Lemon Cake Mix Cookies
"Lemon Cake Mix Cookies are soft & delicious lemon cookies made using a Lemon Cake Mix, butter and eggs. Topped with a sweet lemon glaze, this quick & easy lemon cake mix cookie recipe is the best! I love stocking up on all of the cake mixes once per year during the case lot sales. Chocolate, vanilla, funfetti, lemon, strawberry.. you name it, this recipe works! Always having a cake mix on hand means always being 20 minutes away from warm, absolutely drool-inducing, delicious cookies. Today I’ve elevated the Cake Mix Cookie a bit by adding a lemon glaze. Not only does it take the look of the cookie up about 10 notches, the flavor is out of this world!"
Preparation Time10 min
Cooking Time6 min
- 1 15.25oz box of lemon cake mix
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup butter, melted
- 3 tablespoons butter, softened (for the icing)
- 3 cups powdered sugar (for the icing)
- 1 tablespoon milk (for the icing)
- 1 teaspoon lemon extract (for the icing)
Preheat the oven to 350°. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and set aside
Using an electric mixer, combine the cake mix and eggs. The texture of the mixture will be similar to wet sand.
Add the melted butter to the cake mix and egg mixture. Combine until smooth. The cookie dough will be very thick and slightly sticky.
Allow the cookie dough to rest for a couple of minutes, this will make scooping and rolling easier. Scoop the cookie dough and then roll each ball to smooth the edges before arranging them on the parchment paper lined cookie sheet.
Bake at 350° for 8-10 minutes, pulling them out when the cookies are puffy and the tops are no longer glossy. Let cool for 3-4 minutes on the cookie sheet, then transfer them to a cooling rack.
To make the icing, combine all of the icing ingredients using an electric mixer until smooth. Spoon and spread a small amount of icing onto each slightly warm cookie.
