Easy Lemon Cookies

We're going to some friend's this afternoon to watch the last session of General Conference. They asked us to bring dessert and so I was wanting to make something that was simple and that we had ingredients around the house for. I was going to bring the leftovers of the Pioneer Woman Sheet Cake (below) and needed something else to have enough for everyone. Anyways, I found this recipe on Allrecipes. It had gotten 5 out of 5 stars from 268 people. They're nice and soft inside with a little bit of gooey crunch on the outside. If you like lemon bars--you'll like these. They are yummy!

Easy Lemon Cookies from

1 (18.25 oz) package lemon cake mix

2 eggs

1/3 C vegetable oil

1 teaspoon lemon extract (we used 1 T lemon juice)

1/3 C powdered sugar for decoration

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

2. Pour cake mix into a large bowl. Stir in eggs, oil, and lemon extract until well blended.

Drop teasponfuls of dough into a bowl of powdered sugar. Roll them around until they're lightly covered. Once sugared, put them on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 6-9 minutes in the preheated oven. The bottoms will be lightly brown, and the insides chewy. They are the perfect consistency--so soft on the inside. They have a yummy light lemony flavor and the powdered sugar finishes them perfectly!

I'm definitely making these cookies. I love lemon bars, but these sound so much easier. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
