Recipe by Barbara Steele
READY IN: 17mins
YIELD: 24 cookies


  • Cookie Ingredients
  • 1
    (18 1/2 ounce) box lemon cake mix
  • 13
    cup vegetable oil
  • 2
    large eggs
  • Snowman Decorations
  • decorative candies, as desired for eyes and buttons

  • any colorful tiny round candy sprinkles, for buttons


  • Heat oven to 350°F.
  • In large bowl, combine cake mix, oil and eggs; beat until well mixed.
  • Place coconut in shallow bowl.
  • For each cookie, use a cookie dough scoop to shape a 1-1/2-inch ball for the body, and a melon baller to shape a 1/2-inch ball for the head.
  • Roll each ball in coconut; place on ungreased cookie sheet with smaller ball touching larger ball.
  • Place cookies 1-1/2-inches apart.
  • Bake at 350° for 10-12 minutes or until coconut just begins to brown.
  • Immediately press eyes into head and buttons down the front of the snowman's body for each cookie.
  • Remove from cookie sheet to cool, taking care not to let the head separate from the body!
