These cookies are a little bit of heaven, simply perfect. The light brown sugar enhances the flavour of strawberries and the cookie is sweet on the correct amount. You have to try it, that's all I have to say. :)
1 cup of flour
3 tbsp light brown sugar
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp water
1 tsp vanilla extract
80g strawberries cut in small cubes
2 tbsp icing sugar to sprinkle
1 - Combine the flour, salt and two tbsp of sugar on a food processor
2 - Add the spread and pulse until crumbs begin to form
3 - Pour the water and vanilla and pulse a bit more to bring the dough together and let it rest for 15 minutes
4 - Mix the strawberries with the rest of the sugar and set aside
5 - On a floured surface roll the dough out to a very thin 1/16th inch thickness and cut into small squares. I used a small plastic food container upside down.
6 - Lay a tsp of the strawberry mixture in the middle of each square the fold two corners of the pastry together and press using your finger
7 - Bake it in a preheated over at 180c for 15 minutes
8 - Sprinkle the icing sugar on top of the cookies while still hot.
It is perfect with tea or coffee!!
