Units Scale

Lemon Cookies

  • 1 15.25oz box lemon cake mix
  • 1/2 cup oil (I recommend light olive oil, canola oil, or vegetable oil)
  • 2 large eggs

Lemon Glaze

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice (freshly squeezed)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large mixing bowl combine lemon cake mix, oil, and eggs with an electric hand mixer until fully combined. The dough will be sticky and thick.
  3. Cover and refrigerate the dough for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
  4. Once dough has chilled, use a small cookie scoop and place cookies spaced apart on a lined baking sheet. I usually do 6-8 cookies on a cookie sheet at a time.
  5. Bake for 8-10 minutes until the cookie edges are set and the center still looks slightly soft.
  6. Remove from oven and allow cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire cooling rack to cool further while preparing glaze icing.
  7. In a small mixing bowl, combine powdered sugar and lemon juice and whisk together until a smooth drizzle consistency.
  8. Place cooling rack over the parchment paper lined cookie sheet.
  9. Lightly dip the cookie tops one at a time in the glaze, allowing excess to drip down before turning cookie over and placing back on the cooling rack. This helps prevent messes.
  10. Repeat until all cookies are glazed and allow the glaze on the cookies to fully set up before eating and storing away.

Store leftover lemon cake mix cookies in an airtight container for up to 1 week.

Lightly dipping will give your cookies a pretty crackled appearance, but if you prefer you can dip the tops all the way down in the icing for a thicker glaze.
