Pour cake mix into a large bowl. Stir in eggs, oil, and lemon extract, zest and juice until well blended, stir in coconut (optional). Drop cookie scoops of dough into a bowl of regular ‘ol white sugar (this will help the confectioners sugar stick). Toss the sugar over the ball of dough until coated. Move the ball into the bowl of confectioners sugar, toss ‘em around more. Once sugared, put them on an non-stick (or lined with parchment) cookie sheet.
Bake for 6 to 9 minutes in the preheated oven or until the edges are lightly browned.
