  • 1 box of your favorite lemon cake mix 18.25 ounce box
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup melted coconut oil or vegetable oil
  • 1 Tablespoon freshly grated lemon zest
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • powdered sugar about 1/3 cup; just enough to roll the cookies in


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • In a large bowl, mix together cake mix, eggs, oil, lemon zest, and lemon juice. Don't over-mix! Just mix until all ingredients are happily blended together.
  • Form dough into a disc shape and wrap either with wax paper or plastic wrap, then refrigerate for 30-40 minutes.
  • Place about 1/3 cup sugar into a shallow bowl and set aside.
  • Remove dough from the refrigerator and form tablespoon-size balls.
  • Roll each ball into the powdered sugar to lightly coat, then place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper or a SilPat.
  • Bake at 375 degrees for 7-9 minutes, until the bottoms of the cookies are lightly browned.
  • Let cool on a cookie rack for 5 minutes before eating.
  • Repeat steps 1-8 to make another batch once you realize you've somehow eaten the entire first batch in one sitting. (No judgment here, friends!)
