Ingredients in Strawberry Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • All-purpose flour: This recipe uses all-purpose flour to make the perfect cookie.
  • Unsalted butter: Use unsalted butter when baking so you have more control over the salt added to the cookies.
  • Sugar: This recipe uses a combination of white and brown sugar. Both sweeten but the brown sugar gives the cookies their golden brown color and more depth of flavor than white sugar alone. 
  • Vanilla extract: Use pure vanilla extract for the best flavor.
  • Eggs: Use large eggs!
  • Strawberries: Use fresh strawberries cut up into small pieces.
  • Chocolate chips: Milk chocolate chips work best with strawberries for their creamy sweet flavor.

How To Make Strawberry Cookies

Before getting started, make sure to read through the entire recipe card, prep your baking pans, and preheat the oven!

  1. Whisk: Whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt in a medium size bowl and set it aside.
  2. Cream: Cream together the butter, granulated sugar, light brown sugar, and vanilla extract with an electric mixer.
  3. Add eggs: Add the eggs one at a time. Fully mix it into the batter after each one. 
  4. Mix in the flour: Add the flour mixture to the batter and mix just until combined. It’s very important to not overmix.
  5. Stir in the strawberries: Use a spatula to gently stir in the fresh strawberries and chocolate chips. 
  6. Scoop: Use a cookie scoop or ice cream scooper to scoop the cookie dough into balls and place them on the prepared cookie sheet.
  7. Bake: Bake the cookies for 10 minutes. At that point rotate the baking sheet clockwise 180 degrees and bake for additional 4-5 minutes or until golden brown around the edges.

Recipe Tips & Variations

  • Don’t overmix the cookie dough. Once you add the flour the gluten starts to activate and when it’s overmixed your cookies may end up tough rather than soft.
  • Press extra chips on the top right when the cookies come out of oven. I usually add three or so chips to the top and gently push them into the soft cookie. They will melt into the cookie but mostly hold their shape making the cookies look fabulous.
  • Use different chips. You can swap the milk chocolate for white chocolate, dark chocolate, or semi-sweet chocolate chips.
  • Swap the fruit. You can use any other berry you want.
  • Fourth of July cookies. Use a quarter cup of strawberries and a quarter cup of blueberries along with white chocolate chips for patriotic cookies.

Recipe FAQ

Should I chill the cookie dough before baking it?

No, you don’t need to but you can if you want! That’s entirely up to you! When I bake these cookies, they don’t tend to overspread when placed in the hot oven. However, it’s never a bad idea to chill the cookie dough for about 30 minutes before scooping and baking if you want to! It’s a good way to make sure the cookies don’t spread out and become thin when heated. 

What’s the best way to scoop cookies?

I always use a 1 tablespoon cookie scoop and each cookie dough ball has 2 scoops of cookie dough, meaning that each cookie dough ball is 2 tablespoons in size. In my opinion, this is the perfect-sized cookie! If you don’t have a cookie scoop, you can use an ice cream scooper instead, but you will only need 1 ice cream scoop of cookie dough.  And to make it super easy for you to learn how to scoop the perfect cookie, I created a step-by-step guide on How To Scoop The Perfect Cookie! Check it out for some really helpful tips and tricks.
