Preparation / Cooking Time: 8-11 minutes


1 cup of butter, softened
3/4 cup of sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
2 3/4 cup of all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cream or tartar
3/4 (or more, or less) cups of chopped strawberries


In a large bowl, mix the butter and sugar together, until fluffy. When fluffy, mix in strawberries. Add egg and beat well, then mix vanilla extract. In a seprate bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and cream of tartar. Add flour mixture to butter mixture, until thoroughly combined. Divide dough into two equal portions, then flatten each into a disk. Cover each disk in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 2 to 3 hours, or until the dough is firm enough to work with. If it becomes too firm, soften in a room for 5 minutes. Preheat oven to 350. On a lightly floured board roll out dough, until it is about 1/3 inch thick.
Cut out cookies with cookie cutter. Using a spatula, carefully move the cookies onto a cookie sheet, leaving about 2 inches between them. Bake for about 8 to 11 minutes, or until gold along the edges.
Remove cookie sheet from oven, and let them cool for 4 minutes. Make the other cookies with the remaining disk of dough. Serves: 24
