"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."

"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 ."
