Strawberry Shortcake Cookies
Slightly adapted from Emily Bites
12 oz strawberries, hulled and diced into tiny/small pieces
1 Tbs juice squeezed from an orange
1/2 tsp orange zest
1/2 cup and 2 Tbs sugar
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1 1/2 cups white whole wheat flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
4 Tbs cold butter, cut into pieces
2/3 cup fat free half and half
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
In one bowl, combine strawberries, orange juice and 2 tablespoons of the sugar. Combine and set aside.
In another bowl, combine the 1/2 cup of sugar with the orange zest and mix together with your fingers. The mixture should smell fruity and delicious. Add the flour, baking powder and salt and whisk together.
Add the cold butter and cut the butter into the flour mixture using a pastry cutter until the butter is coarse crumbs. Add the half and half and stir together to form the dough. Add the strawberry mixture and fold together.
