These are my favorite Homemade Lemon Cookies!
I love lemon desserts. But making homemade lemon cookies can be very complicated. You have to use lemon extract, lemon zest or lemon juice. Then you have to mix all the ingredients at certain times or they never turn out right!
First the eggs, oil and then the sugar and flour…who knows! I always get it confused and usually mess them up. As you can tell, I’m not much of a baker. I can never follow all the baking rules.
I knew there had to be an easier way to enjoy a simple lemon dessert. I was inspired by my Red Velvet cookies and thought maybe I could use a lemon cake mix to create an easy lemon dessert as well.
This is how these lemon cool whip cookies were created. I hope you enjoy this dessert that only requires 4 ingredients as much as I have!

How to make lemon cake mix cookies:
First preheat your oven to 350F. Then spray a cookie sheet with non-stick cooking spray. I know for most recipes you can use an ungreased cookie sheet, but not this one. You’ll need the non-stick cooking spray for this recipe so don’t skip this step.
Next pour cake mix into a large bowl and then mix in the cool whip and egg.
The mix will be VERY fluffy. Don’t worry! Just keep mixing until all the ingredients are well combined.
Next use a small cookie scoop or two spoons to drop rounded cookie dough into a small bowl of confectioners sugar.
Roll the dough ball in the powdered sugar until it is lightly covered with the powdered sugar.
Then set the cookies on the cookie sheet, about 2 inches apart.
After that bake in the preheated oven for 8 minutes or until the cookies are very light brown around the edges.
Next let them cool on the cookie sheet for a couple of minutes before removing to wire racks or parchment paper to cool completely.
That’s it! Then store the delicious cookies at room temperature in an airtight container. These are best eaten within a day or two of baking but they usually don’t even last that long in my house!
You don’t have to top them with a lemon glaze or anything complicated like this. These cookies are perfect just the way they are!
