Strawberry Cake Mix Cookies Recipe

Yield: 24 Cookies

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 8-10 minutes

Total Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients for Strawberry Cake Mix Cookies

ingredients for strawberry cake mix cookie recipe

Cookies:

1 box strawberry cake mix – 15.25-ounce

⅓ cup vegetable oil

2 eggs 

Glaze:

1 cup confectioners sugar

4-6 Tablespoons of milk

How to Make Strawberry Cake Mix Cookies

  • First, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a 9×11 baking sheet by lining it with parchment paper and set it aside. 
  • In a large bowl, use an electric or stand mixer at low speed to combine the strawberry cake mix, vegetable oil, and eggs.
  • Use a medium-sized cookie scoop to measure the batter and place each cookie dough dollop onto the baking sheet, spaced evenly.
  • Cook for 8-10 minutes or until the surface of the cookie begins to crack and the edges begin to turn golden brown. 
  • Remove from the oven and place them on a cooling rack. While the cookies are cooling, start to prepare the glaze by whisking together the confectioner’s sugar and milk.
  • Use a piping bag or spoon to drizzle the cooled cookies with the glaze. Allow the glaze to set before serving.

Tips and Tricks for Making Strawberry Cake Mix Cookies

  1. Use a nice cookie scoop! I really like the OXO Good Grips Medium Cookie Scoop. This will make for perfectly even and precise cookies. 
  2. If you want a nice, thick, and defined stripe of glaze on your cookie, use 4 Tablespoons of milk. If you use 6 Tablespoons the glaze will be a lot thinner and it will kind of blend in with the cookie.
  3. Allow the cookies to cool before removing them from the parchment. Because they are made from a cake mix, they are a little softer and delicate when warm.
  4. Remove the cookies from the oven at 10 minutes max. They shouldn’t need to cook any more than that unless you used a larger scoop.
  5. Think outside the box! You can add a lot of different mix-ins to this recipe or even change the frosting if you want. You could try buttermilk or chocolate frosting and get delicious results.

What Mix-Ins Would Strawberry cookies?

The options are endless with this recipe! You could add white chocolate chips, M&Ms, or dark chocolate chips instead of the glaze. My kids’ favorite topping is sprinkles. I try to keep all different colors and holidays on hand to make it fun!

Or you could even roll each dollop of cookie dough in powdered sugar before baking. The good thing about this strawberry cake mix cookie recipe is that it’s simple and adaptable. Add what you think would be good and top it whatever you want!

Do I really need a cookie scoop?

For years I thought that getting a cookie scoop would be a waste. I spent so much time using a spoon to measure out the dough onto a baking sheet.

I finally was gifted a cookie scoop for my birthday last year and my life has changed! This cookie scoop is my favorite! It’s durable and easy to clean.

A cookie scoop makes the process so much cleaner and faster! Plus my cookies look almost perfect every time! I highly recommend using a cookie scoop. 

How do I store my strawberry cake mix cookies?

Put your cookies in an airtight container or a cookie jar. They will keep for about a week to a week in a half.

If you want your cookies to stay soft you can put a moisture-rich substance in the jar/container such as an apple or a slice of bread. 

Does it matter what kind of cake mix I use?

If you have a favorite cake mix brand, you are safe to stay with that for this recipe. I like to use the Duncan Hines Signature Moist Cake Mix, but any brand will do.

    These are so pretty! Okay, so we have two girls and four boys. I’m wondering if I make pink cookies, what are the chances the boys will stay out of them and leave them for us girls, lol?
