Just made these delicious Lemon cookies from Gimme Some Oven. Of course I picked them because a) I wanted something "healthy" (p.s. they aren't) and b) they are super duper easy. They start out as cake mix and end up as cookies. WIN.
Find the recipe here, or read below.
All you need is...
-1 package lemon cake mix (I used Duncan Hines)
-1/3 cup vegetable oil
-juice of half a lemon (about 1 Tbsp.)
-zest of half a lemon (about 1 tsp.)
-1/3 cup powdered sugar for decor (optional)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees- Pour cake mix into a large bowl & stir in eggs, oil, lemon juice & zest and blend-Form dough into small balls and drop into a bowl of confectioners' sugar (if you are having trouble rolling the balls, refrigerate the batter for 10 minutes)- Roll them around until they are lightly covered- place on a lightly-greased cookie sheet (slightly squish them)- Bake for 6-9 minutes.
They should be crispy on the outside & nice and chewy on the inside. Enjoy!
