I have always loved anything lemon flavored. These little guys remind me of my days at Vacation Bible School (a.k.a the best place on earth for a kid), when we were spoiled at snack time with watered-down pink lemonade, fruit punch, iced oatmeal cookies, and the one and only: iced lemon cookies. All off-brand of course. Unfortunately, these little bites of heaven aren't sold anywhere nowadays (I've looked....a lot), so when I heard of this recipe, I just had to try it.
I had to tweak it a little because they just weren't lemon-y enough for me. Here's my version:
-1 box of lemon flavored cake mix
-1 tub of Cool Whip
-1 TSP of lemon extract (this is optional)
-1/2 cup powdered sugar
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Beat the cake mix, egg, Cool Whip, and lemon extract until mixed. Dough should be sticky and thick. Lay parchment or wax paper on baking sheet. Roll tablespoon sized pieces of dough in a bowl of powdered sugar, until they are no longer sticky and form a little ball. Place on baking sheet. Bake 9-12 minutes. Eat. All of them.
I need more recipes. Anyone heard of any good ones lately?
