HOW TO MAKE STRAWBERRY CAKE BOX COOKIES

This is a very easy recipe to make and a great one to make with your children/grandchildren. The ingredients are few and simple for this amazingly mouth watering cookies. These do not need to be expensive ingredients to create the drool worthy cookies. I purchased great value cake mix, Jello, and chocolate chips. I do typically purchase a good cream cheese though.

1. Preheat the oven to 325 F and put parchment paper or silicone mats on your cookie sheets.

2. First thing you do is beat the stick of softened butter, 4 oz. of cream cheese, and one egg.

3. Then add in the cake mix and Jello mix and mix until well combined.

5. Scoop and roll into small approx. 1 – 1 1/2 inch rolls and use your fingers or a glass to flatten and manipulate into a nice round circle.

6. Place in the oven at 325 F for 11-15 minutes.

7. Once you remove them from the oven you can manipulate them a little more if needed into circles. Let them sit for a couple minutes on the sheet before transferring them to the rack to cool completely.

8. If desired you can melt the remaining chocolate chips. Pour in a plastic bag and clip the corner to drizzle on the cookies. If needed you can add an oz of coconut oil to make it a little thinner or smoother.

PRO TIPS

There is no reason to spend a lot of money on big name ingredients. I used Walmart Great Value products for all of the ingredients except the cream cheese. 

When the cookies first come out of the oven they are able to be manipulated to reform them into round circles. As they will be hot don't use your fingers.
