My husband loves anything lemon flavored. I think his absolute favorite dessert is our Gooey Lemon Bars.
Sometimes he requests lemon bars over cake for his birthday!
I wanted to whip up a quick after school snack for the kids and surprise my husband with something lemony and sweet, and these Lemon Cake Mix Cool Whip Cookies fit the bill.
You could easily make these cookies with any other flavor of cake mix if lemon isn’t your thing. We have made these cookies using a strawberry cake mix for Valentine’s Day or a devil’s food cake mix if we were in the mood for something chocolatey and they have all been delicious.
How to Make Cake Mix Cool Whip Cookies:
You won’t believe how easy it is to make these cookies, but be sure to read the directions so you don’t have any problems.
This cookie dough is very sticky, so it does require some time in the refrigerator as well as using a spoon rather than your hands to handle the dough.
Add the cake mix and beat until well combined then place the bowl of dough in the fridge for 30 minutes.
Take the dough out of the refrigerator and drop the cookie dough by teaspoons (or using a small cookie scoop) into a bowl containing the powdered sugar.
Coat the dough in powdered sugar using a spoon until it is completely covered, then you can use your hands to roll it into a ball.
These cookies do flatten out quite a bit, so be sure to keep the balls of cookie dough around the size of a teaspoon.
Place cookie dough on a baking sheet that has been sprayed generously with nonstick cooking spray or lined with a silicone baking mat.
Bake at 350 degrees for 9-11 minutes, or until the edges are slightly golden brown.
