Lemon Snowflake Cookies

One of our friends brought these tasty cookies to our holiday party in December...and Josh ate them! Finally, a sweet that Josh ate more than one of!

The recipe is incredibly easy - you may already have everything you need in your cupboard & freezer. They have a wonderful light, chewy texture, and look quite pretty on a plate. They are a little sticky to make, but getting your hands dirty can be half the fun! I'm sure kids would have a great time helping mom in the kitchen with these cookies.

Lemon Snowflake Cookies

1 Box Lemon Cake Mix**
1 egg
2 cups whipped topping,thawed
powdered sugar

Mix the first three ingredients. The mixture will be very sticky.

Drop heaping teaspoons into powdered sugar & roll to fully coat. I found it easiest to drop 4-6 cookies into the powdered sugar, then roll them and place them on the cookie sheet.

Place on an ungreased cookie sheet (I used silicone baking sheets), 1-2 inches apart. Bake for 8-10 minutes at 350 degrees. The cookies will just be starting to turn brown at the edges. Remove from cookie sheet 1-2 minutes after removing from the oven.


**I used a french vanilla cake mix, a box of lemon pudding & 1 tsp lemon extract. Because of the slightly extra amount of dry ingredients, I used approximately 3/4 of an 8oz tub of cool whip.
