  6. Refrigerate sheet of dough 5-7 minutes.
  7. Cut out cookies from dough using cookie cutter of your choice (any size).
  8. Transfer cookies on parchment paper to a large baking sheet. Bake in the middle rack of oven for 11-12 minutes.
  9. Allow cookies to cool before touching them/removing from cookie sheet, or they will break apart.
  10. Once completely cooled, ice and decorate as desired.

Topping (optional icing and garnish)

  1. **In a stand mixer or food processor, combine palm shortening with tapioca starch, maple syrup, vanilla extract and pinch of sea salt. Whisk or pulse until combined.***
  2. Use a spoon or ice cream scoop to add a dollop of icing to each cookie and spread lightly. 
  3. Add finely chopped fresh strawberries and decorate as desired. 


*Ensure not to roll out your cookie dough too thin or the cookies will crack. 

**Or use a handheld mixer, or a regular whisk or spatula. Ensure ingredients are thoroughly incorporated. 

***If making the vanilla icing in advance, store it in the fridge and allow to come to room temperature before whisking it once more before frosting the cookies.
