Strawberry Cake Cookies

Cookies are ALWAYS one of my go to desserts. They are easy and one batch makes a lot.

With my next batch of cookies, I wanted to do something fun for the spring and summer weather and decided strawberry is always a great direction to go. Because really, don’t strawberries just scream summer?!

These cookies are so soft and the flavor is super fun and festive for the warmer weather.

Strawberry Cake Cookies... These cookies are SUPER easy and soft. They have such a fun and delicious flavor!

Bonus… they are SO easy! They are made using a cake mix and whip up super quickly.

The frosting is a cream cheese and buttercream fusion and is so creamy spread upon the tops of these. It adds such a great competent to the cookies. Top off with a fresh sliced strawberry, and you have one color popping, eye catching, tummy pleasing treat!

    They're gorgeous! I love strawberry cake mix cookies and they bring back fond memories of a first day of school treat I made my daughter years ago and she loves them, too, and still requests them :) Pinned!!
