How to Make Strawberry Lemonade Crinkle Cookies
Can you believe that this cookie recipe uses two cake mixes AND just three other ingredients? Literally the easiest cookie recipe ever. These steps are just a small sampling so make certain to scroll to the bottom for the full recipe.
Step 1: Mix together the cake mix and other ingredients
Follow the directions on the cake mix box and make up the cake mix batter.
Step 2: Make the cookies and bake
Once the batter is made, you can then start to make the cookies. Combine the two batters and pop in the oven.
These cookies are such a fun recipe to whip up!
Variations / Options / Add-Ins
Change up the flavor of cake mix: There are so many cake mix flavors to try!
Top with some sort of frosting: Want to add some extra sweetness? Use frosting!
Try to make other fun shapes: Crinkle cookies are fun but see if you can create a heart or a flower as well.
You can also top these cookies with a little bit of powdered sugar as well. A sprinkle of sugar can make each bite unique.
Make certain that you store leftover cookies in an airtight container. This will keep them fresh for several days at a time.
Yes, you can totally freeze these cookies! I like to freeze them once they’re baked but I also think that you could freeze cookie dough as well.
If you are running low on time, you can create the cookie dough a day ahead and keep it in the fridge until you’re ready to bake it.
