Ingredients
  

  • 2 cups fresh strawberries rough chopped
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 ¾ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter softened
  • 4 ounces cream cheese softened
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar plus 2 tablespoons
  • 2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 6 ounces white chocolate baking chips (½ bag)
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F
  • In a small mixing bowl, combine the chopped strawberries and lemon juice then set aside.
  • Sift together the 1 ¾ cup all-purpose flour, baking powder and salt. Set it aside.
  • Using either a stand mixer, or a medium-sized mixing bowl and handheld mixer on medium-high speed, cream together the softened butter and the softened cream cheese for 1 ½ to 2 minutes. Using a silicone spatula, scrape down the sides of the mixing bowl.
  • Add the granulated sugar, and continue to mix on medium-high for another 1 to 1 ½ minutes.
  • Reduce the mixer speed to low. Add the vanilla extract, and add the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each egg.
  • Keep the mixer on low speed and slowly add the sifted flour mixture ½ cup at a time.
  • Continue mixing on low, add the white chocolate baking chips. Mix just until the ingredients are well incorporated.
  • Drain the lemon juice from the chopped strawberries, and sprinkle the 2 tablespoons of flour over the strawberries. Stir to coat the berries. Shake off and discard any excess flour.
  • Carefully fold the coated strawberries into the cookie dough. Chill the dough covered in the refrigerator for 10 minutes.
  • Using a 1 to 1 ½ tablespoon cookie scoop, scoop out the dough, and space the dough balls 2 inches apart. Bake for 13 to 15 minutes, just until the edges of the cookies are golden.
  • Allow the cookies to rest on the cookie sheet for 5 minutes before moving them to a cooling rack. Allow the cookies to cool completely.
