Ingredients

Lemon Cookies

  • 1 (15.25 oz) box lemon cake mix
  • 1 (3.4 oz) box instant lemon pudding mix
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter melted (1/2 cup = 1 stick)
  • 2 large eggs room temperature

Lemon Glaze

  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter room temperature

Instructions

Lemon Cookies

  • Place dry cake mix, dry pudding mix, butter, and eggs into a large bowl.
  • Use a hand mixer and mix until well combined.
  • Cover and chill the dough for 30 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line a rimmed baking sheet with a silicone baking mat.
  • Use a large cookie scoop to scoop 8 cookies (you’ll make 16 total) onto the prepared baking sheet, leaving room for the cookies to spread.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 10-15 minutes. They may not look quite done, but they continue cooking and firm up as they cool.
  • Remove from oven, cool for 2 minutes on baking sheet, then remove cookies and place onto a wire baking rack to continue cooling.
  • Repeat with remaining dough.
  • Cool completely before adding the glaze.
