These Cream Cheese Strawberry Cookies are out of these world. The cream cheese and mascarpone come together beautifully to pair with the sweet strawberries in these satisfying and rich cookies. If you're a fan of strawberry shortcake in the summer time with a big dollop of whipped cream on the top, then these cookies are definitely ones you should try. Just be sure to save some for yourself! These cookies will fly off the plate in no time.

From the Chef: The key to making this dessert simply irresistible lies in the fresh strawberries and in soaking them in sweet fresh juice. This process is called macerating, and it brings out the natural sweetness in the fruit. They add that extra pop of flavor that reminds everyone of summer sunshine.

For whatever reason, I was expecting bright pink, summery cookies from the strawberries. But, this is a pleasant surprise! These cookies would work well for any season and are actually very elegant. They could be dressed up at a more formal event or just a nice casual treat to make for yourself! It would be great to substitute in other berries too!
