Glazed Strawberry Cookies
Total TimePrep: 45 min. + chilling Bake: 10 min./batch + cooling
I am not a novice baker, but I really struggled with these cookies. The first batch I let sit in the fridge for 30mins before I baked them for 10mins at 375 and they came out as one giant flat cookie conglomeration. I let them cool a bit and they came off the baking sheet in crumbles. I waited for 2 days before trying the rest of the dough, thinking that maybe the butter needed to be cooler. This batch came out the same way as the first. The third group of cookies I made as thin as I dared and baked for only 6 minutes. They still spread out a ton but at least I got them off the pan and they did not cook like one giant cookie mess. Finally I gave up and just baked the dough without the jelly. All this was made with the same dough so best I can say now is that either I made a mistake with the ingredients or this cookies are just intended to be made very precisely. If you make these, keep an eye on them so that they just barely turn brown on the edges, which in my experience was around 6mins and not nearly 10-12 and keep them very spaced out and use very minimal jelly. I'd love know know what I did wrong, because the crumbley bits are delicious, but I don't think I'll dare to make them again.
Delicious, it tastes great
