Strawberry Chocolate Chip Shortbread Cookies

IMG_0186

My friend Anja made these cookies for Valentine’s Day and posted them on her blog Cakeworthy.com and we just had to make them vegan. They are so easy even my son and husband got in on the cookie action. These are definitely in the Valentine’s Day repertoire going forward.

1.5 oz. freeze dried strawberries
2 1/3 cup flour
3/4 cup powdered sugar
3 sticks of Earth Balance
1 cup mini vegan chocolate chips

Process the strawberries into a powder in the food processor.

Place the strawberry powder into a mixing bowl (I used my KitchenAid Artisan mixer.) Add rest of the ingredients and mix on low until a dough forms.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Make sure it fits flat in the freezer.

Flour a clean surface and a rolling pin. Roll out the dough as thinly as possible. Using a heart shaped (or other shape) cookie cutter, cut out the cookies and place on the baking sheet.

Freeze for 15 minutes (which will prevent the cookies from spreading.)

Pre-heat oven to 350.

Bake 17 to 20 minutes or until the edges brown very slightly. Let cool. Enjoy!
