These refreshing little cookies are a summertime favorite at our house. With only three ingredients, you get the fun of baking cookies without the time and mess of more involved recipes. It only takes 15 minutes from the time you even enter the kitchen until the first batch goes in the oven, and in another 15 minutes, or so, you can have two baking sheets worth of cookies cooling on your counter with the dishwasher loaded, supplies put away, and kitchen wiped down. Half an hour to warm yummy cookies and a clean kitchen? Now that's a recipe worth keeping!
To be fair, this is not an original recipe. I found this recipe on the back of a Duncan Hienes cake mix a few years ago. (Although, today I'm using a Betty Crocker brand) Have you ever noticed that some of the best recipes come from the back of food packages? Seriously, some of my favorite recipes have been clipped off of package labels.
Lemon Cake Mix (any brand, even generic will do)
Lemon Icing (optional)
butter (one stick)
water (two Tablespoons)
Preheat oven 350 degrees.
Melt butter and mix with egg, cake mix, and water.
Spoon drop onto baking sheet(teaspoon size)
Bake at 350 degrees for 7-10 minutes
Cool and apply icing if desired.
Enjoy!Just look at that crispy bottom, yet soft and crumbly center - how could you only eat just one! (This batch was baked for 10mins. If you don't care for crispy edges, then I recommend using the lower end of the time range)
