Making strawberry cookies from a cake mix is so incredibly easy; even the kids can mix and shape them. With just the mix along with baking soda, eggs, and oil, it creates a pretty darn good cookie recipe. Sure, from-scratch cookies are great when time is not an issue. But, sometimes, we need a quick and easy cookie recipe.

What Kind of Cake Mix is Best for Perfect Cake Mix Cookies?
I like to use Duncan Hines. The version without pudding in the mix is best! Pillsbury, Betty Crocker, and store brand will work too!

Tips for Making the Best Strawberry Cake Mix Cookies
Use parchment paper or a silicone baking liner for the Best Cake Mix Cookies. The layer keeps the cookies from sticking. It will also keep your cookies from browning.

Mix the cookie dough by hand with a spatula. There is no need for a hand mixer or a stand mixer. Mixing by hand is best. Over mixing the batter can make for a tough cookie.

Consider using red and white-colored M&M’s for these Strawberry Cake Mix Cookies. They would add tons of color too! Milk chocolate chips or even a dark chocolate chip would taste wonderful with the strawberry flavor.

Do not use fresh strawberries with this Strawberry Cake Mix Cookie recipe. Fruit will add additional liquid and would throw off the ratio of liquid to dry ingredients.

How to Make Strawberry Cake Mix Cookies

  1. Start with preheating your oven to 350 degrees. Then, line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the cake mix and the baking powder.
  4. Now, add the egg mixture to the cake mix mixture. Stir until no lumps are visible. Be careful not to over mix.Mixing strawberry cake mix cookie ingredients
  5. Add your mix-ins and fold them in.
  6. Form heaping tablespoon-sized balls and place them on prepared pan.

Bake for about 10 minutes. Watch the cookies closely. You will want to pull them from the oven before you see browning occurring. They may look a little underbaked but will continue to cook after removing.Unbaked Strawberry cookie on parchment paper

Easy Strawberry Cookies stacked How long do Cake Mix Cookies Last?
If stored in an air-tight container or zippered bag, the cookies will last for about a week. After that, they become a bit stale. So, if you need to keep them fresh for longer, consider keeping them in the freezer.

Can You Freeze Cake Mix Cookies?
Sure, if you prefer to make these cookies ahead of time, place them in an air-tight storage container or freezer bag after they have cooled. After frozen, they should last for a few weeks.
