Strawberry Cookies from Cake Mix

There’s just something about making quick and easy cookies, even for the most seasoned of bakers. Cake mix cookies in general will always be a favorite that give you the taste of homemade cookies, without the mess or hassle of a fully handmade cookie.

These Strawberry Cake Mix Cookies are the perfect cookie with a hint of fruitiness and chewiness of your favorite soft cookie. The delicious strawberry flavor is subtle and almost reminds me of the flavor of Fruity Pebbles or freeze dried strawberries that is just so delicious.

The white chocolate chips add a sweetness, creaminess, and bite to the cookie that is really complimentary to the strawberry flavor. If those aren’t for you, definitely leave those out!

If you’re a fan of strawberry in desserts, these Strawberry Yogurt PopsiclesStrawberry Shortcake, and Fruit Pizza are great options too!

Form Cookie Dough Balls: Roll the mixture into 1″ balls, using an ice cream scooper for uniform size.

Tips and Tricks

  • For easy cleanup, set up a baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone mat.
  • Customize your cookies by leaving out the white chocolate chips or adding chopped nuts for extra crunch.
  • These batch of cookies are a light pink color, so if you’re looking for a bright pink color, add in some food dye.


Experiment with different flavored chips such as dark chocolate, butterscotch, or even peanut butter.

Store cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a week. For longer storage, freeze in a single layer and then transfer to a freezer bag.

To freeze, place cookies in a single layer on a baking sheet once they are cooled completely and freeze until solid. Transfer to a freezer safe bag or freezer-safe container, separating layers with parchment paper. Reheat in a preheated oven at 350°F for 5-7 minutes.


Can I make Strawberry Cake Mix Cookies ahead of time?

Absolutely! Prepare the dough and refrigerate for up to 24 hours before baking for enhanced flavor.

Can I use a different flavor of cake mix for these cookies? 

You can make cake mix cookies with other flavors like Funfetti or chocolate. You can also use a generic white box of cake mix and add in extracts like vanilla extract or these Peppermint Crinkle Cookies.

What if I don’t have a cookie scoop? 

If you don’t have an ice cream scooper, simply use a tablespoon to portion out the cookie dough. It may require a bit more hands-on shaping, but the results will be just as delicious.

What can I top these with?

You can roll the dough in powdered sugar for a crinkle style of cookie, or make a cream cheese frosting!
