How To Make Lemon Cake Mix Cookies with Cool Whip

Recipe Prep – These cookies don’t take long to make, so preheat your oven to 350 degrees. I also like to line my cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat for easier clean up.

Make The Batter – First, mix the egg and the cool whip together until they have blended. Next, stir in the box of cake mix. The batter should be thick and have a taffy-like texture.

Place The Dough – Scoop about tablespoon-sized balls of dough and place them evenly on the prepared cookie sheet.

Bring Some Heat – Bake the lemon cookies for about 10 minutes and then let them cool before serving.

Tips For Making Cake Mix Lemon Cookies

  • I like to use a cookie 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.
