I'm not sure where I got this recipe, but something tells me it was on the side of the cake box. Extremely easy to make and they look beautiful. And of course, they are very tasty too. Especially if you love lemon.

How to Make Easiest Lemon Cookies

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  2. Pour cake mix into a large bowl. Stir in eggs, oil and lemon exract. Blend together until no dry particles are visible. Batter will be very dense.
  3. Drop teaspoonfuls of dough into a bowl of confectioners' sugar. Roll dough around until they are lightly covered. Once sugared, place on an ungreased cookie sheet.
  4. Bake for approximately 9 minutes. The bottoms will be light brown, the insides chewy and will seem undone when you touch them. Check the bottoms.
