Reviews for Lemon Snowflakes
"Really don't know why everyone is raving about this recipe ?! This was just ok. Won't be making this again ! Cookies made from scratch are much better!!!!"
"Frist time I made them they were too sweet; however, second time I made them I substituted the whipping topping with sour cream, much better."
"Easy, tasty and inexpensive. Great recipe! :)"
"The cookie trifecta: easy to make, very tasty, and soft and chewy!"
"Love these. Been making them a couple years now. Have used chocolate & spice cake mix as well! We call the lemon ones Yellow Snow cookies! LOL"
"I have not made these cookies but if you were to use Reynolds non stick foil they would slide right off. I use it for all my cookies."
"I just made these with Betty Crocker Gluten Free Devil's Food Cake mix, 15 oz, (one of my friends can't have Gluten) and OMG what nice cookies, great flavor. Of course, you can't go wrong with Chocolate. Cooked 11 minutes and soft like the top of a cup cake like someone had said. I always bake cookies on parchment paper. I wet my fingers and it was easier to roll the mix in a ball. I got 45. Next time I will try to refrigerate dough for 1/2 hour like someone said. This is a keeper"
"Lenny1309, seriously? All cake mixes are now the 15 oz size. All the manufacturers stopped making the 18 oz size and cut back the ounces per box, to avoid having to raise the price. The cake mix they mean is just a regular 2-layer size cake mix. Even if you found a "years-old" 18 oz cake mix, that would not make much of a difference in your finished product. This is not rocket science."
"These cookies have an excellent taste. They stuck to the ungreased pan though so next time I make them I will lightly grease the pan and make them smaller in order to get the 5 1/2 dozen instead of the 3 1/2 dozen that I got."
"my mom has been making them since I was a child, her recipe is called " lemon whippersnappers" and uses Duncan Hines cake mix, the only brand without the pudding in the mix. we also bake them on a greased cookie sheet"
