strawberry drop cookies plated

The other day I needed to whip up a batch of cookies and wanted something a little different.

Cake mix cookies are so easy to make and are always so moist, I opted to go with them then added a little strawberry jam for a twist.

It was a very tasty twist, at that.

Drop dough on a cookie sheet, spacing them far enough apart they don't run into each other as they bake. (I lined my pan with parchment because I'm lazy and didn't want to scrape baked on jam off the pan.)

Create an indent in each drop with your thumb and fill with jam.

Strawberry Drops

1 box vanilla cake mix

2 eggs

1/2 cup butter (softened)

1 tsp. vanilla extract

1/2 cup strawberry jam

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix cake mix, eggs, butter and extract until it forms a nice ball of dough.

Drop dough by spoonfuls on a baking sheet. Use your thumb to make a little indentation in the middle of each drop, then spoon in a bit of jam (about 1/2 tsp.) Top with another drop of dough.

Bake for about eight minutes, until dough is set but not brown.

Remove from oven and immediately dust with powdered sugar. Place cookies on rack to cool then indulge and enjoy!
