Do I need to use fresh strawberries for this recipe? Yes, it’s best to use fresh strawberries when preparing the sweet glaze that goes on top of the cookies. If you don’t have fresh strawberries, you can use frozen ones, but you’ll need to use a clean paper towel to absorb the excess moisture beforehand.
How long will it take to make these cookies? It will take around 35 minutes from start to finish, which includes time spent preparing the dough, baking the cookies, and adding the sweet glaze on top as a finishing touch.
Do I add glaze to the cookies immediately? No, remove the cookies from the oven and allow them to cool for at least five minutes while you work on preparing the glaze before you add it on top of the sugar cookies.
Sugar Cookie Tips and Suggestions
If you feel like your glaze is too thick, you can make it thinner by adding a bit of water or lemon juice to the mixture.
When your glaze is a bit too thin and runny, add some powdered sugar to it to make it thicker.
Be sure to simmer your glaze on a low setting. Don’t have the flame up too high or your glaze can burn and get ruined before you’ve had a chance to use it on your sugar cookies.
After your glaze hardens on your cookies, which typically takes a few minutes at most, you can dust them with a light coating of powdered sugar as an added touch. It’s an optional step that adds something extra to these baked goodies.
How to Store the Sugar Cookies with Strawberry Glaze
Place parchment paper in a large plastic or glass food storage container and line your cookies in a row.
Grab a separate sheet of parchment paper, cover the first row of cookies, and then add more cookies on top. Use the parchment paper to keep the cookie from getting stuck to one another when you’ve stored them.
Do I need to keep them in the fridge?
You don’t need to keep them in the fridge. Instead, place them on a kitchen countertop or any other spot away from heat. Be sure to serve and enjoy within a few days to have these cookies while they’re tastiest.
