Frequently Asked Questions about this Copycat Strawberry Crumbl Cookie recipe

Can I use heavy whipping cream if I don’t have half-and-half?

Yes, but you may need a bit more. Start by using the 2 Tbsp. plus 1 tsp. called for in the recipe, and add 1 additional tsp. of heavy cream at a time until a thick, but spreadable consistency. If you’re planning to pipe the icing in a swirl pattern, you may need less cream overall. You want the Icing, in that case, to be slighter thicker.

If I can’t find a strawberry cake mix, what do you recommend?

Based on the success I had with this Strawberry Cake, I would recommend using a white or yellow boxed cake mix and adding a small envelope of dry strawberry jello mix.

Why does the recipe specify to garnish with fresh strawberries just before serving? Why can’t I garnish them as soon as the cookies are iced?

These cookies can be stored at room temperature, but if you add the fresh strawberry garnish, the strawberry will go bad before the cookies go stale. For best results garnish just before serving. (Although, these cookies are so delicious, you likely won’t have leftovers for long!)

Can I make this Strawberry Crumbl Cookie recipe as smaller cookies?

Yes. Use a small cookie scoop, and check for doneness around 8 to 10 minutes. These cookies benefit from being pulled from the oven just before being completely set, and then firming up on the baking sheet in the 10 minutes of on-pan cooling.

  • Author: Regan at This Baking Life
  • Total Time: 45 min
  • Yield: 8 cookies



  • 1 (15.25-oz.) box strawberry cake mix
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 2 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar


  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. strawberry jam
  • 2 Tbsp. plus 1 tsp. half-and-half
  • Sliced fresh strawberries (optional)


  1. Prepare the Cookies: Beat cake mix, butter, and eggs in a large bowl with a hand mixer or in a stand mixer fitted with paddle attachment. Cover, and place dough in refrigerator to chill until firm, about 20 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet or cookie sheet with a silpat baking mat or parchment paper; set aside.

  2. Portion chilled dough into 8 (1/4-cup) balls using a large ice cream or cookie scoop. Place 1/3 cup powdered sugar in a small bowl. Roll each dough ball in powdered sugar.

  3. Space 4 dough balls out evenly on lined baking sheet, and gently press down on tops of each dough ball with the palm of your hand to create thick disks. (Cookies will spread into large cookies, like the classic “crumbl” giant cookie size.)

  4. Bake in preheated oven until edges are set, centers are no longer doughy, and top of each cookie has a crackled appearance, about 14 minutes bake time.

  5. Let cool on pan until set, about 10 minutes. Carefully transfer to a wire rack to let cool completely. Repeat process with remaining cookie dough (discard unused powdered sugar in bowl.)

  6. While cookies cool on cooling rack, prepare the Icing: Place 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar in a medium bowl; add strawberry jam and half-and-half. Stir until smooth. Spoon a heaping spoonful of Icing onto top of the cookie, and spread evenly. Repeat process with remaining Icing and cookies. (Alternatively, place Icing in a piping bag, and pipe in a circular swirl pattern to create a classic “crumbl” cookie top.) Garnish each of the baked cookies with a strawberry slice, as desired, just before serving. (Icing will harden as cookies stand.) Store leftover, ungarnished cookies in an airtight container.
