Greek yogurt replaces milk and eggs in strawberry shortcake cookies. Bits of fresh strawberry baked into the sweet morsels taste like little bursts of summer.

Ingredients

  • 1

    cup strawberries, diced

  • 2

    teaspoons lemon juice

  • 2

    cups plus 2 tablespoons all purpose flour, divided

  • 1

    cup plus 1 1/2 tablespoons granulated sugar, divided

  • 2

    teaspoons baking powder

  • 1/4

    teaspoon baking soda

  • 1/4

    teaspoon salt

  • 6

    tablespoons cold butter, cut into small cubes

  • 1/2

    cup nonfat Greek yogurt

  • 1

    teaspoon vanilla extract

  • Zest of 1 lemon

  • Vanilla glaze:

  • 1

    cup powdered sugar, sifted

  • 2

    tablespoons milk

  • 1 1/2

    teaspoons vanilla extract

Directions

Preheat oven to 375°F. Place strawberries, lemon juice, 2 tablespoons flour, and 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar into a small mixing bowl and toss together until well coated. Place in refrigerator and set aside. In a medium mixing bowl, sift together the remaining flour, remaining sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Cut in the butter until a fine/even, grainy texture forms. Stir in the Greek yogurt and vanilla and mix until just combined. Fold in the strawberry mixture and lemon zest and mix until well combined. Line a baking sheet with parchment and spoon on 2 tablespoons of dough at a time, about 1 inch apart. Bake 17 to 20 minutes or until the cookies have barely started to brown on top. Remove from the oven and transfer cookies onto a cooling rack and allow to cool completely. While the cookies cool, make the glaze. Place the sugar, milk and vanilla into a small bowl and gently stir together with a fork until no lumps remain. Drizzle glaze over cookies and serve or allow to set, about 30 minutes, before serving.
