How to Make Strawberry Cake Mix Cookies
To make strawberry cookies from a cake mix, you’ll obviously need a strawberry cake mix. THIS is my favorite and the one I use most often. I have tried several brands, but always seem to find my way back for flavor and consistency.
If you would prefer not to use a strawberry cake mix, you can also use a vanilla cake mix and add a few drops of strawberry flavoring like THIS until you get a flavor and color you’re content with. It’s best to add strawberry flavoring 1/2 tsp at a time so you don’t accidentally use too much.
What Kind of Chocolate Can I Add to Strawberry Cake Mix Cookies?
On top of the strawberry goodness, these white chocolate chip strawberry cake mix cookies are filled with yummy white chocolate chips.
If white chocolate isn’t your thing, you can easily swap them out for semi-sweet chocolate chips or even milk chocolate chips.
If you would prefer not to add chocolate at all, that’s perfectly okay too! You can absolutely still have an amazing cookie without the chocolate!
How to Freeze Cake Mix Cookies
These strawberry cake mix cookies can be frozen for later date. You can either bake as directed and freeze or you can freezer the pre-baked batter.
To freeze the cake mix cookies batter, simply make as directed before baking. Wrap the cookie dough tightly in plastic wrap then place in a freezer bag. Freeze up to 3-months and be sure to fully thaw before baking.
You can also freeze dough balls before baking. To do so, use a cookie scoop and place dough on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Place the sheet in the freezer until the cookie batter is frozen. Place dough balls in a freezer bag.
To freeze baked cookies, bake as directed and allow to cool completely. Line an air tight food storage container with a single layer of cookies. Top with parchment paper between layers. Bring the cookies to room temperature before eating for the best flavor.
