Tips for making Cake Mix Cookies:

  • Don’t over cook the cookies. I made this mistake a few times! I like these a little bit gooey on the inside and slightly browned on the outside. When you see the pink begin to brown, get them out of the oven stat!
  • Add more white chocolate chips after you bake. That’s right, this is the oldest blogger food pic trick in the book! Once you take the cookies out of the oven and place them on  a cooling rack, add more fresh white chocolate chips to the top.

  • ▢1 box Strawberry Cake Mix
  • ▢1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ▢2 eggs
  • ▢1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • ▢1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • ▢1 cup white chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 350F
  • Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine cake mix and baking powder. In a separate smaller bowl, whisk together eggs, oil, and vanilla by hand. Whisk until well combined.
  • Pour egg mixture into bowl with cake mix and stir with a spoon until a dough forms. Be sure to fully combine. Mix in the white chocolate chips.
  • Using a small ice cream scoop, drop rounded balls of the dough onto your baking sheet. These cookies flatten out quite a bit, so make sure the balls are taller than they are wide, and give them quite a bit of space between each cookie.
  • Bake for 9-10 minutes. Do not let them brown in the oven. They will appear slightly undercooked, but that is a good thing. They will firm up and flatten as they cool. When you take them out, you can add a couple more white chocolate chips to the top to make them look pretty (this is a little food blogger trick!)
  • Allow to cool for at least 10 minutes. Enjoy!

Chewy Strawberry Sugar Cookies

We were given a lot of strawberries and I had to figure out what to do with them so they didn’t go bad. So I came up with this recipe. I hope everyone likes it as much as my kids did. I prefer fresh strawberries over strawberry extract because it gives it a more fruitful flavor. But the extract is good as well. You decide.

MIX. Stir the cake mix, oil and eggs together until combined. The dough is sticky, so I like to refrigerate it for 15-20 minutes if I have the time. It makes it easier to work with once it’s chilled.

BAKE. Scoop the dough onto a lined baking sheet, then bake at 350°F for 9 to 11 minutes until cookies are set (but not brown). Let them sit on the pan for a couple of minutes, then move to a cooling rack.

DIP. Then get to dipping once the cookies have cooled completely. Melt the white chocolate in the microwave until smooth, then dip half of each cookie in the chocolate. Lay them onto wax paper and immediately add sprinkles while the chocolate is still wet.

  • The white chocolate is optional – you could leave it off if preferred.
  • I used white melting wafers for dipping, but white chocolate chips work great too. The chips also taste great folded into the dough.
  • You could even use milk or dark chocolate instead of white.
  • To make sweeter, roll the dough balls into granulated sugar before baking.
  • A classic buttercream would taste great on top of these strawberry cookies as well.
