  • 4 oz cream cheese room temperature

  • Add in sugar and egg.
  • Add in flour.
  • Sprinkle the baking powder, salt and baking soda over the flour.
  • Use a rubber spatula to work in the flour until a dough forms.
  • fold in chocolate chips and frozen strawberries.
  • Using a mini cookie scoop, scoop out the cookie dough and place on prepared baking sheet.
  • Press pieces of frozen strawberries into the cookies (this will make the cookies look prettier when they are done with bits of strawberries peeping out)
  • Bake for about 10 minutes.
  • Transfer cookies to a cooling rack.
  • Store in airtight container



I prefer using frozen strawberries in this recipe to help maintain the bright red color.
