Made with Jell-O Mix!
I LOVE finding new and yummy cookie recipes to try out! We are big fans of cookies in this house.
I recently found a recipe for Cherry White Chocolate Pudding Cookies 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 perfect additions and makes the cookies so addicting and chewy!
The white chocolate chips add flavor that isn’t too overpowering – a perfect compliment.
Because of the sweet pink coloring, these Strawberry Cookies would be perfect for Valentine’s day or maybe a baby shower! And they are SO delicious.
How to Make Strawberry Cookies
PREP. Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray or line it with a silicon mat or parchment paper.
WET INGREDIENTS. In a large bowl, cream butter, sugar, and jello powder together. Add eggs and vanilla and mix well.
DRY INGREDIENTS. In a separate bowl, mix together flour, pudding mix, baking soda, and salt. Slowly add to the butter mixture. Mix well. Fold in white chocolate chips.
BAKE. Spoon onto a greased baking sheet. Bake for 9-11 minutes.
Strawberry Jello Cookies are perfect the way they are, but here are a few suggestions to change them up!
Pudding. Use vanilla or instant cream cheese pudding instead of white chocolate instant pudding. The only difference would be the flavor of the cookies. Be sure it is INSTANT pudding and use only the dry powder in the cookies. Do not make it into pudding.
Jello. Change the flavor by substituting the strawberry Jello powder with another flavor such as raspberry or cherry. Do not make the jello, just use the jello powder. I used the JELL-O brand and not a generic version.
Frosting. I would suggest our Strawberry Frosting. Some other options include Berry Buttercream, Cream Cheese, Vanilla, or even Marshmallow frosting. Top the frosting with sliced fresh strawberries to add more strawberry flavor.
Room temperature ingredients. Room-temperature eggs and butter will incorporate better with the other ingredients.
Set them on the counter about 30 minutes before starting the recipe. Or use this: Soften Butter Quickly.
Cooling. Allow the cookies to rest on the baking pan for 5-7 minutes after cooking. This will allow them to finish cooking, then transfer them to a cooling rack to cool completely.
Picture perfect cookies. Place a few white chips on the top of the cookies when they’re just out of the oven. Use a cookie scoop to ensure that every cookie is the same size.
STORE. Cool Strawberry White Chocolate Chip Cookies and store them in an airtight container (adding a piece of bread will help keep them soft). Cookies will last for about a week.
Cookie dough can be covered and stored in the refrigerator for 1-2 days before baking.
FREEZE the dough. 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 cookie 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!
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!
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.
Thanks for the feedback and for giving the recipe a try!
The first time I made them, I used stick butter that wasn’t quite all the way softened and they did turn out with a play-do like consistency but they were still good! I made sure that the butter was softened all the way through on the rest of the batches I’ve made and now they’re absolutely perfect!
Easy to make and so delicious. I can’t ever find white chocolate instant pudding so I just use vanilla.
That totally works too!!
I absolutely LOVE these cookies!!! I made them for my daughter’s first birthday party and they were a hit! I have another batch in the oven just for us cause they’re so good.
Made these cause …. Valentine’s Day . But seriously so yummy I’ll prob make them other times throughout the year .( I used vanilla pudding and cut way back on the white chocolate chips) Thank you for a pretty looking and pretty tasting recipe!
Well at first I couldn’t figure out why my dough was sticky. So I put it in the fridge for a bit to harden. Cookies were flat and kinda greasy after baking.. thennnn I realized I only put 1 and 1/2 cups of flour instead of 2 and 1/2 cups (smh) hahah well I had myself a chuckle and will absolutely need to try this recipe again as the cookies did still taste good lol!
