Have you seen the Barbie movie yet?

I’m planning to see it next week and am tickled PINK to experience Barbie fever!

I have loved the color pink my whole life…I wear pink, I decorate with pink, and I bake PINK!

I’m slipping on my pink sandals, watering my pink potted flowers, and baking a fresh batch of cookies in a sweet strawberry flavor that will hit the spot!

All you need is a box of cake mix, vegetable oil, and eggs! It couldn’t be easier!

The 3 ingredients for Strawberry Cake Cookies

Cake Mix

The primary ingredient for these easy cookies is a box of strawberry cake mix. The best part is that by using a boxed cake mix, you are simplifying your recipe but not sacrificing flavor. There are lots of different cake mixes available and any one of them will do.

The three ingredients used in a strawberry cake cookie recipe.

For extra moisture in the cookies, my favorite cake mixes to use are either Duncan Hines Strawberry Supreme Cake Mix or Betty Crocker Super Moist Delights Strawberry Cake Mix. (I have a hard time finding Duncan Hines in our grocery store so Betty Crocker is a good alternative.)

Vegetable Oil

Every cookie needs moisture and this cookie gets it from the oil. You can use vegetable, canola, peanut, or grapeseed oil. (any oil that can withstand high heat.)


Eggs are always the essential ingredient that binds the batter and gives the cookies their cake-like rise and delicious chewiness. Large eggs are the best for this recipe.

How to Make 3 Ingredient Strawberry Cake Cookies

Do you have about 20 minutes? With 3 ingredients and just a few steps, you are going to have delicious strawberry cake mix cookies in no time!

Step #1 – Prep

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. While the oven is heating up, line your cookie sheet with parchment paper. I actually prep two cookie sheets to save time as I’m baking.

Step #2 – Mix

In a large bowl, whisk together the 2 eggs and 1/3 cup vegetable oil. (Don’t follow the box ingredient amounts.)

Once thoroughly combined, add the strawberry cake mix and mix together with a wooden spoon or rubber spatula. 

Mix just until everything is combined. Overmixing can result in a tough cookie!

Step #3 – Scoop

Using a small ice cream scoop or a spoon, scoop the cookie batter for individual cookies onto the lined baking sheet. For best results, place the cookie dough balls about 2 inches from each other so there is room for them to spread out.

Step #4 – Bake

Place your cookies into the preheated oven and let bake for 8-10 minutes. Turn on your oven light and watch as the cookie balls bake into beautiful strawberry crinkle cookies!

You will know that the cookies are done when the edges turn slightly brown but the middle is still slightly soft. Oh my goodness, the smell of these cookies is amazing!

Once you remove the cookies from the oven, let them cool slightly before transferring them to a wire rack to cool.

How to Store Your Pink Strawberry Cookies

Store your cookies in an airtight container to keep them fresh. Better yet, stack them into a pretty glass decorative jar and display on your kitchen countertop.

These cookies also freeze well so you can also toss them into a freezer bag to save for later. This never works for me because I always eat them so fast!
