strawberry cake cookies

March 18, 2014

prep time: 20 minutes       bake time: 12 minutes       total time: 35 minutes       makes about 50 cookies

1 box of strawberry cake mix (or red velvet, if you prefer)
1 box of 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 stick of butter, softened
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
6-7 tsp powdered sugar


  1. mix cream cheese and butter until well blended.
  2. beat in the egg.
  3. add vanilla and cake mix.
  4. cover and chill for 2 hours (or put them in the freezer for about 20 minutes).
  5. roll into 1 1/4 inch balls, then roll in powdered sugar.
  6. place on cookie sheet about 1 inch apart. (they will spread, the bigger you make the balls.)
  7. bake at 350 degrees for 12 minutes. (don’t worry, they will be soft – that’s what makes them good !)


these. are. GOOD. incredibly moist. and so addicting. i tried the strawberry cake mix for the first time around and i bought red velvet cake mix to make them a second time for valentine’s day, but i’m afraid they won’t be as good as the strawberry. when i’ve tried the red velvet, i’ll let you know which one’s better.
