Strawberry season is in full effect, y’all! And we see you, low-key hoarding those half-flats each week. We know this queen of berries is especially delicious fresh and straight from the pint and transformed into ruby-hued jam but here in the height of the strawberry season, you might be hankering for a new berry good recipe. Keeping it simple and streamlined, An Italian in My Kitchen offers up this easy strawberry cookie recipe. So simple, in fact, the kiddos could give it a whirl the week whilst they’re home on Mardi Gras break!
