Lemon Supreme Cookies: 3 Ingredients

Spring is here. Joyous Spring.

Spring is light. Spring is happy. Spring is refreshing.

For some reason when I think of lemons I think of Spring…not Summer. I know weird…but there ya have it.


Which is why I have a lemony recipe for you today.

Do you wanna know an added happy bonus to our happy lemon cookies?

They only have THREE ingredients. Say whaaaat?!?? Yup. I speak the truth.

So enjoy yourself some Spring and make the easiest cookies ever.

Lemon Supreme Cookies


Lemon Supreme Cake Mix

1- 8oz tub cool whip topping, softened

1 egg

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix all the ingredients.

The dough will be thick and taffy-esque.

Drop the dough in heaping tablespoon amounts onto a greased cookie sheet.

Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Let cool on the cookie sheet for about 10 minutes.

Remove. Eat. Share. Enjoy.

Have a marvelous Spring. Stop by my blog Just Another Day in Paradise for more recipes.

  1. Delicious! It doesn’t get much easier than that!

  2. Yum! I miss cake mix cookies. I used to make lemon cake mix cookies with white chocolate chips before we went gluten-free at our home. Your cookies look delicious! Thanks for sharing.

  3. I’ve made those cookies so many times except I roll the dough in powdered sugar. So delicious! They’ve been present at many bridal and baby showers.

  4. Ooooh! Do those ever sound wonderful!! I even have the cake mix and the eggs! I think I need to go get me some cool whip – today! Thanks for sharing this!

  5. Mmmmm yummm!!!!!! Pinning!

    In place of cool whip, can I substitute whipped cream made with the 35% cream in carton (if I follow directions to turn it into cream) … I’m really new too baking… these cookies look fabulous.

  7. Linda Lewis says:

    I’ve made these twice and I love the taste, however, I burned out my mixer motor.
    Am I doing something wrong? Also, there’s no way they bake in 6 minutes, it’s more like 14.

    • Linda,

      It is tough on your mixer, that is for sure! It is just a really taffy-like mixture.

      As for the baking time…as in all cookies and baking, time completely varies. I like my cookies slightly underdone. BUT my husband cooks them for longer when he makes them.

      Thanks for passing your cooking time on, I always forget that not everyone likes slightly underdone cookies!

  8. about how many cookies does this recipe make?

  9. wonderful for weddings, the little yellow is just the right color for spring!

  10. Can I substitute Egg Beaters for the egg?

  11. Cassie Andrews says:

    I made these and they were very good!! Although I forgot the egg!! But even without they were tasty, a bit chewy but very good!! I rolled a few in the powdered sugar and loved those too!!!

  12. interesting. i haven’t heard of cookies from a cake mix and cool whip. they look yummy and definitely great for spring!

  13. Can you stir it up without a mixer? Thanks

  14. Thanks for this easy recipe. I made a batch tonight. Taste really good, I love LEMON.

  15. Someone who cooks says:

    So a cake mix package is an ingredient? LOL

    And you call that cooking too, right? Only in America….

    • Just a lil love says:

      Not everyone has time nor money to keep their pantries constantly stocked with all of the ALL FROM SCRATCH ingredients to make recipes. It’s a very nice to know that if you are trying to make something yummy (such as these cookies) and you happen to not have all of the from scratch ingredients (which can be costly I might add!) yet you do have a quick cake box- you can substitute. And yes, substituting one thing for another in a recipe is allowed and both things are still ingredients. Doesn’t matter how hard you work on it. Work smart. The end result will be the same. That’s what counts. Go America :)

    • Mary Anne says:

      Seriously, did your mother not teach you manners? “someone who cooks” is “someone who is rude”.

      Sounds yummy…going to have to try them!

  16. I would try these if it weren’t for the Cool Whip.

  17. Perky Sue says:

    This is a wonderful idea. I have a grandson I am teaching to do some cooking. He is 8 and this is easy and he would be able to make them and have a blast. Seems to me he could do what ever flavor of cake he wanted, so probably chocolate (smile). Thanks for the idea. Easy is great for little ones.

  18. Doesn’t turn out exactly like the picture shows, but they’re still delicious!

  19. JudiHerrmann says:

    Is ther any reason that you could not use another flavor of cake mix????I am just wondering if anyone else tried this??

  20. 3 ingredients! right up my alley. I LOVE easy!! My 7 year old daughter couldn’t wait to help me make them….they are in the oven right now and smell sooooo yummy, can’t wait to taste them!!!! Thanks for sharing~ We are sharing them with our family at Thanksgiving Dinner tomorrow, can’t wait for someone to ask me for the recipe! It seems that EVERYONE I talk to LOVES simple recipes, too. This rocks, no one should be critisized for offering up something simple for busy moms on the go. I’m lucky I even turn on my oven at all! Go ahead and judge all you “easy” haters. :) xoxo

  21. How did you get them so flat? Mine are more like small cakes…

  22. Tried many flavors of cake mixes, orange, strawberry, lemon, caramel, pink lemonade…. They are all tasty!
