Hi friends! I love making and baking goodies from scratch whenever I can, but sometimes, it’s just a tad easier to take a shortcut — like today, for instance. The kiddos asked what we were having for dessert, and we didn’t really have anything sweet except for some leftover Easter candy, which I’m still trying to ration. After a quick pantry inspection, I found a box of lemon cake mix, so I put the young dessert lovers to work, and we whipped up a batch of these Easy Lemon Crinkle Cookies.
Back in the fall, I found a recipe for cake mix cookies made with Cool Whip, and even though it sounded strange, I gave it a try. We used chocolate cake mix, and the cookies were soft, chewy and super delicious. I made some peppermint crinkle cookies around the holidays, so why not try making lemon cake mix cookies? Or more specifically, lemon cake mix crinkle cookies — say that five times fast.
These cookies are incredibly easy to make, but they are also very messy. Your hands will be covered with cake mix goo, but the results are very worth it! My daughter also managed to get Cool Whip in her hair, but oh well.
- 1 box lemon cake mix, any brand is fine
- 1 8-oz container of Cool Whip or a generic version
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
- Powdered sugar for rolling the cookies in
