Strawberry Cookies

These quick and simple Strawberry Cookies are flavored perfectly with jello mix, and full of sweet white chocolate chips.

These cookies are made using jello and instant pudding mix, similar to our Oreo Pudding Cookies. It adds the perfect flavor and chewy consistency!

Made with Jell-O Mix!

I LOVE finding new and yummy cookie recipes to try out. I often turn to Pinterest to find some new ones and am amazed at all the cookie concoctions people have made.

There was a recipe I recently found for Cherry White Chocolate Pudding Cookies… sounds heavenly, right? I knew I had to give it a try and decided to change it up just a bit and made a Strawberry cookies version.

Let me tell ya – pure heaven! The jell-o and pudding mix in the recipe are the perfection additions and makes the cookies so addicting and chewy! White chocolate chips are the best bet to add with these cookies because they also add flavor that isn’t too overpowering on the flavor of jello used.

Because we love strawberries so much, we definitely will be making these more often but may need to try the original cherry version as well.

Mixing white chocolate chips into strawberry cookie dough

How to Make them!

PREP. Preheat oven to 350°F.

DOUGH. Cream butter, sugar and jello together. Add eggs and vanilla and mix well. In a separate bowl, mix together flour, pudding mix, baking soda and salt. Slowly add to butter mixture. Mix well. Stir in white chocolate chips.

BAKE. Spoon onto a greased baking sheet. Bake for 9-11 minutes.

Change it Up

Pudding: If you don’t want to use white chocolate pudding you can use vanilla instant pudding or even instant cream cheese pudding. The only difference would be the flavor of the cookies. In any case make sure that you buy INSTANT pudding and use only the dry powder in the cookies. Do not make it into pudding.

Change the flavor by substituting the strawberry Jello powder with another flavor such as raspberry or cherry. Just like with the pudding you will not be making jello just using the Jello powder. I did use the JELL-O brand and not a generic version.

Add Frosting: If you want to add a frosting on top, I would suggest our strawberry frosting. Some other options include: berry buttercream, cream cheese, vanilla or even marshmallow frosting.

Storage Tips

To keep these strawberry white chocolate chip cookies as soft for as long as possible keep them STORED in an airtight container. Also place a piece of white bread in the container along with the cookies. When properly stored the cookies will last for about a week.

Can I freeze this dough for later? You should be fine to freeze this dough. You can either roll it into a log and freeze altogether, or roll it into individual balls to freeze and easily bake later. 

  • Log: once you have the dough rolled into a log shape wrap it with plastic wrap and again with foil. Label and freeze for 1-2 months. 
  • Dough Balls: form the dough into balls, place them all on a baking sheet and put the sheet into the freezer. Once the dough balls are frozen transfer them to a freezer safe airtight container. Freeze for 1-2 months.

    Love this recipe . Used vanilla pudding instead of white chocolate . It’s what I had on hand . I also used raspberry extract instead of vanilla. Did not change any measurements. A banana version with walnuts would also be tasty. A request from my husband ! It made 24 cookies and baked 14 min. Used small ice-cream scoop on metal cookie sheet non stick. Was a breeze with my kitchen aid. Keep the great recipes coming!

    1. Thanks for sharing! I’m all about using what’s on hand. The vanilla pudding and raspberry extract sound like a fun twist. The banana version is a great suggestion too. Glad you enjoyed the cookies!

  2. Not sure how this has has such good reviews. I followed the recipe exactly and the dough was like play-doh and they taste extremely artificial. Disappointed to say the least.
