Easy Strawberry Cookies

And when I say easy, I mean *easy*. Start to finish to prepare the batter – 5 minutes. No joke. There’s a lady at the Clintonville Farmer’s Market that makes these, and they’re delicious. Not good for you or chock full of natural ingredients, but tasty. Kids would love these. I wonder if these would be just as good with other flavors of cake mix?

  1. Like your blog especially the black forest cake recipe.

  2. I hanker after these every single week, and I can’t believe there are no actual berries in them. Thank you!

  3. i first started making cake mix cookies a couple years ago after seeing the recipe on the side. They’re great! the perfect base for anything your mind can imagine and the texture is always perfect.

    i think i might have to whip some of these up today! thanks!

  4. Great! I’ve been looking for an easy strawberry cookie! I’m going to add white chocolate chips and see how it comes out.


  5. I made this recipe without the coconut & chopped nuts. I wouldnt recommend it! It must need these ingredients b/c the cookies tasted like a burnt grease ball without them. They were pretty though.

  6. Have you tried the cookies with coconut and chocolate chips?

  7. I tried these with almond slivers and white chocolate chips. Everyone loved them :D

  8. A thought about the strawberry cookies, how about adding white chocolate chips!!! Oooo!

  9. I saw a similar recipe for strawberry cookies that said to add egg and (get this) a tub of whip topping. Any idea how that would turn out?

  10. I actually tried that with this recipe. It can be a bit too sweet, but still delicious.

  11. i have done the whipped topping version and the cookies were yummy and soft but it is a bit of a sticky mess getting together and on the pan.
