Food: Lemon crinkle cookies

I’m a sucker for anything lemon. I’m especially a sucker for lemon recipes with less than 5 ingredients.

I first discovered this crazy easy recipe on Pinterest, via Kitchen Meets Girl. And since the only thing I didn’t have in my pantry was lemon cake mix, the decision to make this cookie wasn’t even really a decision at all. It just had to be done and I couldn’t wait to share it with you.

Go ahead, gather your ingredients. It’ll take you 5 minutes. Here’s what you need:

    1 box of lemon cake mix
    8 oz cool whip (thawed)
    1 egg
    1 cup of powder sugar

Preheat your oven to 350 and then mix your cake mix, cool whip, and egg together in large bowl.

Your batter will be sticky and awkward. Don’t worry, powder sugar will come to your rescue. Put your powder sugar in a small bowl and then place a dollop of batter in the bowl. Note: the original recipe recommended a tablespoon size dollop and that’s what you see below; however, I’d recommend smaller. Smaller cookies means more cookies.

Cover your batter in sugar completely. Move from hand to hand to shake off excess sugar.

Place your cookie on a greased cookie sheet.

Bake for about 8-10 minutes until golden brown on edges. Because my cookies were probably larger than intended, my cooking time was probably closer to 12-13 minutes. Remove from oven and allow them to cool on cookie sheet for 1 minute, then move to wire rack to cool completely.

Now, the hard part – try to resist eating all of them. They are so perfectly soft and moist, I couldn’t believe it.

I’ll be making these again soon and might even try other cake mix flavors!
