How to Make Strawberry Cake Mix Cookies

Making these cookies couldn’t be easier!

  1. Preheat the oven. Preheat the oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Mix the ingredients. In a large bowl, beat together the eggs and vegetable oil. Mix in the strawberry cake mix and baking powder until a soft dough forms.
  3. Chill the dough. If the dough feels too sticky, chill it in the refrigerator for 15-30 minutes.
  4. Form the cookies. Scoop rounded tablespoons of dough and roll into balls. Place on the prepared baking sheet about 2 inches apart.
  5. Bake. Bake the cookies for 9-11 minutes until the edges are set.
  6. Cool. Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 2-3 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
  7. Decorate (optional). Once cooled, dip half of each cookie in melted white chocolate and add sprinkles. Allow the chocolate to set before serving.

Tips for the Best Strawberry Cake Mix Cookies

These cookies are foolproof, but these tips take them over the top.

  • Don’t overbake! Bake the cookies for 9-11 minutes until the edges are set. The centers may look slightly underbaked, but they will continue to set as they cool. Overbaking will result in dry, crumbly cookies.
  • Have fun with mix-ins. Fold in white chocolate chips, chopped nuts, or sprinkles for extra flavor and texture.
  • Create crinkle cookies. Roll the dough balls in granulated sugar before baking for a crinkle cookie effect.
  • Make ‘em pretty. Once cooled, dip half of each cookie in melted white chocolate. Then, add sprinkles for a fun, festive touch.
  • Make ‘em fancy with frosting. Spread a tasty buttercream frosting on top for additional sweetness.
  • Try a fun twist. Try using different cake mix flavors, such as lemon, chocolate, or Funfetti. Add a teaspoon of lemon or orange zest to the strawberry dough for a citrusy twist.

How to Store

These cookies are perfect for making ahead, and they’re also easy to store!

To Make Ahead: The cookie dough can be made in advance. Store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days or freezer for up to 2 months. Thaw frozen dough in the fridge before baking.

To Store: Keep the cooled cookies in an air-tight container at room temperature for up to 1 week. For longer storage, place in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.

To Freeze: Place the cooled cookies in a freezer-safe container or bag. Store them in the freezer for up to 2-3 months. Thaw at room temperature before enjoying.
