Christmas Cookie #3 – Lemon Whippersnappers & Cranberry Lemon

Pressed for time, as always around here, yesterday I wanted to make a light cookie with a citrus taste to complete the desserts I was serving for a Christmas dinner party.  Time not being on my side, I opted to go with the cake mix cookie recipe I posted the other day.

This recipe used a lemon cake mix which made the cookies full of lemon flavor — excellent.

  • Lemon Cake Mix
  • 2 Cups Cool Whip
  • 1 Egg
  • Powdered Sugar

Mix ingredients together.  Roll teaspoons full of dough in powdered sugar and place on cookie sheet with parchment paper.  Bake in 350 oven for 10 minutes.  Remove from oven and let sit for 2 minutes on tray.

To make the Cranberry-Lemon Whippersnappers add 2/3 cup of dried cranberries to dough and continue as above.

I froze half the dough for these and baked the other half.  These were the perfect finishing touch for the dessert table.
