    Thanks for linking to my Double Chocolate Coconut Cookies. And I’m so glad you listed the strawberry cookies. I’ve got a strawberry cake mix in the pantry that has been waiting for inspiration. I think this may be it.

    Was anyone else able to get the Funfetti link to work. I can get to the page, but then I’m requested to sign in and then it will take me to the page I’m looking for. Only, I can’t find anywhere on that website to join it. A search of the site lists cookies from a cake mix, but again, when I try to look at it, I get the same sign in to website to look at this page error.

      Hi Darlene, it seems the recipe is password protected at the moment…likely an error? I’ll check it in a few days and switch out the link to a different recipe if there’s still a problem. Thanks for the heads up!

      Update: I switched the link to another website’s recipe, it’s working now 🙂
