Corn & Strawberry Sugar Cookies

Happy Summer, friends! Well, I know it’s not officially “Summer” yet, but it sure is starting to feel like it here in Denver! I haven’t been posting recipes as much as I normally do, and I’m sorry for that. I am nearing the end of my pregnancy and between that and working my day job, I just feel I need a little more rest these days! I am officially 8 months pregnant this week, and let me tell you, I am ready for this baby to come out! He’s moving and shaking all day long and into the night, so it’s been difficult for my to get comfortable. I can’t complain too much though. Baby boy Kline is growing along perfectly healthy and I’m truly thankful for that. We’ve finished out dinosaur-themed nursery, fitted with a closet organizer and cutsie shelves. It’s easily the nicest and most decorated room in the house now. 

These corn and strawberry sugar cookies have been on my mind for weeks to create. There’s something about the salty sweet corn and tart and sweet strawberry combination that makes you salivate just thinking of them. For this cookie, I’ve combined 2 similar sugar cookie doughs into a 1-ounce cookie scoop. If you don’t have a cookie scoop, spooning 1 Tbsp. of each dough will do. The dough is then rolled into granulated sugar and baked. These cookies come out a little crispy on the sides and tender and soft in the middle- just how I like them. 

Freeze dried strawberry powder is easily found on amazon here… but you can also blend up some freeze dried strawberries if you cannot find the powder.

Hope everyone is staying cool in the summer heat! I know I’ll be counting on my AC unit to help me wait for the arrival of my baby! Happy baking, friends.
