This Simple Lemon Cookies recipe makes the loveliest light, lemon cookies!
Hello Friends! Hope you are having a great week and staying warm. It has been chilly here and there is nothing that warms me up like a cup of hot steaming tea. Of course, I also need a little something to go with it and today I am sharing the perfect cookie recipe when you want a light, sweet treat. 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 favorites is a cookie made with this Lemon Cookie Recipe from a cake mix.
This is an updated recipe from a couple of years ago.
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.
They are so simple and perfect for brunch, or tea.
1 box lemon cake mix
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!
Have one with me won’t you? Do you drink hot tea? What is your favorite flavor?
I am always for a good shortcut and using a cake mix to make these cookies is a good one. Everyone loves these cookies!
By the way, I have another really good cookie recipe from a cake mix, it is these Easy Peanut Butter Cookies. I just love these and the recipe is so easy it is silly! Try them out sometime when you need a quick cookie recipe.
