This is an easy recipe that produces a tart and soft cookie. I believe that it was clipped from a Taste of Home magazine several years ago.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (18 ounce) package lemon cake mix with pudding
  • 2 14 cups frozen whipped topping, thawed (about 8 oz)
  • 1 egg
  • confectioners' sugar


  1. In a mixing bowl, combine cake mix, whipped topping and egg.
  2. Beat with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended.
  3. Batter will be VERY sticky -- and I can't even begin to tell you how sticky it is. :).
  4. Drop by teaspoonfuls into confectioner's sugar; roll lightly to coat.
  5. Place on ungreased cookie sheets.
  6. Bake at 350F for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned on edges.

YUMMMMM!!!! I loved the fact that these cookies not only start w/a cake mix but only require 3 other ingrdients. They are very pretty & taste great. I am going to put these in my christmas cookie trays.

Very easy and tastes a bit like lemon bars without the pastry. My airbake cookie sheets took a little longer- 14 minutes to bake.
