Ingredients

  • 1 Box Strawberry cake mix
  • 1 tsp Baking powder
  • 1/3 Cup Oil
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 1/2 Cup Mini chocolate chips
  • 10-12 Whole cherries (preserved ones, drained)

Instructions

  • 1. Preheat your oven to 350 deg F and line 2 large cookie sheets with parchment paper/silicone baking mat and set aside.
    2. In a mixing bowl add oil, vanilla and egg (everything at at room temperature). And mix well with a spoon till well combined.
    3. Add in cake mix and baking powder. No need to sift. Stir with a spoon to form a dough. Make sure no lumps remain. Throw in half of the chocolate chips (save the rest for decoration) and chopped cherries. If you find the dough sticky, freeze for 3-4 minutes (covering with a cling wrap) or until the dough is firm enough to handle.
    4. Take the dough in your hands (using a small ice cream scoop) and roll into tall balls. Don't make these round. As the cookies have a tendency to spread out in oven quite a bit.
    5. Put the tall dough balls on the prepared sheets at a distance and bake for about 9-10 minutes.
    6. Let them cool down further on a wire rack and this is the time to press the remaining chocolate chips into them.
    7. Ready to enjoy when cooled down completely.

Notes

  1. Strawberry cookies are famous for catching color quickly. So keep an eye on them. Every oven is different. Turn the tray half way through (after 6 mins) if you see them browning too soon on one side.
  2. The cookies might appear soft in the center at the ninth minute. Don't be tempted to over bake them. These will firm up as they cool down.
