Strawberry Shortcake Cookies

Is it Fall where you are?

Here in Southern California we've been having some crazy hot's definitely still summer!  So hot, that our oldest son, who's now in Kindergarten, hasn't been able to play on the playground at lunch due to the inclement weather policy kicking in (anything over 100 degrees).  This week we also had our first week of soccer....not too much fun in this kind of weather.   The kids were beet red and sweating by the end of it, and that was after trying to stay in the shade and taking lots of water breaks!

So since it's still summer.....I decided to put off jumping into Fall desserts and sticking with some summery ones.  We're still getting tons of delicious strawberries, and what could be better than a yummy strawberry shortcake?  How about a strawberry shortcake cookie?  A lot more portable and lot less messy!

These were a huge hit!  They really are like eating a strawberry shortcake.  They don't sit around too well though so I'd make them the day that you're planning on serving them.  Then just watch them disappear!

Check out Two Peas and Their Pod for the recipe......and Enjoy!

PS - Of course, as I'm writing this post, a thunderstorm came in and cooled the place down....probably down in the 80's now.....who-hoo!!

  10. It's still crazy hot in TX too (even though MomTrends is based in NYC, I write from Dallas). I can't wait for the fall to start so I can do a little more baking, these look so good!
