My cute little 3 year old wanted to make pink COOKIES one day, and this is what we came up with. They turned out nice and PINK, as you can see and tasted really yummy too. The texture is SIMILAR to that of the Lofthouse Sugar Cookies you might buy at your local grocer, but tastes way BETTER to me!
Strawberry Sugar Cookies
1 box strawberry cake mix
2/3 cup flour
2 large eggs
1/3 cup canola oil
2 tablespoons sour cream
Cream Cheese Frosting (but use 1/2 cup butter and 8 ounces cream cheese instead!)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, stir all of the ingredients together until well blended; batter will somewhat stiff. Roll the dough into 1-inch balls and then flatten to about 1/2-inch thick on a lined cookie sheet. Sprinkle a little extra sugar over top and then bake 10 minutes. Cool for 1 minute and then transfer to a rack and let cool completely. Make your cream cheese frosting and frost the cooled cookies. Top with your favorite sprinkles!
TIP: Try making these with other cake mixes and see what is your favorite! You can use a white cake mix for "regular" sugar cookies.
