These are a fun addition to my yearly Christmas cookie bunch! They are super easy to make and add a little zing to the other cookies! (browneyedbaker.com)
1 box lemon cake mix
1/3 cup oil
zest of 2 lemons
2 tbsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp lemon extract
1/3 cup powdered sugar
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
In a large mixing bowl stir the cake mix, eggs, oil, lemon zest, lemon juice, and lemon extract until well blended.
Place the powdered sugar in a bowl.
Take the dough and roll into small 1 inch balls.
Drop each cookie ball into the powdered sugar until coated and place on the cookie sheet.
Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the edges are lightly brown. It is important not to over cook these. They should stay yellow and soft. Cool for 2-3 minutes on the cookies sheet before transferring to a cooling rack. These are one of my favorite cookies! Enjoy!
