Strawberry Crinkle Cookies

Hello, ready for some yummy and easy cookies? Today I wanted to share one of the desserts  I had baked for my daughter’s birthday Dol (a Korean 1st birthday party) called Strawberry Crinkle Cookies.  

These are by far one of my favorite and easiest cookie recipes! Only 4 ingredients needed, super easy and quick to put together, and the kids love helping with this sweet treat.

One reason I love these cookies is it is easy to change up the flavor and color of the cookies based on what flavor of cake mix you use.  Yes, I said cake mix!  The only ingredients for this cookie recipe are cake mix, 2 eggs, 1/3 cup of oil, and powdered sugar.  That’s it!


Here they are straight out of the oven.


I love how pretty they turn out, and this is also a fun and easy recipe to make with the kids. 20141119_165530

Would be great for Valentine’s Day, birthday parties, and any weekend!


They were a huge hit at the party, kids and adults alike.  Don’t like strawberry? How about lemon crinkle cookies using lemon cake mix instead! Or chocolate?  What about red velvet? The choices are endless.


Ready to bake some Strawberry Crinkle cookies for the family? Here’s the recipe and don’t be shocked at the simplicity of it.

    I love to bake cookies ahead of time to freeze for church events. This also keeps me from having to bake 100 cookies on the same day! Do these cookies freeze well after baking? Also what about freezing the dough in balls for a quick cookie snack?
