Summer’s Lemon Cookies

Lemon cookies are generally not my favorite, but these are probably my favorite cookies ever.



First mix cake mix, eggs, and oil

Mix it by hand (not a electric mixer) until a dough forms

Then form into 1 inch ball and roll in powdered sugar

When placed on baking sheet, take a cup and push the dough ball down so it is somewhat flat

Place in oven at 350F degrees for 10 minutes and let cool


For the icing whisk together the butter, powdered sugar, vanilla and orange extract, and milk until smooth

When the cookies have cooled and before the glaze sets spread it over the cookies and let sit

Enjoy! 🙂
