I’m the only girl in my house which means we don’t see much of the color pink, so when Valentine’s Day rolls around I finally have an excuse to bake and decorate with pink!
What could be better than pink cookies?!

(Recipe adapted from 30 Handmade Days)

Ingredients:
Cookies:
1 package of strawberry cake mix

1/2 stick of butter, softened
2 tsp. vanilla
4 c. powdered sugar

    Just a question. I’m interested in making these, and I LOVE cream cheese, but for those who might not like cream cheese frosting, do you happen to have alternative suggestions for the filling? Would regular store bought frosting work? Just curious!

    I used butter instead of shortening. My batter was very gooey and sticky, but I just used plenty of flour on my hands. However, I ended up with half my frosting left over! Unless you want tons of frosting in your cookies, halve that part of the recipe!

    Since I had leftover frosting from my original bath, I decided to make chocolate ones. I used devil’s food cake mix, since that’s what I already had. At first, I wasn’t sure how they would turn out. I ended up cooking the balls for 11 minutes at 350, then flattening them out right after they came out of the oven. They ended up firming up better than the strawberry ones which made it easier to spread the frosting, but they are still super soft when you eat them. They ended up being a winner!

    These were delicious! I made them this past Valentine’s Day for my boyfriend and also ended up taking a batch in to work. My co-workers loved them and my boyfriend thought they were amazing!!!! Definitely a winner :)

    Made these for Valentine’s Day & they were fantastic! Would definitely cut the filling recipe in half…a lot leftover after all the cookies were done. Great recipe…will use it again!
