Tasty and very easy. I made mine with a strawberry cake mix. However, I didn’t get anywhere close to 4 dozen; just shy of 2 dozen.

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.

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 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!
