I made these for a friend who loves her some strawberry and these do not disappoint. You just better love you some too...if not, you may have a
complete slight aversion to these. They are the perfect treat for the long summer nights.
1 box strawberry cake mix
1/3 cup oil
1/4 cup water
strawberry cream pudding
4-6 oz cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
2 tbsp heavy whipping cream
Preheat oven to 350'
Mix together dry cake mix, oil, eggs and water
I normally use a round TBSP to place on cookie sheet, but you can also use a round TSP to make them bite size and get more out of it. Bake 8-9 minutes
For the filling
Cream softened cream cheese on low for 1 minute to get fluffy, add the pudding packet and 2 tbsp whipping cream, beat until fully incorporated and slowly add the remaining whipping cream and beat until peaks begin to form. or for alternate version, prepare the pudding w/1 cup cold milk and mix w/cool whip. Place in fridge for hour to let either version set up.
Once the cookies have cooled, lay one cookie flat, top it w/the filling and then place it's partner on top.
I think next time I may incorporate fresh strawberries into the filling. May as well make use while they're still in season.
