By: Bella Bucchiotti
One of the best things about these strawberry lemonade cake mix crinkle cookies is how simple they are to make. Using lemon cake mix makes light work of this recipe. These lemon and strawberry cookies are so good. Pink lemonade crinkle cookies are always a hit!
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 8 minutes
Total Time: 18 minutes
Servings: 26 cookies



  • 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.


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.
