Lemon Crinkle Cookies

This isn’t so much the case in San Antonio right now (where it’s a balmy 68 degrees), but around this time in New Jersey, I start to go a little sunshine-deprivation crazy. I start to crave citrus, sunshine, and time outdoors – even though it’s usually in the 20s.

That’s where these Lemon Crinkle Cookies come in. They’re a direct inspiration from Jamie’s post for Chocolate Crinkle Cookies. I’m certainly not reinventing the wheel here.

But when it’s dark and dreary and you just need a little sunshine in your life? These are the ticket. Using lemon extract and lemon cake, the perfectly lemon-y yumminess is hard to beat.

Plus, because it’s a recipe where you’re doctoring up a cake mix, it comes together in *no* time.

Brighten up the day of someone you love with some delightful lemon cookies, my friends. The smiles you get back are worth it.

Hi there! i bought the ingredients today! I'm hoping to make the cookie balls and freeze the dough to use as needed. We like to eat our cookies in batches of 4-6 hot out of the oven. Have you ever tried this recipe as a freezer cookie dough before? If so, do you have any tips? thanks so much, betty

Hi Betty, I haven't tried it as a freezer recipe, but I see no reason why it wouldn't work. Please let me know how they turn out!

You said 18 oz of cake mix, but I can never find 18 oz in the store, all I can find is 16 or 19 oz, will that work for the recipe? Thank you!

I would like these to come to my mouth, please. Maybe? I love the idea of a lemon variety.
