These soft, chewy treats have a sweet, tangy flavor and are a perfect blend of two classic dessert forms: the sheet cake and the cookie.

You’ll need:

  • 1 (15.25-ounce) box of strawberry cake mix
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • ⅓ cup of vegetable oil
  • 1 cup of powdered sugar
  • ¼ cup of strawberry preserves
  • 2 tablespoons of half and half

Substitutions And Additions

CHOCOLATE CHIPS: You can add white chocolate chips to the cookie dough for an extra burst of sweetness.

EGGS: If you prefer not to use eggs, you can substitute ½ cup of applesauce for the eggs in these delicious strawberry cake mix cookies.

STRAWBERRY PRESERVES: If you’re feeling adventurous, you can swap out strawberries for other berries like raspberries, blueberries, or even blackberries.

These alternatives will give your sheet cake cookies a burst of different fruity flavors while keeping the overall texture and appearance intact.

How To Make This Strawberry Sheet Cake Cookies Recipe

Cake mix is used to make the batter for these delectable cookies. Once it is mixed up, you will scoop the cookies onto your baking sheet and pop them in the oven.

While they are baking, make the sweet glaze to drizzle on top before serving.

STEP ONE: Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Set it aside.

STEP TWO: Add the box of cake mix, eggs, and vegetable oil to a medium bowl. Use a handheld electric mixer on medium speed to mix the ingredients until just combined. The mixture will be very thick.

OUR RECIPE DEVELOPER SAYS

You can use a 1-tablespoon cookie scoop for smaller cookies. Be sure to reduce your baking time to eight minutes.

STEP THREE: Use a 1½-tablespoon cookie scoop to scoop the cookie dough. Space two inches apart.

Bake for 10 to 12 minutes until the edges are just barely golden. Allow the cookies to rest on the cookie sheet for five minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.

While the cookies are cooking, make the glaze.

PRO TIP:

Oven temperatures vary and may need to be recalibrated periodically to ensure they are accurate. Make sure to keep a close eye on your cookies as the suggested baking time approaches.

STEP FOUR: Add the powdered sugar, strawberry preserves, and half and half to a small mixing bowl. Whisk, or stir until the glaze is smooth.

STEP FIVE: Once the cookies have cooled, spoon the glaze over the top of the cookies. Allow the glaze to set before serving.

PRO TIP:

Place the cooling rack with the cookies over a piece of parchment paper before you spoon the glaze on top of the cookies to catch any drips.

How To Serve

These pretty pink strawberry cake cookies make an excellent afternoon or evening snack.

Serve a plate of these yummy cookies with a warm mug of homemade hot chocolate, a cup of tea, or a cold glass of milk.

You could pair them with a scoop of rich, creamy vanilla ice cream for a classic combination or whip up a batch of homemade whipped cream for a lighter, fluffier accent.

If you’re feeling adventurous, a dollop of tangy lemon curd could take these cookies to the next level.

Storage

MAKE AHEAD: The dough for these cookies can be frozen. Pull just a few out of the freezer at a time to bake when you are looking for something sweet.

ON THE COUNTER: Store any leftover strawberry cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for four days. Use wax paper to separate layers of cookies. 

IN THE FREEZER: You can freeze the cookie dough balls for two months. Store them in a freezer bag or airtight container.

When you are ready to bake the batch of cookies, you can bake them straight out of the freezer. Be sure to add five to seven minutes to the baking time.
