Lemon Cake Cookies

The Methodist Church had a bake/yard sale the second week in April. Jean and Jim, Gregory's neighbor are members and I offered to bake again for them this year. Last year I made these
which were excellent. I know lemon is a favorite so decided to make Lemon Cookies.

1 box lemon cake mix-( used Betty Crocker 18.25 oz)
1/2 Cup oil
2 eggs
1/2 tsp. lemon extract
Lemon Zest ( I wanted additional lemon taste so I added zest of 1 lemon)

Mix everything together. Drop by tablespoon onto cookies sheet and bake at 350 for 8 to 10 minutes.

Recipe adapted from Here


  1. Those look yummy, Linda. I bet they sold in no time flat and I just know Jean and the church appreciated your donation. I'd do what you did and add lemon zest......I love lemon!

    Thanks for that great photo, your review and the recipe-can I have a cookie for breakfast? :)


  2. I am behind you in line Carol, for my cookie :-). These do look so good. Lemon is so refreshing and these must be so good. I used to make chocolate chip cookies with a cake mix. They were so soft and chewy. Going to have to try these out. You always make me want to try your recipes.

    Bet you are glad to be home in LI...Welcome home !!

  3. These look delicious. I'll need to bake these... I love anything lemon flavored. ~Dawn
