Strawberry Shortcake Cookies

Now if you go visit the site where the original recipe came from, you will see beautifully edited pictures with perfect lighting and perfectly shaped cookies. Kudos to that girl. I, however, am not that girl. You can find those pictures here. Although I can’t give you those super awesome perfect cookie pictures, I can give you the same amazingly wonderful tasting cookies. These cookies are sweet and moist and yummy!

-12oz fresh strawberries, cut up

-2 Tablespoons sugar

-2 teaspoons lemon juice

-1/4 teaspoon lemon zest

-1/2 cup sugar

    I think I pinned that same recipe. Glad to see a “real life” photo of the result – who cares what they look like if they taste great, right? Thanks!!!
