Chewy Lemon Cookies


This is the first time i’ve ever made lemon cookies, and they are delicious!  I found the recipe on, but used butter instead of vegetable oil, making them richer.  For something that came out of a cake mix, these are fantastic.  They took about 5 minutes to prep and 10 minutes to bake — super easy.  Give them a try!


Lemon Cookies

Makes 2 dozen small cookies

1 18.25 oz. box of lemon cake mix

2 eggs

1/3 cup melted butter (or vegetable oil)

1 teaspoon lemon extract (optional)

1/2 cup powdered sugar, for coating.

1. Preheat the oven to 375

2. Beat the eggs slightly, then add them into a big bowl with the cake mix, eggs, and lemon extract.  Mix.

3. Once a dough has formed, use a spoon to make little balls.  Roll each ball in the powdered sugar until coated.  Place onto an ungreased cookies sheet.

4. Cook for about 9 minutes or until the cookies set.  Enjoy!
