Ever wonder what to do with lots of lemons?
Recently I’ve shared a few other cookies from cake mix recipes (Carrot Cake Cookies, Red Velvet Cookies, Soft Gingerbread Cookies) and I just couldn’t help myself- I had to share my absolute favorite cake mix cookie.
Hope you love them as much as I do!
How to make lemon cookies:
- Melt your butter
- Add butter, cake mix, eggs, zest, and lemon juice in a bowl and mix until combined.
- Roll each cookie in powdered sugar then place on parchment lined baking sheet.
- Bake for 9-11 minutes.
How to store lemon cookies:
Store cookies in an airtight container. They will last for week if so!
Are these meyer lemon crinkle cookies?
They are if you use meyer lemons for the zest and juice. That simple!
Do I have to roll them in powdered sugar?
Powdered sugar gives the cookie a nice crinkle cookie effect. However, it isn’t necessary for a delicious cookie and you can even whip up some lemon frosting (make some vanilla buttercream and add lemon extract to it) for an over the top lemon cookie!
Any way you make these lemon cookies will be great!
Originally, I tried making these cookies in the 3-2-1 lemon cookie way- where you combine 3 eggs, 2 packages cake mix, whipped topping, and 1 cup of powdered sugar. And that resulted in very flat cookies.
So, I figured I’d remove the whipped topping and tweak a few more things with the recipe- and you know what?
I love my version even more!
These cookies have just the right amount of lemony flavor, are so easy to make, and really are so delicious!
