These cookies are great!! If you like lemon bars or lemon poppy seed cake, you've GOT to try these. The rice krispies are a nice touch too. YUM YUM!

I made these y'day evening. I used orange cake mix instead of lemon. I substituted the butter with margarine and did not use the grated lemon rind. These cookies turned out fabulous! The colour and taste was exceptional. Everyone at home, especially my mom, loved these. Thanks alot for the recipe!

These cookies are very easy to make and very tasty! If you want a little more lemon taste drizzle cooled cookies with lemon icing made of 1 c confectioners sugar and 2 Tbls of fresh lemon juice mixed till smooth. Very tasty!!

EASY is an understatement for these little jewels! Fantastic in every way...taste, color, texture - all wonderful. And all from ONE BOWL, to boot! The dough is easy to work with and I'm sure will freeze well (I'm hoping to have enough left to freeze for my Christmas trays!). This is the first time I've used a cake mix for a base and I'm looking forward to trying Maple Crisp Cookies by Inez Willenborg (#21770) since it is a similar recipe. Cookie-making just took on a new dimension for me :) Thanks, Karen!

I loved this recipe but I like softer & chewy cookies. These were very crunchy. I made them with orange cake mix and were great tasting.I gave them away as Christmas gifts along with other cookies and everyone at school loved them.

Fabulous recipe Karen! I used a .5 ounce / 39 mm cookie scoop and I got exactly 36 (3 dozen) cookies. These cookies were nice and chewy on the inside with lots of crunch on the outside, and oh so lemoneeeeeeeeee! I'm submitting a photo in gratitude of such a easy and tasty cookie. Thanks again Karen!

Easy, quick & delicious. The rice krispie cereal added a nice crunchy texture that complimented the lemon flavor nicely. We took deniseP advice & drizzled lemon icing on top. A great touch. Thank you
