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 tem!

PREP. Preheat oven to 350.

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.

  1. Just made your YUMMY cookies. Wanted to make them for a baby shower and they are awesome! Yummy flavor! They did not turn out as pink as yours, but are still a pale baby pink and so pretty with the white chips poking through. Some people were asking how many this recipe makes, I used a 3 inch ice cream scoop, and got exactly three dozen. Just what I needed. Yea!

  2. I forgot to add, I had to cook mine for 15 minutes since the were so big. They are so yummy, I may not have any left for the shower.

    1. LOL!! I’m so glad you liked these!! You can definitely make them a little more pink with food coloring. 😉 I hope you’re able to have some for the shower and that those there will enjoy them. Thanks for stopping by!

  3. hello I was wondering would I be able to use a strawberries cream pudding mix & not use the jello? I didn’t know if they would still come out pink.

  4. 4 stars
    Made them! They turned out very yummy however the pink disappeared in the oven somehow. The dough was super pink because I used the entire packet of jello mix, but when they came out of the oven they were almost white. I did use an off brand of jello though,do you think that was the cause? Anyway, good recipe!

    1. Yay! I’m not sure why they came out, almost white. I haven’t had that happen. Maybe try the Jello brand & see if that helps? Let me know! We love this recipe!!

  5. 5 stars
    Made these for a flamingo themed bachelorette party. They turned out amazing and so pink! Big hit. Thanks for the recipe! Will be making these again soon.

    1. Hmm..I am not sure sure what yours looked like, but I do like to add a few chips on top, before I put them in the oven. That gives them a pretty look. I hope they tasted good!

  6. 5 stars
    My family LOVES these!!!! I have made them 3 times, once even using Raspberry Jell-O in place of the Strawberry. I personally liked the original Strawberry better because it’s sweeter but my hubby likes Raspberry better since it’s not as sweet. They came out perfect everytime and were super soft even after a few days stored in Zip-loc baggies!

  7. hello i m really excite to make this cookies but in mexico ther’s not pudding instant mix. can i change this ingrediente by other one?

    1. Do you have an equivalent to instant pudding? I haven’t tried substituting it before. If you google substitutions for instant pudding in cookies, there are suggestions, so you’d need to just see what you have. Hope that helps!

    These cookies Are deliCious!! I have a friend that loves pumpkin I was wOndering if you had Any suggestions oh how to make these pumpkin flavored since tHey don’t make pumpkin Flavored jello

    1. Glad you like them! I haven’t tried them as a pumpkin flavor, but maybe you can use a couple teaspoons of pumpkin puree, instead of the strawberry jello. Or, use vanilla pudding, but a however much pumpkin spice you’d like. I have seen pumpkin jello, but it might be hard to find at the moment.

  9. 5 stars
    Even better than I thought they would be! I did not get as many as the recipe said…I made them larger and got about 16 cookies. It was hard to tell when they were done, I waited until the bottoms started to brown. They were perfect; soft inside and firm enough on the bottom to support their weight.

  10. Your first image of these cookies grabbed my attention immediately. Perfection!
    I recently had a tour of a strawberry farmers operation: and have a deeper respect for what farmers do for us all. I have loved strawberries my entire life. I knew I had to make these cookies and have printed the recipe. I will make them this weekend and my son is turning 12 and LOVES all things strawberry. They will blow his mind. Thank you for sharing this recipe with us!
