  • 1 box lemon cake mix
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoons milk


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper or spray with non-stick spray.
  • In a large bowl, mix together cake mix, oil, eggs and lemon zest until combined. Batter will be thick.  Be sure not to over mix.
  • Drop tablespoon full of batter on cookie sheet about 2 inches apart. 
  • Bake for 8 minutes. Let cool on wire rack. 
  • For icing, mix together powdered sugar, lemon juice and milk. Once cookies cool, drizzle icing on top of cookies. 


The cookies look pretty soft and puffy when they come out of oven but once they cool they flatten out and are perfect.
