Strawberry Cookie Add ins
There are a lot of things that you can add into these cookies. Just think about what you enjoy with strawberries.
Chocolate Chips- You can milk or semi sweet chocolate chips. Also, white chocolate chips will taste good in these cookies. Of course, you can make a combination of the 2.
Candy– You can go another way to add in chocolate by adding in candies. You can a Hershey Kiss on top or chop it up and put it in the cookies. M&Ms can be added to the cookie batter too.
Sprinkles– Sprinkles make everything better, so adding them to the strawberry cake mix cookies just makes these cookies fun. You can decorate the cookies according to the time of year or holidays, or just go way out with your favorite sprinkles.
Strawberries– You can even add in small pieces of strawberries in these cookies. Using fresh strawberries will add more moisture to the cookies so you only want to have a piece or two of strawberries into a cookie. If you are using frozen strawberries, make sure they are thawed and dried well. You can also try adding in pieces of dried strawberries.
Nuts- Chopped nuts, especially almonds, can amazing in these cookies. Make sure to chop the nuts very small so that it doesn’t over take the cookies.
Frosting– Make these cookies into sandwich cookies. Take one cookie and add a small dollop of frosting. Then place a second cookie on top and it creates a delicious sandwich cookie. Buttercream frosting or chocolate buttercream frosting works well, strawberry frosting would work and so would a basic cream cheese frosting.
Want to make these strawberry cookies have a strawberry cheesecake flavor. You don’t have to add cream cheese to the cookies. You can add cream cheese flavoring or cheesecake flavoring. This will add a burst of cheesecake flavor but keeps the easiness of the cookies.
How to Tell When the Cake Mix Cookies are Done
You want to make sure you are baking the perfect cake mix cookies for about 10 minutes. When you look at the cookies, they will seem soft. The centers are soft set and a little gooey. So do not wait until the cookies are browned to remove them from the oven. The cookies will be burned.
Tips for Scooping the Strawberry Cookie Dough
I like to use a cookie scoop when I am the cookie dough balls. This keeps all of them the same size, which helps with the baking time. Everything bakes the way it is supposed and all on time.
If the cookie dough is a little too sticky to work with, you can place it in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. This will make the dough less sticky and make it easier to work with. Then you are able to roll it in the powdered sugar easier. Placing the dough in the refrigerator also helps prevent the cookies from spreading. This keeps that thick chewy cookie you are craving.
Tips and Tricks for Making Cake Mix Cookies
Do not overbake. You do not want to wait until the cookies are brown before removing from the oven. The cookies will be soft when they are done baking. If they are brown, the cookies are overbaked. The cookies will come out soft and will set as they cool.
If the dough seems too sticky to work with, place it in the refrigerator. This will make the dough easier to work with.
Make sure the cookies are the same size and shape for easier baking. I like to use a cookie scoop.
Only bake one cookie sheet at a time. Baking multiple cookie sheets at one time can interfere with the cookies baking properly.
