Sunshine Lemon Cake Mix Cookies

Kimi Gaines


I am having so much fun coming up with creative ways to use cake mixes and bake almost homemade cookies. I wanted to make a cookie that reminded me of Sunshine Brand Lemon Coolers which are not made anymore. Found some at the dollar store, but didn't come close. These came pretty close and would be great for a ladies get together.
