These super easy strawberry cake mix cookies have white chips stirred in giving you that perfect strawberries and cream flavor combination. They are soft, tasty and quick too.

If you want the goodness of fresh baked cookies, but don’t want to put in a lot of time or effort, this recipe is for you. You can serve homemade cookies without any chill time and hardly any measuring.

Cake mix, oil, eggs and white chocolate chips ready to be made into cookies.

It is the perfect answer when you need a treat to share but you don’t have much time to make it. Or bake some to quickly quiet your sweet tooth when it is misbehaving.

The fun pink and white colors make them perfect for Valentine’s Day, Easter, baby showers, gender reveals and more.

Making the Cookie Dough

This dough comes together in just a minute or two. Stir together the cake mix, eggs and oil to make the base dough.

Then stir in a cup of white chocolate or vanilla chips. That’s really it!

You don’t have to chill the dough or soften butter or do any of the time consuming steps in other cookie recipes. Scoop the dough onto a baking sheet and it will be in the oven within five minutes of the time you started.

These strawberry cookies are super soft and kind of flat. We love them that way, but if you are looking for a slightly thicker chewy cookie just add an extra quarter cup of flour.

How do I store cake mix cookies?

Cookies are best stored in an airtight container at room temperature. They will hold that way for at least a week.

Try adding a piece of sandwich bread to the container to keep them soft longer.

For even longer storage, put them in a freezer bag and freeze them for up to 3 months.

Other Flavor Combinations

It is really easy to take this base recipe and turn it into something different. Just use different flavors of cake mix and chocolate chips.

We made a batch of lemon and white chocolate cookies at the same time we made these strawberry ones. The combination of lemon and strawberry is always fun and the pink cookies and yellow cookies looked so good together on a tray.

We also love making peanut butter chocolate cake mix cookies. It’s hard to go wrong with that flavor duo.

You could use a red velvet cake mix striking red cookies. That would be another great Valentine’s Day or Christmas treat.

Tips for Making These Cookies

Don’t overbake the cookies. They are best soft and a little gooey in the middle.

Once the edges are golden brown, go ahead and take them out of the oven. They will be soft, so let them cool on the sheet pan for a couple of minutes before moving them to a wire rack to cool completely.

These pink cake mix cookies do spread quite a bit as they bake. So be sure to give them plenty of room on the tray.

You will also want to make sure the dough is either ball or tall scoop to start so they don’t flatten too fast. There is no need to push them down before baking them, just let them do their thing.

If you want, you can dot more white chocolate chips on the cookies when they come out. That will ensure the tops are covered with tasty chips and keep some pure white.

More Fun Recipes That Start With a Cake Mix:

If you like super soft gooey cookies, try making lemon gooey butter cookies. You could easily sub in a strawberry cake mix if you want another twist on easy pink cookies.

Or use a cake mix to make fun chocolate peanut butter whoopie pies. Lemon blueberry whoopie pies are also fun if you aren’t in the mood for chocolate.

Funfetti gooey butter cake is a sprinkle filled option. The cream cheese and butter makes a rich gooey layer and the sprinkles make it a party!

Chocolate cherry fudge bundt cake is another popular recipe that starts with a cake mix. Check out my full collection of cake mix recipes for more tasty ideas!

I did not bake them, but I did eat many of them baked by someone else. So delicious! Never thought that a strawberry cookie was possible.
