These fairly large cookies baked with dried strawberries from my recent holiday up in the Cameron Highlands, are crispy at the sides and slightly soft and chewy in the centre. These will come in handy as a gift for family and friends during the coming festive season. If you prefer the cookies to be crunchy, just bake them a little longer, say about 5 mins. Also, you can substitute the dried strawberries with other dried fruits that you have at hand.
