What to do with an extra box of lemon cake mix? That was the question. The answer was to google it and come up with this awesome cookie recipe! I often wonder what I would do without google some times. How about you…


  • 1/8 cup flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 box lemon cake mix
  • 2 oz of cream cheese, softened
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 extra drop yellow food coloring if you would like a deeper yellow color (optional)
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar (if you want them coated as seen, optional)


Preheat your oven to 350 degrees

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper

Mix together your lemon cake mix, baking powder, eggs, cream cheese, food coloring (If your batter is too sticky add in 1/8 cup flour)

Scoop out your dough with a tablespoon and form it into small balls

Place your dough balls into the powdered sugar and cover the outside of the balls completely

Place your dough balls onto your parchment paper lined baking pan

Cook for 10 minutes

When you take your cookies out of the oven, carefully press them down with the bottom of a cup or glass
