For the Icing:

  • 2 ounces cream cheese
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup hot milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Prepare the Cookie Dough:
    • Start by pulverizing the freeze-dried strawberries in a food processor until they become a fine powder.
    • In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened salted butter and granulated sugar until the mixture is light and fluffy. Beat in the egg and vanilla extract until well incorporated.
    • Gradually mix in the all-purpose flour, baking soda, and kosher salt, followed by the strawberry powder, until the dough comes together.
    • Fold in the strawberry jam, swirling it through the dough without completely mixing it in, to create a marbled effect.
  2. Bake the Cookies:
    • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
    • Scoop tablespoons of the cookie dough onto the prepared baking sheet, spacing them about 2 inches apart.
    • Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the edges start to turn golden. Remove from the oven and let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  3. Prepare the Icing:
    • In a medium bowl, beat the cream cheese until smooth. Gradually add the powdered sugar, beating until well combined.
    • Mix in the hot milk and vanilla extract, continuing to beat until the icing is smooth and has reached your desired consistency.
  4. Decorate the Cookies:
    • Once the cookies have cooled, use a spoon or a piping bag to drizzle the icing over the cookies. Let the icing set before serving.
