I adore cookies almost as much as I adore fresh strawberries. I miss the fresh tastes of summer berries during these dark winter months. I wanted to create a cookie with a fresh strawberry filling. I also wanted to create a cookie that would be easy to make as clean eating fresh strawberry cookies with just a couple of tweaks to the ingredients.

I made these chocolate dipped fresh strawberry cookies with just 5 ingredients. These cookies are perfect for any celebration, such as Valentine’s Day, wedding parties, engagement parties, or any party. It all starts with the cookie shell from my favorite Pecan Tassie Cookies.

One of my favorite cookies has always been Pecan Tassies. And they’re so adorable because they’re little bite-sized pie shaped cookies. As much as I love all kinds of cookies, sometimes I want a cookie with a fresh fruit flavor. I took the delicious cookie shell and filled it with chocolate drizzled fresh strawberries

These fresh strawberry cookies are the perfect marriage of chocolate drizzled strawberries and a shortbread cookie. They’re heavenly and decadent and fresh tasting. If you like fruit cookies, you should also try my Oatmeal Blueberry Cookies.

If you want to make a clean eating version, use clean eating dark chocolate in place of the semi-sweet and white chocolate chips. Chocolate covered strawberries are the definition of a decadent treat. I wanted that flavor in this cookie, but with less sugar. Drizzling the chocolate gives you that delicious chocolate and strawberry combo while reducing the amount of chocolate used.

    1. They’re best if made the same day, Robyn. What you can do is make the shells the day before and then just add the strawberries and chocolate drizzle the day of.
