Simple Strawberry Cookies

When ’tis the season to eat strawberries you can’t get much better than these ridiculously simple strawberry cookies which are always a big hit with kids and adults alike. When the first Irish strawberries of the year arrived yesterday I thought what better excuse to make some treats! Treats and sweets are literally what are getting us through the great isolation of 2020 (thank you COVID-19) and these definitely put a smile of everyone’s face this afternoon. A great one for kids to get involved in as the steps are simple and manageable even for the smallest chefs. Strawberry slicing was a big hit even if they did eat half the ingredients before they ever got in the bowl!


Simple Strawberry Cookies


1 egg
2 tablespoons lemon juice
120ml vegetable oil (sunflower)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence
115g sugar
230 plain flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
140g fresh strawberries (chopped)


  1. Preheat oven to 180C and line two baking trays
  2. Whisk together the egg, sugar, lemon juice, vanilla and oil until well mixed.
  3. Mix in the flour and baking powder until well combined.
  4. Add the chopped strawberries, folding into the mixture gently.
  5. Spoon golf ball-sized rounds onto the baking trays, ensuring to space them out well as the cookies will expand. Sprinkle each ball with a little sugar before placing in the oven for 16-17 minutes or until golden brown.
  6. Allow to cool and enjoy!

I have another punnet of strawberries in the fridge which I plan on using in another to make my Dark Chocolate & Cream Cheese Mousse over the weekend. Click here for recipe. 

I let the boys chop their strawberries using their Kiddies Food Kutters which we swear by in the kitchen. I’ll link them here.
