Lemon Cookies from a Cake Mix–Absolutely YUMMY!!!!!!


This great little cookie couldn’t be easier.  It tastes just like lemon bars, I’m sure it could be baked in a 9 x 13 pan if you don’t want to bother with making cookies.  It’s a keeper recipe, you can stir these up in five minutes.

1 (18.25 ounce) package lemon cake mix
2 eggs
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon lemon extract
zest and juice from one lemon
1/3 cup confectioners' sugar for decoration


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

Pour cake mix into a large bowl. Stir in eggs, oil, zest, juice and lemon extract until well blended. Drop small cookie scopps of dough into a bowl of confectioners' sugar. Roll them around until they're lightly covered. Once sugared, put them on an ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake for 10 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven. The bottoms will be light brown, and the insides chewy.

While they are cooling, put additional powdered sugar in a small colander or sifter and dust the tops again…
