"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."
