Valentine's Day Cookies

In honor of Valentine's Day I've decided to do a series of recipes that are Valentine inspired. First recipe, cake cookies! For those of you who have never had cake cookies, you are truly missing out. They taste exactly like cake but in the form of a cookie, and they're so easy. I'd like to think that I've perfected the art of the cake cookie, my personal preference being white cake with white chocolate chips thrown in. However, I've tried all sorts of combinations; chocolate cake with peanut butter, chocolate cake with white and chocolate chips, funfetti cookies, etc. But for Valentine's Day I decided to try something new: strawberry cake mix with white chocolate chips. I highly recommend that you try these!


1 box of strawberry cake mix (I prefer Betty Crocker)
1/3 cup of canola or vegetable oil
2 eggs
1/2 cup white chocolate chips

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Mix the cake mix, oil, and eggs in a large bowl until combined. Add the white chocolate chips and mix. Roll mixture into 1 inch balls and place on a cookie sheet sprayed with cooking spray. Bake for 8-10 minutes and watch closely! (I prefer them just BARELY starting to brown, so they're soft on the inside). Dust with powdered sugar once removed from sheet pan.

If you don't want to try strawberry flavor you can use white cake and add red food coloring for the same effect!

    This recipe is delicious and super easy to make with kids!!! How did you get your cookies so flat and chewy? Mine puffed up at 7 minutes. Any suggestions?
