  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • In a small bowl, mix flour, baking soda and salt.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, add butter, sugar and vanilla and beat on medium speed until well blended. Beat in egg, mixing well. Add flour mixture and beat slowly to incorporate, then faster to blend well. Stir in chocolate chips and freeze-dried strawberries.
  • Drop batter in heaping tablespoon portions about 2” apart on parchment-lined baking sheets.
