This easy lemon cake mix cookies recipe is so simple even kids can make it. Make a batch when life gives you lemons.

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 2 minutes
Cook Time: 13 minutes

Here's how to make them:

  1. Place the cake mix, egg and whipped topping in a bowl. Mix until dough is well blended and cake mix is absorbed. 
  2. Place the powdered sugar in a shallow dish or on a plate.
  3. Form the dough into round 1-inch balls. Roll each ball in powdered sugar. Place cookies on ungreased baking sheets 2 inches apart.
  4. Bake cookies for 9 to 12 minutes, one baking sheet at a time, until cookies are set. Cookie surfaces will appear crinkled. Do not over bake.
  5. Remove cookie sheets from the oven. Allow cookies to sit for 1 minute before using a spatula to transfer them to a wire rack. Cool completely. Store cookies in an airtight container.

I am obsessed with lemon right now. This recipe is so easy and looks amazing. Can't wait to make it. Thank you, Kathy Widenhouse !
Disclaimer I don't bake much. I tried this. There is no oven temperature so I guessed 325. I found the dough very hard to work with, it stuck to my hands and the spatula much moreso than to itself. My 1st tray came out with the consistency of whole wheat bread. I turned up the heat on the second to 350. These were starting to burn when I took them out but still not like the photo.

It was so dumb says make sure not to over bake but gave no oven temperature.

I’ll try baking at 350. Mine looks more like a pour batter, I used a lemon pound cake mix 🙏. I’m baking in a 8x8 instead. Fingers crossed!!
