Strawberry Pudding Mix Cookies

If you’re in the mood for soft, sweet strawberry cookies, then you’ll love these quick and easy strawberry pudding mix cookies. These cookies are very soft and chewy and bursting with delicious bits of strawberry in every bite.

For the strawberries in this recipe, we use Simply Nature freeze-dried strawberries that we found at Aldi. We have not tried fresh strawberries, so I can’t share how much to use or whether the cookies come out the same. If you try it, please share your results in the comments below.

If you’d like to glaze them you can mix two cups of powdered sugar with a teaspoon of strawberry extract and a tablespoon or two of milk. Add a couple of drops of red food coloring to brighten the cookies a bit, if you like. Add just enough to create a glaze, then dip the tops of the cookies.

Slice & Bake Strawberry Cookies

If you’d like to make the cookie dough ahead of time, these can be formed into dough logs and frozen for creating slice and bake cookies.

Once the dough is formed, overturn it onto a very lightly floured surface. Use a dough scraper or your hands to lightly shape the dough into a log, rolling it gently to ensure it’s an even thickness throughout.

Wrap the log in parchment paper and freeze until solid. If you have a large family, leave the log intact and wrap it tightly with freezer wrap, plastic wrap, or vacuum seal it.

If you have a smaller household, cut the log into halves or thirds, and wrap each section. Return to the freezer until you’re ready for fresh delicious strawberry cookies!
