In a delicious twist, these Strawberry Cake Mix Cookies are a miniature version of the traditional English dessert strawberries and cream.

Cream cheese and white chocolate chips combine with the strawberry cake mix to produce a heavenly flavor. And the cookies are pretty, too.

Even better, the recipe calls for just 6 ingredients. In less than 10 minutes, the cookies are in the oven. Enjoy!

Prep time: 10 minutes
Bake time: 8-9 minutes
Makes about 2 ½ - 3 dozen cookies

Craftsy: DIY for Free for 7 Days

Craftsy: if you like to make or bake or build or create – or if you’re into DIY – you’ll want to spend some time wandering around Craftsy’s site for ideas.

I confess that I nearly go on overload when I log on. It’s so much fun! You can watch free Craftsy classes with lifetime access and downloadable tutorials. Just tune in on your own schedule and re-watch as often as you like. Plus find plenty of support along the way in chat forums with fellow enthusiasts in quilting, knitting, crochet, paper craft, embroidery, photography, gardening, spinning, woodworking, baking, cooking, jewelry making…

Yes, there’s a tutorial for that, plus Craftsy pros also offer independent designer patterns and forums, too.

One thing I like to do is regularly check Craftsy’s free classes and the daily clearance on supplies (it changes all the time as clearance items go out of stock and new supplies go on sale).

If you find you are addicted to Craftsy you can get a 7 day free trial of Craftsy Unlimited that gives you all kinds of extra goodies and discount benefits.

Have fun. I know I will.
