Recipe by Junia Sonier
"We were given a lot of strawberries and I had to figure out what to do with them so they didn't go bad. So I came up with this recipe. I hope everyone likes it as much as my kids did. I prefer fresh strawberries over strawberry extract because it gives it a more fruitful flavor. But the extract is good as well. You decide."

red colored sugar
The recipe is sooo good! And unlike some people, I took the liberty of changing that 1/2 cup of salt to 1/2 tsp of salt instead of leaving a bad review...definitely uncalled for.
These cookies were sweet, but I did not think they had enough strawberry to them. I upped the puree to 5 tbsp.'s as one reviewer said they increased it to, but still seemed very bland.
This was a very good recipe. I used two tablespoons more puree however, in the hopes that it would impart sufficient strawberry flavor. Bang.
This was the best cookie ever!
I used 1/2 tsp of salt as suggested, and it had the perfect sweet salty combo. It reminds me of cookies I bought from the bakery when I was younger... I ate the whole dozen in a day
These were the Bomb!I used strawberry jam in mine and wow so very good.This is an awesome recipe and it went in my recipe book.My daughter hates everything cakes and cookies but i must say she loved these.Thank you so much for this recipe
Thank you everyone for your reviews. I'm not sure what you are talking about with the 1/2 cup of salt because it says 1/2 teaspoon maybe you looked at the sugar by mistake. I'm glad that most of you liked it and hope more people try it and like it as well.
Admittedly, I was a little skeptical when my 7 year old decided he wanted to make strawberry cookies. I imagined a very artificial tasting end result. I was so pleased to find this recipe using fresh strawberries. I was still skeptical as baking with fresh fruit does change it's flavor. I am so pleased with how they turned out! We used frozen strawberries instead of fresh and it was fine. The strawberry taste is subtle but true; not overpowering at all. In fact, I think I will add a little extra purée the next time we make these. This recipe is a keeper!
I've made these as written and with 5T of strawberry puree. Both are very good. Obviously, increasing the puree gave a stronger strawberry flavor. These were popular with my kids and at a party I brought them to. I used a scant half teaspoon of salt and pureed frozen strawberries.
