Tips For Making Cake Mix Lemon Cookies

  • I like to use a small ice cream scoop when placing the cookie dough on the baking sheets.  This keeps the cookies uniform so they bake evenly.
  • If the bottom of your cookies are burning before they are fully cooked, try moving the baking sheet up one slot in the oven.  If that doesn’t solve the problem, it’s probably time to buy a new baking sheet.
