There's something about a great lemon cookie that always makes us reach for a second helping (or third?). If you feel the same way, then you've got to give these Lemon Snowflake Cookies a try!

These light, crisp, lemony cookies simply melt in your mouth. They transform a chilly winter day into a sunny holiday paradise.

They also practically make themselves, as they only require a few ingredients (including one of our favorites: cake mix).

You can even encourage the kids to help out with this one! They will love the ingredients list and the pretty look of the finished lemon cookies.

Lemon Snowflake Cookies Recipe


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

  2. In a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine the cake mix, whipped topping, egg, and lemon zest. Mix on medium-high speed for 3 minutes, until well combined, pausing once to scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl.

  3. Put the confectioners’ sugar in a small bowl. Using a cookie scoop, shape the dough into 1-ich balls. Roll each ball in the sugar and place on baking sheet 5 inches apart.

  4. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, until lightly brown.

  5. Cool completely on wire rack, for 10 to 15 minutes, before removing from the pans.
