This recipe creates a light, moist cookie that almost melts in your mouth--and it's super simple because it starts with a box of yellow cake mix.

  • Servings: 24 cookies


1 pkg Butter Yellow Cake Mix
1× 8 oz pkg Cream Cheese, softened
1 stick Salted Butter
1 Egg
¼ tsp Lemon Extract
Rind of 1 Lemon
Powdered Sugar, for rolling cookies


Combine all ingredients with an electric mixer, until well blended. Chill dough for 2 hours. Roll into walnut sized balls. Roll balls in powdered sugar. Press cookies with a fork to make a nice crisscross pattern. Bake on an ungreased cookie sheet, in a 350 degree oven, for 10-12 minutes. Dust with powdered sugar when completely cooled
