If you like strawberry crunch ice cream bars or strawberry shortcake ice cream bars, then you'll love these Strawberry Crunch Cookies!

These homemade cookies are big, chewy and full of strawberry flavor! The buttercream frosting along with the golden oreo and strawberry jello crunch on top is just fantastic.

They're great for parties, bake sales or if you need something to cure your sweet tooth. Since these cookies are rather large, we usually eat a half a cookie at a time. The go perfect with a glass of milk, coffee or tea.

Strawberry crunch ice cream bars have always been a favorite of mine. I don't eat much ice cream anymore, so these cookies are the perfect substitute!

Strawberry Crunch Cookies


  • Cookies:
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons seedless strawberry preserves or jam
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Frosting:
  • 2 sticks butter, softened (1 cup)
  • 6 cups powdered sugar
  • Strawberry Crunch Topping:
  • 20 golden oreos
  • 1 - 3 ounce package strawberry jello
  • ¼ cup melted butter


  1. In a large bowl cream together the butter and granulated sugar with an electric mixer until fluffy.
  2. Beat in the eggs, strawberry preserves and vanilla until combined.
  3. Add in the flour, baking powder and salt. Mix until just combined. The dough will be very crumbly.
  4. Divide the dough into 12 equal portions and form each portion into a ball.
  5. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  6. Meanwhile preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  7. Bake the cookies on a parchment lined baking sheet for 15-18 minutes. You want the edges to just be golden brown, while the cookie is still chewy.
  8. Cool 5 minutes on the baking sheet, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
  9. Meanwhile make the frosting for topping.
  10. Using an electric mixer, whip the butter until fluffy.
  11. Add in the powdered sugar and beat to combine.
  12. Spread the frosting on the cooled cookies.
  13. Next make the strawberry crunch topping.
  14. In a large ziploc bag crush the oreos until they are crumbs.
  15. Add the oreo crumbs, jello mix and melted butter to a bowl. Stir to combine.
  16. Press the strawberry crunch topping all over the cookies.


Add a splash of milk if the frosting is too thick.

If the dough is too crumbly to form into balls, add a tablespoon of water. 

Store these cookies in an airtight container for up to three days.
