This month I had made some Valentine sugar cookies and Cherry Almond cupcakes early in the month since I was going to be working crazy hours during the week of Valentine's Day.
Well, they have pretty much all been consumed so I made up some quick and easy lemon cookies this morning.
I have been making this recipe for years now. It came from my Cake Mix Magic book and I have made variations of this recipe a few times, along with the lemon flavour.
1 box lemon cake mix
1/2 cup butter/margarine, melted
1 tsp lemon juice
Heat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix cake mix, egg, melted butter and lemon juice in large bowl. Mix with wooden spoon until well blended.
Shape dough into 1 inch balls and roll in granulated sugar. Place on greased baking sheets and press flat with bottom of a glass dipped in sugar.
Bake for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned around the edges. Cool 1 minute on baking sheets or until firm, then transfer cookies to wire racks and cool completely.
These cookies are addictive and everyone I have made them for asks for the recipe. They are chewy on the inside and the outside has a nice crunch. If you're looking to whip up some cookies and have limited ingredients on hand, these cookies are perfect!
