Strawberry chocolate cookies combine the delicious flavors of chocolate covered strawberries and chewy cookies into one epic cookie! Rich dark chocolate, fresh sweet strawberries, and a buttery chewy cookie…what’s not to love?!
2 and 3/4 cup all purpose flour
1 cup diced fresh strawberries
2 sticks butter, browned
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 and 1/4 cup dark brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
2 bars dark chocolate, chopped (3.5 oz bars) I use either this Lindt 70% dark chocolate or this Ghirardelli 72% dark chocolate
1. First make the brown butter. Slice the butter into tablespoon portions and add to a light colored pot over medium heat. Cook the butter until evenly melted, then adjust the heat higher to medium-high. Allow the butter to come to a rapid bubbly simmer. While adjusting the heat between medium and medium-high, continually whisk the butter until the milk particles have browned and the liquid is a rich caramel or amber color. I’ve found that once the butter is melted this process takes 4-5 minutes. Once fully browned, immediately pour into a heat proof bowl and set aside to slightly cool before using in the rest of the recipe.
2. In a large bowl combine the flour, white sugar, baking soda, and salt.
3. To the bowl with the lightly cooled brown butter, add the brown sugar, vegetable oil, vanilla, and eggs. Mix to combine.
4. Pour the wet mixture into the dry ingredients and lightly stir to start blending everything together. When the dough is just about formed, pour in the strawberries and the chopped dark chocolate. Stir to combine.
5. Place the bowl in the fridge to chill for 30 minutes.
6. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
7. When the dough has chilled, scoop and roll into cookie dough balls and place on a non-stick baking sheet. Bake the cookies for 10 minutes.
I like to make sure when I’m forming the cookie dough balls to place a strawberry piece directly next to a chocolate chunk, that way when it bakes you have a strawberry swimming in a pool of chocolate!
