      I really like lemon bars and lemon pies, so when I found a recipe for lemon cookies I decided to try it. I found the recipe in the Favorite Name Brand Bake Sale Cookbook. I’ve made several recipes from this cookbook, and most of them were excellent, so I was pretty sure that I would like the Lemon Cookies. Plus, I’m always searching for easy recipes, and this one definitely looked easy.

      Here are the ingredients needed to make these Lemon Cookies:

      1 package of Duncan Hines Moist


      Deluxe Lemon Supreme Cake Mix 2 eggs 1/3 cup of Crisco Oil or Crisco Puritan Canola Oil 1 tablespoon of lemon juice 3/4 cup of chopped nuts or flaked coconut confectioners sugar

      I found it interesting that the recipe called for a choice of either chopped nuts or flaked coconut. I didn’t have any trouble deciding to use the coconut, because there aren’t a whole lot of cookies that I like with chopped nuts.

      Here are the recipe instructions:

      First, grease baking sheets and preheat the oven to 375 degrees.


      • Next, combine the cake mix, eggs, oil and lemon juice in a large bowl. Beat at a low speed with an electric mixer until well blended. Add coconut flakes, and shape into 1-inch balls. Then, place the balls 1 inch apart on the greased baking sheets, and bake at 375 degrees for 6 to 7 minutes, or until lightly browned. Cool for 1 minute on baking sheets and remove to cooling racks. Finally, sprinkle with confectioners sugar.

        I thought the cookies looked great, they smelled

        amazing, and I was very pleased with the taste. The coconut and lemon were very nice together, and the cookies had a light pleasant taste. They were also very moist and soft, which is exactly how I like my cookies.

        Overall, I think this is a great recipe that can be made year round. I think they would be especially nice for summer parties and get-togethers, because they really taste light and refreshing. I definitely liked these Lemon Cookies enough to make them again, and I’m looking forward to sharing them with family and friends.
