These cookies have been around my family for ages. They are easy to make, they look great, and they taste fantastic. You can choose to make lemon, strawberry, or orange cookies and all you have to change is the cake mix! I’ve tried this recipe with a chocolate cake mix and was not impressed with the results so I’d stick to more fruit flavors if I were you.
I decided to make lemon cookies this go around because we were eating BBQ for dinner and I thought lemon would compliment the tangy BBQ sauce perfectly. Delicious as always!
Cake Mix Cookies
Servings: 45ish cookies
Time: 20 minutes
1 box cake mix (lemon, strawberry, or orange)
1 8 oz. tub of cool whip
powdered sugar for rolling
Preheat oven to 350°. Mix first 3 ingredients.
Dough will be sticky. Refrigerate for a few minutes if it is too sticky to work with. Roll spoonfuls of dough into 1/2 inch balls and roll balls in powdered sugar to coat.
Place on a greased cookie sheet and bake 10-12 minutes, or until barely browned along the edges.
Cool on a wire cooling rack. Yum!
- I put misshapen blobs of dough into powdered sugar and roll them into a ball while rolling them in the sugar. This sometimes helps tame the stickiness.
