Strawberry Cookies

3 cups flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

1 cup butter

1¼ cups sugar

3 eggs

3 tablespoons strawberry preserves

Juice and zest of 1 lemon

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

8 drops red food coloring

⅔ cup finely chopped strawberries

Preheat oven to 375° F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt and set aside. In a large bowl, mix butter and sugar on medium-high speed until lightened in color, about 3 minutes. Add eggs one at a time, mixing well after each one. Add the strawberry preserves, lemon juice and zest, vanilla extract and red food coloring and mix until incorporated. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and mix once more. With the mixer on low, begin adding the dry ingredients a little at a time until everything is added and blended. Add the strawberries and mix on low until incorporated. Scoop out dough by generous tablespoons and put on prepared baking sheet, spacing about an inch apart. Bake for 10-12 minutes, then cool on a wire rack before serving.
