I have been in search of a good lemon cookie recipe. I still haven’t found The Lemon Cookie Recipe. The one were the cookie is not hard but not so soft it falls apart in your hand. Until I find that recipe I will share all the others I try in my search.
This one I decided to try because I just happened to have a box of lemon cake mix. The recipe was similar to a crinkle cookie. I made the two batches following the directions. Oh how I love the taste of lemon. Oh how the lemon taste in this cookie was too much. To try to tone it down the last batch I baked crinkle cookie style. They were good but still the lemon was too strong. These cookies are very soft and will fall to pieces easily.
The original recipe called for a lemon icing. I decided to go with a lime icing to try to balance the flavors. In my opinion it worked.
The husband tried the cookies, he said they were okay. He is not a lemon fan. Which was good for me. I had lemon cookies all week long. For first break at work, last break and for dessert after dinner. I was a very happy Gotha.
1 box lemon cake mix
1/3 cup oil
Mix ingredients by hand.
Set in freezer to harden.
Roll into 1 inch balls.
Place on greased cookie sheet
Bake at 375* for 7-8 minutes.
Cool and frost with lemon or lime frosting.
Lime Frosting (or lemon)
4 cups of confectioners’ sugar
1/3 cup fresh lime juice
3 tablespoons of water or milk (I prefer milk)
Mix until smooth. Spoon over cookies.
Some I covered heavily with frosting others much less.
Thank you for joining me on another Pinteresting adventure. Hopefully one day I will find that perfect lemon cookie.
