These lemon cake mix cookies would be great to bring into a party or even give as presents.
Prep Time: 5-15 Minutes Inactive Cook Time: 10-12 Minutes
You know when you tried out an existing recipe which didn’t work as it claimed is very disappointing, right?
But some are worthy of a little effort and time to make some adjustments and/or improvements. This is one of those recipes.
Since my little one made the first batch, we made another 6 batches within the next 3 months. How could I resist, especially when my little one told me one day, “Mom, I am a pro. I can do it.” And your hubby was cracking up badly after hearing that conversation.
Everybody loves these lemon cake mix cookies. Those batches were made to bring to church for bake sale. Some of our church goers love them so much that they bought the whole box of cookies right away before the sale started.
I have been buying the cake mix whenever it was on sale in the store. After making so many of them, I started to realize that there are 2 very different kinds of cake mix which would make a difference on your cookie texture and cook time.
So, let’s look at what these 2 cake mixes are:
True to its name, the super moist brand is moist and easy to mix together. It doesn't have many lumps as the other cake mix. Because of its moisture, it may take longer to bake to your liking.
On the other hand, the regular lemon cake mix is drier. When I first saw the dry lumps, I thought that my little one didn’t mix it well enough. After a couple batches, I then realized that dry lumps are always there no matter how you mix the ingredients together.
So, here is my recommendation when it comes to regular lemon cake mix. Use a fork throughout the stirring process. When you see the lumps, use the fork to break them apart. You may need to put your batter aside for 10 minutes to allow everything blend together. Then, stir it again to break down the rest of the dry lumps.
I know you are asking me why do you need to go through this trouble? It is because it will easily bake the cookies to your desired texture.
