Quick n' Easy Lemon Cookies

Our JETTEAM resident baker Gaetana, from SatinDollCo, has shared her recipe for Lemon Cookies today. They look yummy.

"I love baking and especially cookies during the holiday season. This is a twist on  your traditional lemon cookies. Quick and easy and super fun for kids too."

Let's start with the ingredients:


- 1 pk lemon cake mix
- 2 eggs
- 1/3 cup of vegetable oil
- 1 teaspoon lemon extract (I substituted the extract for real juice from half a lemon)
-  zest of one lemon (not in the original recipe)
- 1/3 cup of confectioners sugar

Preheat your oven to 375`. Pour the cake mix into a large bowl. Stir in eggs, oil, lemon juice and lemon extract until well blended. Yours should look like the picture shown below.


(Note: It might seem kind of thick that's exactly how it's supposed to be) Put your confectioners sugar in a separate bowl. Take a teaspoon or even a melon baller and take a scoop of dough. The smaller it is, the better.


As you can see,  I took a big teaspoon full of the dough. Don't do what I did!!

Take your clean hands and roll the dough in the confectioners sugar until fully coated and in the shape of a bowl. Once sugared,  put on an ungreased cookie sheet.


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


Let cool and enjoy.

Looks so good. I was going to suggest adding zest if it wasn't already in there, and see you did too. It just adds...zest:)
