The cookies are a perfect blend of sweet and citrusy. They're an excellent choice for a quick treat, and they make a great choice for baby showers and bridal showers. They're made with a cake mix, so they're easy to whip up, which is why they're called "whippers."

During baking, the cookies will flatten and get a bit of a crackled appearance on top.

How to Make Lemon Whippers


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat baking sheets with cooking spray or line with parchment paper; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine cake mix, lemon zest, whipped topping, and egg; mix well. Chill dough about 30 minutes (which makes it easier to shape the dough).
  3. Using a cookie scoop to scoop dough, about 1 teaspoon of dough for each. Shape dough into balls. Roll in confectioners' sugar and place on baking sheets about 2 inches apart.
  4. Bake 8 to 10 minutes, or until golden.
  5. Cool 1 minute on baking sheets, then remove to wire racks to cool completely.
