  • Use a mild flavored oil like canola or grapeseed.
  • Make sure there are no lumps in the powdered sugar so the frosting comes out smooth.
  • Let the cream cheese come to room temperature before you start to make the frosting so it blends easier.
  • Add a touch of red food dye to the frosting to make it pink as well.
  • Make sure the cookies have cooled before applying the frosting.

FAQs

Can I use a different flavor of cake mix?

I find to get a nice strawberry flavor you really need to use a strawberry cake mix.

How do you store these Crumble cookies?

These Crumbl cookies can be stored in an airtight container for 3-4 days. I like to put them in the fridge so the creamy frosting stays cool and fresh. If your kitchen is hot and humid the icing may melt if you leave them out.

Can I make these strawberry crunch cookies in advance?

Yes, you absolutely can make these strawberry crunch cookies in advance. They will keep nicely in the fridge for a few days.

Can I use milk instead of cream in the frosting?

No, milk will not give you the fluffy texture that heavy cream will.
