Use any brand of lemon cake mix you happen to prefer. You can also swap the freeze-dried strawberries in the pink cake cookies for freeze-dried raspberries or another kind of berry.

Pink Lemonade Crinkle Cookies FAQs

Can you make lemon and strawberry crinkle cookies ahead?

It’s fine to make strawberry lemonade cake mix crinkle cookies in advance since they will keep for a while. Well maybe not in this house but that’s another story! Store them covered at room temperature for up to a week or refrigerate them for up to a couple of weeks. You can also freeze the pink cake cookies for up to 2 months.

Which brand of lemon cake mix is best to use?

It doesn’t make much difference really, although I’ve had good results using the Betty Crocker brand of lemon cake. The Duncan Hines one is also pretty good.

Ingredients

  • 1 Box cake mix lemon, 15.25 Ounces
  • 1 Ounces freeze dried strawberries
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ Cup vegetable oil or canola
  • ½ Cup powdered sugar

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.
  • In a large bowl mix together the cake mix, oil, and eggs.
  • In a separate bowl, crush the freeze dried strawberries. You want to have some chunks and some will become a powder.
  • Carefully fold the crushed strawberries into the cookie dough, don’t overmix or the dough will become completely pink.
  • Using a cookie scoop or a spoon, scoop all of the dough into approx 1.5” to 2” balls.
  • Place the powdered sure into a bowl. Roll each of the dough balls in the powdered sugar. Try to get as much powdered sugar onto the ball as possible.
  • Place each of the powdered balls onto your prepared cookie sheets, leaving a couple inches between each.
  • Place the cookies in the preheated oven, and bake them for 8 to 10 minutes rotating the pans halfway through.
  • Remove the cookies when they are done baking and let cool on the trays.
  • Serve or store in an airtight container once completely cooled.

Notes

Be careful not to over mix, over mixing will cause the strawberries to dye the whole dough pink… which is totally fine but it won’t have the same yellow/pink mix as you see in the pictures. 
Pro-tip – REALLY pack the powdered sugar on each dough ball, you can even leave a little mound on top! 
If not looking crinkled, try to put tray with balls in freezer for 15 minutes before baking.
