Strawberry Cake Mix Heart-Shaped Valentine Cookies

Strawberry Cake Mix Heart-Shaped Valentine Cookies - Incredibly easy to make and absolutely delicious! The perfect treat to make to celebrate Valentine's Day!

Share the love of all things delicious with these strawberry cake mix heart-shaped Valentine cookies! They really are quite divine (they’re super chewy and moist!), and when you find out how easy they are to make, you’ll want to bake several batches!

Here’s how I get the perfectly-shaped hearts:

After you make the batter, you spread it out as evenly as possible on a non-stick baking pan. You don’t need to worry about some holes in the dough (see below) – they’ll fill in as the cookie dough bakes. I just try to spread it as evenly as possible.

Bake the cookie dough for 12 minutes at 350. The edges will be slightly golden, but the entire gigantic baked cookie blob will still be very soft and chewy.

Allow the dough to cool a bit before you begin cutting out the hearts – probably about 10-15 minutes. Then get your heart-shaped cookie cutter and begin cutting!

They always just come right off the pan for me, but use a spatula to help you out if you need it.

And now for the real reason we love these cookies: all those in-between pieces! I love making shaped cookies because of the in-betweens, and since the in-betweens aren’t technically cookies, they don’t technically have calories.

I’m pretty sure that’s how that works.
