Chewy Strawberry Cookies

 

 

With Valentine's Day approaching, I did a little search on Pinterest for some recipes that are pretty and pink. This recipe for Chewy Strawberry Cookies really intrigued me because the ingredients were so odd. Could a strawberry cake mix, eggs and whipped topping make a chewy and delicious cookie?

They definitely went together as easy as can be. Please be aware that this dough needs to chill for 2 hours in the fridge - I would have started sooner if I had realized that. However, this stage is important for getting the cookie dough to the right consistency for rolling into balls.

Soon, a luscious strawberry scent was filling my kitchen and I could hardly wait to give one of these pretty, pink cookies a try. The ingredients may be strange, but they came together to create a delicious cookie. I can think of many occasions, besides Valentine's Day, where a pink cookie would be the perfect sweet treat to serve - like a baby or bridal shower, a little girl's party or an afternoon tea. Enjoy!

 

Chewy Strawberry Cookies


1 box strawberry cake mix plus 1 cup of flour

2 eggs

2 cups whipped topping

Powdered sugar


Mix together cake mix, flour, eggs and whipped topping with mixer.

Chill dough for 2 hours.

Roll into 1 inch balls, coat with powdered sugar and place on a lined baking sheet.

Bake at 350 degrees for 9 - 11 minutes until golden brown on the edges.

Store cookies in fridge, when cooled.


Have a wonderful weekend - and stay warm :-)

  7. I made these too Vicki! So easy and yummy, not to mention pretty. I happen to have a little book '101 things to do with a cake mix'. There's so many ways to fancy boxed mixes up so they don't taste boxed, and this is one of them.

  11. Great cookie for Valentine's Day or like my husband says; 'A good cookie is good at anytime.'
    I have made lemon crackle cookies which are my husbands favorite.
    One thing that I do different; I roll my cookie balls in granulated sugar first and then roll them in the powdered sugar and then bake. I think they give you a much prettier crackle by rolling in granulated white sugar first.

  12. My husband does not care for strawberries or anything strawberry flavored. I guess I will just have to eat all the cookies myself! Have a great week!
