My husband ran to the grocery store and picked up buy one get one free strawberry. I also had picked up some from Costco. We had so many strawberries, so I was trying to figure out what to make with all of the ones I had. I was thinking of breakfast bread or some cookies.
We decided to have a little get together at our house. I said I would make a dessert, so it made it the most convenient time to make some of these fresh strawberry cookies.
Best decision because the first batch disappeared in less than 24-hours. Two days later, after going back to work from a 4-day weekend, I decided it was time to make them again before they go bad. My dad was here this time, and he even got to be a taste tester.
Were fresh strawberries used to make Strawberry cookies?
Yes, I do not recommend frozen for the following recipes due to frozen berries will not provide the correct consistency.
How to make Strawberry Cookies from Scratch:
It was pretty easy. I used my standard Sugar Cookie mix recipe that has been passed down to me from my mother. I added 1-½ cups of fresh strawberries. Blended well and then staring, placing them on the pan for baking.

How to make Strawberry Cookies with Cake Mix:
You’ll need the following: Cake mix (Vanilla cake mix (18.25oz) is the best!), two eggs (size large), and ½ cup of oil (I used vegetable oil). Then 1 ½ cups of sliced strawberries.
Mix the ingredients together in a large bowl until smooth before adding in the strawberries. Then mix in until evenly incorporated.
Using a spoon scoop portions of the dough onto prepared cookie sheets two inches apart.
Bake for 9 to 11 minutes, or until lightly golden on the edges for the cookies.
Allow the cookies to cool on a baking sheet for approximately 3 minutes before transferring to a wire rack.
What type of flour is best?
I have made them with either bleached white flour or whole wheat flour. Both taste good!
Please pin this recipe for later baking. I sincerely hope you enjoy these cookies because they are now an absolute favorite within our home.
