Summer Strawberry Cookies

Strawberry and Lemon Cookies
Gluten Free and Vegan , Nut and Coconut Free

Well we are all dreaming of the arrival of summer and it won’t be long !!

So I’m hopping on the Strawberry Bus to start it off

On saying that these Cookies can be enjoyed anytime of year , and with homegrown in season strawberries it can only get better

As with my cookies so far they are no chill. I’m not adverse to a chill cookie , but for me when I want a cookie I want it now …..not in 2 hours later

These ones give you a bite of fruit in every bite and my favourite is always a softer cookie , maybe its years of bad gluten free hard offerings that have made me that way

Soft at one point was never an option everything even commercially was as hard as the hobs of hell !!!

So this is a cross between shortbread and a scone so for me that is absolutely perfect and my type of heaven

You can have these made and enjoyed in less than an hour and that makes it one of my quickest recipes to date ……. yey you’ve got the rest of the day to enjoy yourself and come back to a delicious cookie and a cuppa when you’ve finished

And yes to me these are a cookie and not a British biscuit there’s too much sugar in them 😜😜😜

So without anymore waffling off we go ( and sorry for the large working pics WordPress has decided to update and currently I can’t work out how to scale the dam things down !!!! Why cant folk just leave the things ALONE !! )

You Know You Want TOO !!!!

  1. I am not a fan of strawberries, and would have to substitute them for blueberries, but they look so divine. I honestly cannot wait for Monday to get some missing ingredientes and start baking them.
