Reviews for Lemon Crisp Cookies
"Very easy to make, but if I make again I will leave the rice crispies out or decrease the amount."
"I'll try this recipe but it sounds similar to the one I use.....1 box lemon cake mix ..1 egg..8oz. Cool Whip. Stir together. Dough will be like marshmellow creme. Bake cookies 8 to 10 min."
"If your looking to change your normal cookie routine this is a great twist. I used a Pillsbury Pink Lemonade cake mix. It made a nice crisp summer cookie."
"Very yummy and so easy to make."
"I have made these cookies before & they are really delicious! They're definitely a keeper in my opinion!"
"I got this recipe years ago from a friend and loved it. I have also used this recipe with raspberry cake mix and that is delicious too."
"These were a hit! I added a lemon/powder sugar glaze and made them that much better!!"
"I think it would have been alot better without the rice crispy"
"I made these at the last minute to take to our church, and 4 of the ladies that work in the kitchen ran out and asked me to give them the recipe! So easy and the lemon is so refreshing!"
"Crispy on the outside and chewy inside. Very good, quick"
"Great! I love recipes that start with a cake mix. I keep cake mixes on hand, putting directions on a freezer baggie with other ingredients inside for trips in our motorhome."
"Tried this recipe last night. Everyone loves them !! So easy and delicious !! It made appx. 4 dozen for me as I made a little larger than 1/2 inch. It made cookies about 2 inches in diameter , the perfect size for us. I highly recommend this recipe for anyone who wants a fast delicious cookie. I think trying different flavor cake mixes would make excellent cookies as well ."
