Lemon Cake Cookies With Lemon Zest Sugar Glaze


1 box lemon cake mix

1/2 cup canola or vegetable oil

2 eggs

For the glaze:

1 lemon, zested and juiced

3/4 cup powdered sugar


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, oil and eggs and stir with a wooden spoon until all the cake mix has been incorporated. Drop rounded teaspoonfuls onto 2 large ungreased cookie sheets (I do use silicone pads on my cookie sheets though), and bake for 15 minutes - or until edges are golden and the tops are slightly soft to the touch.

Remove the cookies from the oven and transfer from the cookie sheets to a wire rack. Let cool completely.

To make the glaze:

Whisk together the lemon juice, zest and powdered sugar in a small bowl until smooth. Use a 1/4 teaspoon measuring spoon to add the glaze to each of the cooled cookies, then transfer the cookies to the refrigerator to allow the glaze to set.

Makes about 20 cookies.
