If soggy pink cookies are your thing... Yum!

Baking cookies with a cake mix is awesome. Even easier for a 5-year-old to do it. Way less ingredients to toss together. I had found a site that had 9 different recipes for cake mixes and asked Bronwyn which one she wanted to do. I suggested S'Mores - YES she wanted to do that one!! I told her they would be chocolate - oh no... not that one. She wanted to try Strawberry Cream Cookies probably because they are pink. OK. Let's do it!
The recipe was really easy and we had everything in the house for it. She mixed it all up - I dished them out and baked them.
They were OK. The fake strawberry cake mix taste, along with the wet fresh strawberries and swirls of cream cheese made for a wet soggy cookie. Probably should have seen that coming. Probably... Kids? Didn't really like them. Bah! Should have done the S'mores version - another day perhaps. We have 8 more varieties to try and see if we like them. Andy has been munching on the cookies so they can't be that bad I guess.

Strawberries ‘n’ Cream Cake Mix Cookies
1 package strawberry cake mix
½ cup (75 g) strawberry, chopped
½ cup (115 g) cream cheese
⅓ cup (80 mL) oil
2 eggs

Combine cake mix, strawberries, oil, and eggs in a mixing bowl.
Add in cream cheese and lightly mix allowing the cream cheese to still be visible and not all the way mixed in.
Using an ice cream scoop or your hand, form golf ball-sized balls of cookie dough and transfer to a parchment paper-lined baking sheet.
Bake at 350°F/180°C for 10-12 minutes.
