Lovely Lemon Drop Cookies With Cake Mix!
If you like easy, then you will love this lemon drop cookie recipe. Mix the eggs, lemon drop cake mix, lemon juice and oil together, add some drops of dough into confectioner’s sugar and then cook for just under 10 minutes!
I love the freshness of the lemon and how it makes this lemon drop cookies recipe feel like a great refreshing treat. While these have been a favorite of mine especially during the Spring, I’ve found that they are a nice complement to the heavier chocolate or fudge cookies normally made during the cold winter months. Now I frequently have lemon cake mix cookies all year round!
