Very light and fun cookies, and so simple! This lovely recipe is again from my Lone Star Legacy Cookbook!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (18 ounce) box lemon cake mix (not with the pudding mixture, any flavor)
  • 1 egg
  • 4 ounces whipped topping (CoolWhip or others will do,about 2 cups)
  • 12 cup powdered sugar


  1. Mix cake mix, egg and whipped topping.
  2. Roll into balls (slightly smaller than ping-pong balls).
  3. Dip in powdered sugar and place on greased baking sheet.
  4. Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes.
  5. You may also try other flavors-- orange or even white cake mix are very good.

I thought these were really good considering how simple and easy they were to make. Just make sure you wet your fingers as I found that the dough was really sticky when trying to roll in balls. Also, I took the advice of another reviewer and baked them at 300 degrees F and for about 13 minutes and they turned out great, very soft and chewy inside with a little crispy outside.
