Easy Lemon Cookies

Oct 3 2007 - 12:09pm

Note: I added a bit of pudding to mine, it was too runny and I had to add more flour to balance it out. This recipe is the standard recipe, and should come out fantastic, I don't think there is any need for the extra pudding. However, if you want to make it exactly like I did, the modified parts are in brackets.

1 (18.25 ounce) package lemon cake mix
2 eggs
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon lemon extract
1/3 cup confectioners' sugar for decoration
[1/4 cup lemon pudding — I used Jell-o instant pudding]

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Pour cake mix into a large bowl. Stir in eggs, oil, and lemon extract until well blended. [Add pudding, if it's too runny add flour until consistency is firm enough to make balls — even if they do get flattened out immediately.]
  3. Drop teaspoonfuls of dough into a bowl of confectioners' sugar. Roll them around until they're lightly covered.
  4. Once sugared, put them on an ungreased cookie sheet.
  5. Bake for 6 to 9 minutes in the preheated oven. [I baked for 11-13 minutes]. The bottoms will be light brown, and the insides chewy.
