Lemon Crinkles

These 4 ingredient Lemon Crinkle Cookies are so easy, you could make them with your eyes closed. 

Citrus recipes are a favorite of mine and any chance I get to share some citrus love, I am on board. Cake mix is something I normally keep in my pantry. I bet there are at least a dozen in there right now! My new favorite thing to make with a cake mix is cookies. Seriously, have you ever tried them?

I know some frown upon a cake mix but for me they are such time savers. You can doctor them up and no one will be able to tell they were from a box. 

These Lemon Crinkles are a soft cookie which are my favorite. The possibilities are endless when it comes to the versatility of a box cake mix cookie.  Simply change up the cake mix flavor and get a whole new cookie flavor.  Which one are you going to try first? 

Lemon Crinkles


1 box lemon cake mix
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 8­ounce container whipped topping, thawed
½ to 1 cup powdered sugar


Preheat oven to 350. In a large bowl, combine cake mix, egg, and whipped topping. Please note, the batter will be very sticky. Using a cookie scoop or two tablespoons, form dough into tablespoonfuls and roll in powdered sugar. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, until the edges are golden. Allow to cool 1 minute on baking sheet; then remove to wire rack to cool completely.
