    These cookies were awesome! Really simply recipe. Of course lemon cookies is one of my favorites. I been looking for an awesome recipe for soft lemon cookies. I finally found it. I also made them with strawberry cake mix too. They were delicouse and everyone was addicted.

    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.

    These cookies have been in my family for years, so I know how good they are~ My great grandmother used to make them, but she died a few years ago, so I make them myself now. Friends at school often asked me just what kind of drugs I put in them to make them so addicting! I've found that rubbing my hands in powdered sugar makes the dough not stick to my hands, but the process has to be repeated quite a few times. Otherwise, these are perfectly simple cookies and they really gave me a good headstart in my baking.

    This is one of my favorite cookies to make as I love anything lemon and have experimented with this recipe several times. I generally add 2 cups of Cool Whip to the mixture and chill it 30 minutes to make it slightly firm before rolling it into balls. I also don't roll the whippersnappers in powdered sugar before baking, but toss them in a bag of powdered sugar right after they come from the oven. To make a chewier cookie, I turn the oven down to 300 degrees and cook for 12 to 15 minutes. When my aunt came from India, I made this for her, and she found it to be an unique and tasty lemon cookie. Thank you for sharing this recipe.

    Sooo easy to make, and the fluffiest, most moist, melt-in-your mouth flavor you've ever tasted! EVERYONE asks me for this recipe, and no one can believe it's made from cake mix! I've found that Lemon or Devil's Food cake mix tastes the best, but any of them work. Thanks for a delectable, truly scrumptious and incredibly simple recipe!!!
