Easy Lemon Cookies

One bowl,  five ingredients,  a roll in confectioners sugar, what is not to love. 


Easy Lemon Cookies
Makes 15-18 
Recipe from allrecipes.com 


Ingredients:
1 box (16-18 ounces) package lemon cake mix
2 eggs
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon lemon extract
1/3 cup confectioners sugar

Directions:
1.  Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

2.  Pour cake mix into a large bowl.  Add eggs, oil, and lemon extract until well blended.  Drop teaspoonfuls of dough into a bowl of confectioners sugar.  Roll them around until they are lightly covered.  Once sugared, put them on an ungreased cookie sheet.

3.  Bake for 6-9 minutes in the preheated oven.  The bottoms will be light brown, and the insides chewy.

Enjoy!

You are so right - what's not to love with these cookies. Wish I had could nibble on one one with my coffee this morning while I read my favorite blogs.

Wow! It doesn't get much easier than that, Velva! I'm going to pass this link onto my grandson, Noah. He's been on quite the cake mix baking kick lately. I think he will get such a kick out of this recipe and its simplicity!

Thank you so much for sharing...Pinning:)
