Summer is coming to an end, my friends! These strawberry chocolate chip cookies along with my blueberry yuzu popsicles and lemon lavender cookies will close out my summer 2021 recipes. Fall and winter are my favorite seasons, so I’m super excited to bring you fun, cozy recipes during the cooler months.
Strawberries and chocolate pair so well together. You can’t mess up the combination! Even the pickiest of eaters enjoy the strawberry/chocolate combo so you can trust that these fluffy cookies will be true crowd-pleasers.
*As a note, this is a reduced sugar recipe. The cookies are not going to be overly sweet. If you prefer really sweet cookies, add more sugar as you see fit*
I love LOVE strawberry season. In a lot of places, strawberry season is 9 or 10 months out of the year but in the Deep South, you’re looking at 3 to 4 good strawberry months if you’re lucky. The harvest often starts in April and goes through early June. After that, you can still find strawberries in the store but not locally grown. Frozen strawberries are great in smoothies, but I do not like baking with frozen – definitely prefer fresh!
