Bake for 8-10 minutes.
Pro-tip: You want the cookies to just be set before taking them out of the oven. If the edges are golden brown, they have cooked for too long. You shouldn’t see too much browning along the edges (a light brown is okay).

Variations / Options / Add-ins

  • SALTED BUTTER: You can also use unsalted butter here, but I prefer the extra bit of salt to cut through the sweetness. 
  • STRAWBERRY SYRUP: This is a fun addition that increases the flavor, but if you find the cookie to be too sweet, you can remove this. 
  • LEMON JUICE: Lime juice is a great replacement here. Either fresh juice or juice from concentrate works fine. 
  • WHITE CHOCOLATE CHIPS: If you want to replace this with other chocolate chips, you certainly can do so. I love adding dark chocolate chips to counteract the sweetness of the cookies. 

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I store these cookies?

You can store these cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days. Put these in the freezer in order to keep them for a few months. These are very soft, crumbly cookies, so be very careful when storing them, as they will easily break. 

What do I do if my cookies turn out too flat?

Sometimes if the butter melts or gets too soft while you are preparing the cookie dough, your cookie will flatten too much as it bakes. Make sure that the butter you use is softened to room temperature, but has not started to melt. The best method I have found is to leave the butter on the counter for about 30 minutes to 1 hour before making the cookies. I would also use eggs and syrup that were in the refrigerator to keep the dough cooler. Chilling the dough can also help, but the texture of the cookie turns out a little differently. The best cookies are those that are immediately baked right after the dough is prepared.

  1. 5 stars
    I made these for Christmas. They were a HUGE hit, they were the first of my goodies to disappear! Will definitely make again, not just for Christmas!

  2. Is there a replacement for lemon juice? Any kind of citrus is a trigger for migraines so I can’t have any.

  3. 5 stars
    I substituted 2 medium chopped fresh strawberries for the syrup. These are pretty and slightly puffy cookies. We prefer them a bit more brown on the edges

  4. 3 stars
    They’re good but could be better. I mean I knew reading the recipe it wasn’t going to be some fantastic cookie but rather a very easy recipe that will satisfy the craving for something strawberry
