting for an extra burst of flavor.

If you prefer a more concentrated strawberry flavor, you can also consider adding a dollop of strawberry jam or preserves to the center of each cookie before baking for a delightful strawberry filled cookie experience.
