I love Lemon Cookies, especially these Lemon Drop Cookies. Made from a Lemon Cake Mix, this cookie recipe couldn’t be easier! Our Lemon Cake Mix Cookies are the perfect summer treat!
If you love citrus and lemon recipes, you are going to want to pay attention to what I am sharing today…Lemon Drop Cookies! This is one of the easiest cookie recipes around. They are made with a cake mix and have only three ingredients (one being the cake mix of course). So if you don’t have a lot of time and need a quick and tasty dessert recipe, no need to look any further.
LEMON DROP COOKIES
These cookies were a hit at my house. It’s a good thing…because I actually had to make them twice because I burnt the first batch…oopsie! They were not too burned to actually eat and enjoy…but they were a little too burned for me to take a pretty picture of them. But no one seemed to complain that we ended up with a couple batches of lemon cookies!

- 1 box Lemon Cake Mix
- 2 eggs
- 1/3 cup vegetable oil
Lemon Sugar Glaze
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 1 tsp lemon juice
- water as needed
Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
Add all ingredients to a medium sized bowl.
Using a spoon, mix ingredients together until dough forms and is well mixed.
Grease a cookie sheet and roll into 1 inch round balls.
*Add some confectioner's sugar to a small bowl and roll the top of the cookie in the sugar.
Bake for 7-9 minutes. Remove cookies from oven before they turn golden brown.
Remove from oven and let cookies cool completely.
*If you want to add a Lemon Sugar Glaze to the cookies instead of rolling them in confectioner's sugar, simply omit step 5 above. When the cookies have cooled completely, glaze them with the recipe below.
Directions for the Lemon Glaze
Add lemon juice and water to a bowl and mix together.
Slowly add water to mixture while stirring. When you get a nice consistency for a think glaze stop adding water. If you add too much water, simply add a little more confectioner’s sugar.
Drizzle each cookie with the lemon sugar glaze.
We rolled the cookies in confectioner’s sugar before baking them…but you could add a lemon glaze frosting to them if that sounds better to you. Either way, you will find that these are super tasty! I also love how pretty they are! I love the yellow color of them…you know how much I enjoy the color yellow!
