Strawberry White Clover Cookies

As I was pulling weeds from the strawberry patch, it occurred to me that the two would be tasty together in some dessert. These strawberry white clover cookies are soft, slightly sweet and full of earthy flavor.

White clover is naturally sweet and has some hints of vanilla and fruity flavor, which I believed would work well with fresh strawberries. The flavor is delicate but does complement the berries delightfully.

For this recipe, simply harvest the flower heads of white clover. Wash them to get rid of any bugs or dirt. Give those heads a rough chop for the cookie batter.

If you’re new to baking with weeds and herbs, this is a great and easy way to get started.

Don’t have any white clover? Consider substituting red clover or other edible flower (like rose petals) instead.

White clover is very tasty when I was a little girl I used to sit in front yard and eat small amounts of this clover never knew why I was attracted to it but I am learning a lot about this wonderful edible flower Sherry

Clover is a nitrogen fixing "weed" that complements growing as a cover crop. It's no wonder you have "weeds" everywhere but your strawberries are fantastic - sounds like you've got a great naturally balanced growing environment!

Have you ever considered Weeder Geese for the strawberry patch. You can put them out when the berries arent ripe.
