Easy Lemon Cake Mix Cookies With Glaze

Everyone always thinks of baking during the Winter, but there are some great baking recipes that are full of spring flavor. Lemon is a flavor that I crave during the spring. These Lemon Cake Mix Cookies are fluffy, soft and they’ve got that slightly sweet and tart lemon flavor. Plus, they couldn’t be any easier. Serve them alongside tea or as an afternoon snack.

If you’re not the best baker or you always tend to mess up cookies, this is a foolproof recipe you’re going to love. You use vegetable oil instead of butter, so you don’t have to worry about softening anything to room temperature. 

Plus, all of your dry ingredients are already in the cake mix. Essentially, you’re just throwing everything together and dropping them onto the lined cookie sheet. I do use Sil Pats, but you can opt for parchment paper instead.

Bake 8-10 minutes until the tops look dry and don’t wiggle when you shake them. Let cool for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack.

While the cookies cool, make the glaze. Whisk together the powdered sugar, lemon juice and vanilla.
