Easy Lemon Cookie Recipe

Here’s a truth about me-if it’s not chocolate, I don’t typically waste the calories to eat it. So even though I love to bake anything and everything, I’m not very tempted by fruity desserts. But when Danetta took a bite of one of these Easy Lemon Cake Mix Cookies and started raving about how good they turned out, I didn’t totally believe her. Until I took a bite. And then I gobbled the whole thing up! So good and SO easy to make!
