Very easy to make and yummy. Am going to make them for my office Christmas lunch.
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.
I like them but the kids didn't
I rarely use any kind of prepared mix when I'm baking but these intrigued me with the unique combination of ingredients. While they aren't as lemony as some of the "from scratch" recipes I've tried, they are very good and fun to make. If you use two spoons to drop the extremely sticky batter in the powdered sugar, you really don't get any on you at all. I had trouble with my first batch sticking to the cookie sheets, so I sprayed them before the next batch. I especially liked how soft the cookies were and how pretty.
Easy to make, so tasty. Just a few notes. These are good made small and don't spread too much on the baking sheet so they can be baked about 2" apart. I used two forks and had no trouble with the sticky batter. Thanks for posting.
Thanks to Hokies Lady for recommending this recipe to me! It is great!! Also thanks to Meredith K.'s advice about using two forks to shape the sticky batter and putting it into the confectioners' sugar; that works great!
I am making a lot of cookies for a charity event and these fit the bill exactly! Easy, good, not melty or gooey since they will be eaten outside. Don't be afraid of how sticky the batter is; it really isn't hard to work with and the taste of these cookies is nice and lemony. I'm thinking I need to keep cake mix and Cool Whip on hand just in case I need cookies!
Thanks for sharing a great recipe!! (6-24-10)
UPDATE 6-10-11--I made these for the same event this year, but used orange cake mix and also did a batch using devil's food cake mix. They were both really tasty, so don't be afraid to experiment!
Amazing, amazing, amazing! So easy but so rich and flavorful! So happy to have this recipe :)
I made them for me BUT everyone who came near wanted to taste! I scooped the soft dough with an ice cream scoop right into the sugar to make it easier to handle.
Great cookie - a week later and I'm making a second batch! They definitely taste as though a lot of work was put in to them. I, too, chilled the dough before dropping. I used a fork to scoop dough into a bowl of powdered sugar and used sugared fingers to roll the dough into a ball - no issues with stickiness!
