Easy Lemon Crinkle Cookies
Marlynn Schotland, Urban Bliss Life
box of your favorite lemon cake mix
18.25 ounce box
melted coconut oil
or vegetable oil
freshly grated lemon zest
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!)
