Lemon Cake Mix Cookies (AKA: the Easiest Cookies Ever!)

August 15, 2022 · by Ashton Dorow

These cookies are some of my very favorites, and they are literally SO easy, with only four ingredients required! They are the perfect dessert to throw together in a hurry for a party, bake sale, or just because!


  • Lemon cake mix
  • 1 egg
  • 1 8 oz container of whipped dessert topping
  • Powdered sugar


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Mix together cake mix, egg, and whipped topping. The mixture will be very sticky!

Scoop out dough with a small cookie scoop and gently roll it into a ball before coating the dough in powdered sugar.

Place the dough balls on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper, about two inches apart.

Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until just set and the tops look crackle-y. Let the cookies cool on a wire rack and ENJOY!

PS: while lemon is my favorite flavor to use for these cookies, you can make this recipe with any cake mix! Strawberry, chocolate, funfetti–-so many possibilities!
