These tender cookies are made with cream and studded with sweet strawberries for a portable version of a classic dessert.
From Martha Stewart Living, June 2009
These simple cookies are delectable topped with vanilla whipped cream and macerated strawberries. Pour heavy cream into a bowl and let chill in the fridge for about 30 minutes. Whip with a whisk until soft peaks form, add sugar to your level of preferred sweetness and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract (lemon zest is also delicious). Leave as is or whip until stiff peaks form.
Makes about 3 dozen cookies
