These Lemon Crinkle Cookies are SUPER (and I mean Super!) easy to make. You only need 4 ingredients to make them happen, (crazy, right!) and they are wonderfully soft and chewy on the inside while being slightly crisp on the outside. I came across the recipe online while I was searching for a quick fix treat to make for my family that didn’t require me to head out to the store for any random ingredients. I ended up having everything I needed to make them and my kids loved, loved, loved them.

We hope you do too. 🙂

Look at those 4 ingredients. So simple, but so great! I’ve never, in my 41 years, heard of putting cool whip in cookie dough. I was a little bit skeptical, but heck. I’m willing to try just about anything. It turned out to be a great choice.

Let’s make some cookies!

IMG_9027_edited-1

1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
2. Into a medium-sized mixing bowl place 1 box lemon cake mix, 1 egg and 1 (8 ounce) container of thawed Cool Whip. (Please note that the picture above is of a 16 ounce container, which is the only thing I had on hand. I just used half of it for this recipe).
3. Stir the ingredients together with a wooden spoon, until combined. The mixture will be sticky.

4. Scoop the dough into spoonfuls…

and drop them into 1 C powdered sugar. Cover each dough ball with powdered sugar and place on a large cookie sheet that has been sprayed with cooking spray.

5. Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until the tops have cracked and they are golden brown along the bottom.

6. Allow them to sit on the warm pan for 1-2 minutes, then remove them to a wire rack to cool completely.

    I’ve been making these for years and they are wonderful! They are also great with strawberry or chocolate cake mix as well. I find them to be a bit “high-maintenence” because the batter is so sticky but I get a large bowl with low sides and then drop 4-5 balls in at a time, spoon the powdered sugar over them all and then set them on the tray. Speeds things up quite a bit. 😉

    Yum – easy and sounds so good. I bet these would be good with the key lime cake mix also…will try them both.
