Easy Lemon Cookies

Ready in 45 minutes

Incredibly easy and delicious.

"A big hit with some picky eaters. I'm interested to try some variations with other types of cake mix, particularly strawberry. I didn't have lemon extract, so I used vanilla extract and added some juice from the lemon. Had to cook a bit longer (but the oven's been kind of iffy, so that's probably why)."

No tang to them as I'd hoped but they are okay. Soft but not chewy.

Very easy to make and everyone loved them! My batter was gooey so added enough flour to make a paste so I could shape them into balls

These cookies were great! I added lemonade to the sugar and coated it before and after cooking. I also rolled and flattened them slightly. Huge hit with family!!
