Lemon Poppyseed Cookies
"Lemon Poppyseed Cookies are easily made with a lemon cake mix, lemon zest, poppy seeds, eggs and butter. The lemon glaze on top is simple and delicious too! Spring is the time for all things lemon and these Lemon Poppyseed Cookies are absolutely perfect. I love cookies that start with a cake mix because they are just so easy. Adding lemon zest to the cookies and the lemon glaze adds just the right amount of lemon flavor. I’ve never even thought about adding poppy seeds to cookies before, but I love lemon poppyseed bread and muffins, so why not?! The poppy seeds add a little bit of flavor and a wonderful texture to the cookies."
Cooking Time10 min
- 1 box lemon cake mix
- 1 cup butter, melted
- 2 eggs
- 2 tablespoons lemon zest
- 3 tablespoons poppy seeds
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 1 teaspoon lemon zest
- 3 tablespoons lemon juice
In a mixing bowl, add the lemon cake mix, the butter and the eggs. Mix together until well combined.
Add the lemon zest and poppy seeds and mix.
Scoop out the cookies with a cookie scoop and place about 2" apart on a prepared cookie sheet. I prefer to use silicone baking mats because the cookies don't stick at all which makes clean up so easy!
Bake cookies at 350° for about 10 minutes, just until the centers look to be completely set. Once cookies are done, wait 2-3 minutes and then transfer them to wire racks to cool. Once the cookies are cooled, you can frost them with a lemon glaze if desired, or you can just eat them as is!
Use a fork to mix the powdered sugar, lemon zest and lemon juice together. Add a little bit more lemon juice if you want a runnier consistency, less if you prefer the glaze to be thicker. If you want a more subtle lemon flavor, replace some of the lemon juice with milk.
