Get ready to experience a giant Strawberry cookie explosion in your mouth with the first bite of this ridiculously sized pink colored cookie! ♥♥♥
Ever wonder why mini cupcakes taste so much better than the standard ones? Or why you fancy teeny-weeny cake-pops over a big boring cake? Is it because mini cupcakes and cake-pops are fun and cute deviations from their regular versions? Regular is always dull. Crazy boring. No?
That’s why this giant strawberry cookie here is so different. 1000x better than all other dwarf cookies. Also when you can have only one cookie, it has to be giant! Hello! Slim legs. 😉 And when that giant cookie tastes strawberry and is colored Pink, can you help inhaling two at a time? Well I don’t know if you can, I couldn’t (Shameless gal stands here)!
Suggestions to bake Giant Strawberry Cookie
I suggest you only bake these cookies when you have someone to share these with you. Else don’t come back complaining, I didn’t warn you earlier!
Rest you don’t even need to break out your mixers or any baking tools to whip these cookies. And these come together in less than 25 minutes, start to finish! Takes additional 30 seconds to polish them off! Burp. Excuse me!
Can it get any easier than this? Add a little egg, some oil and yogurt to some strawberry cake-mix. Whisk it to combine. Freeze for 10 minutes, stud with some chocolate chips of choice and bake. Then wait for ten until a big fluffy, extra chewy, crinkly, melt in mouth and loaded with strawberry flavor cookie appear in front of you.
How do ingredients behave (chemistry wise) in the recipe!
Yogurt– Makes the cookie extra chewy
Baking soda– Essential for that fluffy bake
Oil– Prevents cookie from drying out
Egg– Binds the cookie
Why does everything look so pink to me today? Is it just me?
I used both dark and white chocolate chips in the recipe for taste and added appearance. You can top them with absolutely any candy that your heart desires.
You can easily press down a few more chocolate chips after they come out of oven for some more added beauty. The chips will melt slightly, as the cookies will be warm. Heavenly!
All my Ladies and my Men (if any male reads this! :D) who have never baked before, charm your loved ones with these strawberry cookies. But forget not to bake a minimum of two. Taste test and treat yourself with one and give away the other if you can.
I won’t judge if you ate both in one sitting too. Promise!
Just look at how thick this cookie is. Strawberry cake-mix does most of the job for us here. I used duncan hines this time. Love how pretty the color turned out. Picture-perfect-pink, is it not?
Wait, what did you say? YOU ARE PLANNING TO WAIT TILL VALENTINES TO BAKE THESE!!!
Have you lost I get these are pink and all. But why wait for some occasion to bake cookies, when these are so quick to bake and even quicker to finish? Isn’t it valentine everyday with these giant strawberryyyy treat in both of your hands? One in both? No? Don’t ask me.
Get ready to experience a giant Strawberry cookie explosion in your mouth with the first bite of this ridiculously sized pink colored cookie! Thick, chewy, fluffy and strawberryyyy yummy!
- 117 Gms Strawberry cake mix
- 1 Tbsp Thick yogurt
- 1 Tbsp Egg
- 1 Tbsp Oil
- 1/8 tsp Baking soda
- 2 Tbsp Dark chocolate chips
- 1 Tbsp White chocolate chips
Preheat your oven to 350 F and line a large cookie sheet with parchment paper/silicone baking mat and set aside.
2. In a mixing bowl put in your cake mix, add oil, baking soda, yogurt and egg (everything at at room temperature). And mix well with a spoon/spatula to form a dough.
3. The dough will be very sticky at first. But worry not. This will produce the chewiest cookie you will ever taste. Add in dark chocolate chips( save a few for decoration) and freeze for 3-4 minutes or until the dough is firm enough to handle.
4. Take the dough in your hands and make it into a ball. Press this ball on your lined cookie sheet to form a circle as shown in the picture above. Press in a few more chocolate chips(Optional).
5. Bake the cookie for 9 minutes and check for doneness. Take the cookie out if it has got a pale color on the edges. Else bake for another minute. The cookie will appear soft in the center but will set as it cools down.
6. Take out of oven and let it cool further down on the sheet. This is the perfect time when you can press in a few more chocolate chips for appearance and Hello! Extra chocolate chips.
7. Devour the fruit (or shall I say fruity cookie) of your toil. 😉
- This giant strawberry cookie is famous for catching color quickly. So keep an eye on them. Every oven is different. So, I'd say baby sit them for that gorgeous color. And turn the tray if you see them browning too soon on one side.
- I don't like how white chocolate chips catch color if pressed in the cookie before baking. Therefore, I decorated my cookie with white chips when this was cooling down. I suggest you do the same.
- The cookie might appear soft in the center, but it sets well as it cools down.
- You can double this recipe at ease to make two cookies together. Bake them one after the other if your cookie sheet is unable to accommodate them.
