La La Lemon Cookies!

Let me introduce to you the easiest peasiest lemony squeeziest cookie known to human.  All you need is a box of lemon cake mix, some lemon extract (or lemon juice) and some other basic ingredients you probably already have!  These are so perfect for a summer going into fall BBQ, potluck, baby shower, or really… any party!  And these sure do satisfy any prego lady with a lemon craving.  😉

Easy Lemon Cookies (from Allrecipes)


  • 1 (18.25 ounce) package lemon cake mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon lemon extract
  • 1/3 cup confectioners’ sugar for decoration


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Pour cake mix into a large bowl. Stir in eggs, oil, and lemon extract until well blended. Drop teaspoonfuls 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.
  3. Bake for 6 to 9 minutes in the preheated oven. The bottoms will be light brown, and the insides chewy

    YUM! I make some VERY similar to this, except I melt cream cheese frosting and drizzle it on top. It’s heaven! Seriously, please try it! 🙂 Just make sure you don’t use the whipped frosting. It doesn’t work.
