A few days ago, my good friend Alex came to my place for „only five minutes“!
“Vera, I don’t have much time to chat. I just came by to leave you these strawberries which I picked for Marco”, he said while giving me a bowl of beautiful strawberries which smelled through the whole house the moment he brought them.

Drop heaping tablespoon of batter onto pan leaving an inch space between.
Set the cookies in the refrigerator for 5-10 minutes before baking.
