How to Make Strawberry Cake Mix Cookies

Just a few easy steps to make these cookies with only 10-minute prep.

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Place strawberry cake mix, eggs, oil, and vanilla into a large mixing bowl, and combine using a fork or hand mixer.
  • Using a cookie scoop, create dough balls with 1 tablespoon of the cookie dough and arrange on to the prepared baking pan lined with a silicone mat, about 2-inches apart.
  • Place the cookies into the oven for 10 minutes, or until they just begin to turn a light brown. Make sure not to overbake.
  • Take the cookies out of the oven and allow them to cool on the baking sheet, while you make the glaze.

Strawberry Lemon Glaze:

  • Place the strawberries and lemon juice into a food processor or blender and combine.
  • Combine the strawberry mixture and powdered sugar until smooth. If the glaze is too thin, you can add a bit more of the powdered sugar, and if it’s too thick, just add more juice or water.
  • Transfer the cookies to a wire rack and top with the strawberry glaze.
  • Top with more powdered sugar, if desired. Serve and Enjoy!

How To Store Strawberry Cake Mix Cookies

Storing cookies in an airtight container will keep them moist and fresh for a while. You can store these cookies in the fridge or at room temperature. The shelf life of the cookies will depend on where they are stored.
