Simple Lemon Cookies

This Simple Lemon Cookies recipe is just lovely! When I need a few moments to relax, I make myself a nice cup of hot tea and then need a cookie. There is something so soothing about tea and cookies, that just taking a moment to think about it relaxes me.

While pretty much any freshly baked cookie will do, one of my favorite is a cookie made with this Lemon Cookie Recipe from cake mix.

I have tasted many a lemon cookie in my lifetime. I like lemon bars, but sometimes I just long for something a little less sweet. One of my all time favorites was the Lemon Pastry Creme cookie that the Girl Scouts made several years ago.

I am still waiting for the Girl Scouts to bring those back.

At least, I can hope.

In the meantime, I make these super simple lemon cookies using a boxed lemon cakes mix.

This lemon cookie recipe is easy and tasty!


They are so simple and perfect for brunch, or tea.

Lemon Cookies

1 box lemon cake mix

2 eggs

1/2 cup butter (1 stick) softened

2 tablespoons powdered sugar (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Combine listed ingredients and spoon by rounded teaspoons onto cookie sheet. Bake 8-10 minutes. Let cool a few minutes before removing from sheet. You can sprinkle them with a touch of powdered sugar, if you wish.

No one will know that you made these from a cake mix, at least from my experience. You can keep that part a secret or share the recipe, I leave it up to you!
