Pinspiration in the Kitchen- Strawberry Shortcake Cookies

It is that time of the year when daydreams about summer inspired desserts begin to invade my thoughts.  On one of these such occasions, I decided to look up strawberry infused recipes and began happily pinning pink hued confections & sweet treats one after another onto my Pinterest boards.  It also just so happened that strawberries were on sale at my local grocery store that same week. ;)  I stumbled upon a recipe for Strawberry Shortcake cookies from Martha Stewart-

Strawberries in cookies?  At first I was little skeptical, but the idea intrigued me.  

These cookies turned out absolutely delicious!  The cookies were soft and sweet and tasted just like strawberry shortcake minus the whipped cream.  I sprinkled them with sparkling sugar before baking, and they turned out looking so pretty that I wrapped up some for my mother and my mother-in-law for Mother's Day.  You do need to eat these quickly- they only stay good for about 2 days tops.  Not that it would be a problem to inhale these all in one day. ;)  Storing them in the fridge would extend their shelf life by a day or two.

And yeah, this may have happened with some of the cookies...
