How to make lemon cake mix cookies:
Preheat oven to 350F. Spray Cookie sheet with non-stick cooking spray.
In a large bowl, mix together cake mix, cool whip and egg. The mix will be VERY fluffy. Just keep mixing until well combined.
Use a small cookie scoop or two spoons to drop rounded cookie dough into powdered sugar.
Roll dough ball until completely covered. Set cookies on cookie sheet, about 2 inches apart.
Bake at 350F for 8 minutes or until very lightly golden around the edges.
Let cool on the cookie sheet for a couple of minutes before removing to wire racks to cool completely.
Store at room temperature in airtight container. These are best eaten within a day or two of baking but they probably will be gone long before that if your family loves them as much as we do.
They are just so easy and have the best lemon flavor. You don’t have to top them with a lemon glaze or lemon zest and they still turn out so amazing and delicious.
Tips to make the best lemon cake mix cookies:
I highly recommend using a cookie scoop. You will thank me later because it saves so much time on spooning out the cookies.
Plus, they are not expensive. Amazon has some cookie scoops for very cheap.
I also think they look more uniform when you use a cookie scoop.
I bought the three pack, so I can use the smaller two for cookies and then the bigger one to fill up cupcakes. They will get lots of use and you will be glad you bought them.
Another handy kitchen item I like to use are these baking liners to bake my cookies. Clean up is easy and the cookies turn out perfectly every time!
We use the baking liners all the time so they get a ton of use. They are worth every penny!
You can also use baking sheet with parchment paper.
