  1. Lemon cake mix. No specific brand, any cake mix from the store will work

How do you store cake mix cookies?

Store cookies in a air tight container or zip lock bag on the counter for up to three days. If left for more, they tend to become more crumbly and change texture. Sometimes i place cookies in to the fridge to extend the storage life, but they definitely become more crispy then chewy after that.

Basically cake mix lemon cookies recipe is one of the easiest recipes you can find. Just keep your cake mix on hand and enjoy your freshly baked cookies at any time!

I usually have a few cake mix boxes in my pantry, just in case. You don’t have to have sugar, flour or lets say, milk to make cookies form scratch all the time. Safe time by making cookies form the cake mix in less then 30 minutes.

Make a cookie tea party! Offer you kids to make cookie batter and to actually roll cookies in their hands, and you will make tea and place cookies in to the oven.

Isn’t that fun? Especially if you are stuck home for any reason and cant go outside.

I love this recipe. I actually use about 1 Tbsp of olive oil and the rest vegetable oil in mine to keep that chewy texture throughout the cookie. Adding a glaze to them gives another flavor dimension whether it is lemon, strawberry or just a powdered sugar glaze.
