Lemon Cookies

My sister comes over a lot, so much so that my kids will normally ask where she is when she isn't around.  If she's not hanging around the kids, she's baking in my kitchen.  Last month, she decided to try out this Lemon Cookie recipe. It's a super easy recipe that makes a chewy lemony cookie.  I thought the cookie went perfectly with a cup of tea.

Lemon Cookies

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

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
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.

Bake for 6 to 9 minutes in the preheated oven. The bottoms will be light brown, and the insides chewy.



  1. These are AMAZING I stumbled across this recipe randomly and they came out fantastic!! I used the Betty Crocker Super Moist Lemon cake mix and it is a 15.25oz box and it still worked perfectly.

    THANK YOU for this idea!!


  2. How many cookies will one batch make? I'm in a cookie exchange and I need about 6 dozen!

    1. I think it only makes 2-3 dozen depending upon the size.
