These cake mix lemon cookies are THE BOMB!
They are delectable, soft, and lemony cookies that are perfect for the summer time. Taking a bite of these cake mix lemon cookies makes me want to grab a pina colada and relax on the beach. I made these for a party and the overwhelming comments were how they “melted right in your mouth”!
These cookies not only taste absolutely amazing but, they are made with ONLY 3 INGREDIENTS! Seriously, what beats a 3 ingredient cookie recipe? Plus these cookies taste and look completely homemade but in reality, it only takes 5 minutes to whip up!
For the ingredients, I used Duncan Hines Lemon Supreme Cake Mix, 2 eggs, and 1/3 cup of canola oil. That comes to a total of about $2 to make 24 delicious cookies!
The instructions are easy! You simply mix all three ingredients together in a medium-sized mixing bowl until a sticky dough is formed and all the ingredients are combined. THAT’S IT!
Then using your hands grab about a tablespoon of dough and roll it into a ball (they should be about an inch by an inch big). Then place the ball on a cookie sheet. Continue this until you have 12 cookies spread out on the cookie sheet.
*Optional you can roll your cookie balls in powdered sugar for a slightly sweeter taste and more colorful presentation.
Then bake your cookies for 7-9 minutes at 375 degrees Fahrenheit or until the tops are cracking and the edges are just barely golden. For softer cookies cook for 7 minutes and for a very slight crunch on the edges cook for 9 minutes.
There you have it, easy cake mix lemon cookies straight from a box mix, that taste completely homemade.
