Strawberry Crinkle Cookies

Hello! I apologize for my absence this past week as we had been preparing for my daughter’s Dol, a big event in the Korean culture that celebrates a baby’s first birthday or first year of life.  There will definitely be more details on the food, decor, and projects later on in the blog.  Today I wanted to share one of the desserts that I had baked for the party called Strawberry Crinkle Cookies.  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 because it is all 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 have read some recipes that included rolling the balls in granulated sugar before rolling in the powdered sugar but honestly I did not notice a big difference between the two when I used granulated sugar for half of a batch.




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.
