lemon cookies, Light and Chewy Lemon Cookies, Joyful Homemaking
 

I was going to post a lemon bread recipe this week, but after making it, I decided it wasn’t up to par, and I want to tweak it to make it richer tasting. So I am reposting a delicious light and fresh tasting lemon cookie that I first posted almost a year ago before I had many of you as followers. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did…

These cookies are DELICIOUS!

Also they are as easy as could be.
INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 box lemon cake mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup of oil
  • 1 teaspoon of lemon flavoring
  • powdered sugar for rolling the cookies in

DIRECTIONS:

  • Mix together the cake mix, eggs, oil and flavoring.
  • Scoop small spoonfuls into balls and roll them in the powdered sugar.
  • Lightly spray cookie sheet with cooking spray or  use parchment paper to keep them from sticking and getting too brown on the bottom.

I had bought some lemon frosting thinking I would frost them, but these cookies did not need it.  They were perfect just the way they were, light and lemony and great for spring, summer or anytime!

  8. I am going to make these! I need to bring cookies to a recital on Sunday and I have no time for anything complicated, so these will be perfect! Thanks for sharing.

  9. My Aunt makes these, she holds her recipes with a tight grip, but I knew she used cake mix. She would use different flavored cake mixes. One time I asked her for the recipe and she said no, pfffft. LOL! So then I said to her, is it hard to put the cake mix in the bowl and she looked at me all flushed. She boasted how they were all from scratch. Nonetheless I love using cake mix and I know that these cookies are very yummy and they are definitely soft and chewy! I found your blog from a blog hop and I am a new follower. Please stop by anytime. Thank you for sharing this recipe. I love making them!

    Warmest Regards,
    Annamaria
