(Don't Eat The) Yellow Snowman Cookies

"Everyone knows you shouldn't eat yellow snow, but kids and grownups alike will get a kick out of making an exception in this case. This is an original recipe, developed with love to celebrate the snow on my son's January birthday! Quick, easy and fun to make on a snowy day, lemon cake mix is a shortcut to tangy cookies that look as sweet as they taste. These snowmen will disappear even faster than the fellas outdoors!"

    A pretty decent cookie made out of a cake mix! Nice lemon flavor and coconut is always an added bonus! The dough is a bit stickier to work with than a "normal" cookie dough, but definitely do-able! Made for LiveSTRONG day. Thanks for posting!

    These are great cookies. I saw the lemon cake mix with coconut, and knew it was for me.....and I am HAPPY! I just made normal sized cookies, and rolled them in the coconut, but didnt put them together for a snowman. THe are very sweet and have a crunchy, but soft texture. I will definetely make these again. THanks for sharing!
