cookie carnival :: june means strawberries!

hey everyone! happy June!

i will have the round-up for May posted as soon as i can, but until then, here is the recipe for the June cookie.

i am beyond excited for strawberry season. the jam! the pies! the smoothies! it's a strawberry frenzy around here for much of the month, so i felt i had to find a strawberry cookie recipe.

leave it to martha to come through with that! we'll be baking STRAWBERRY-SHORTCAKE COOKIES!

i know not all of you are martha's biggest fans, but i hope you'll play along anyway. we had remarkably low attendance last month. maybe the macaroon was too scary?

this recipe is pretty simple. or so it sounds, anyway. but sometimes--in fact most of the time--simple is delicious, so i hope you will all give it a try! we now have 170 people signed up to be part of the carnival. it would be great if you all participated. of course that would mean the round-up would take a whole lot longer to do!

enjoy strawberry season..... a.pdf of the recipe is here for the downloading.

please email me your link and photo by 7pm on JUNE 30th to be included!

Strawberry cookie ~ how interesting! I cannot wait to try them.

Sorry about not posting last month's recipe - I actually baked the macaroon portion TWICE. The first time they "semi-turned out" but we ate the macaroons before they could be assembled with the chocolate ganache. The second time, well, they just flopped.

What a fun recipe. I look forward to making these strawberry shortcake cookies.

Carol-- Sanding sugar is large crystals of sugar that doesn't melt when sprinkled on top of cookies and other baked goods. It kind of sparkles. You might be able to find it where you would buy cake decorating supplies.

Oh my... these sound AMAZING!!!

Last month was crazy on this end, so this month it looks like it'll be a macaroon AND a strawberry shortcake cookie month :) (Not that I'm complaining :))

Wow, that many Cookie Carnival bakers?! That's great. The Macarons were a bit scary for me, but these look wonderful. And strawberries just went on sale!

These sound kind of like a cookie sized scone. Looks like fun.
