Lemon Supreme Cookies with Fresh Lemon Icing!

Hello all, I know everyone has been waiting for the wonderful Mexican food recipe and I want to apologize! My camera is being fixed so I can’t take fabulous pictures! :( Boohoo! So, to hold yall over I wanted to share this amazing lemon cookie recipe that I found and made this week for two of my friend’s birthdays! Enjoy and I hope to have the camera fixed by Monday so please come back for the fiesta in your mouth! Love to all and thanks for being patient! Blessings!

1 package lemon supreme cake mix
1/3 cup oil
2 eggs
¼ cup sugar

1 cup powdered sugar
4 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (approx. one lemon)

         Preheat oven to 375ยบ
         In large bowl, combine cake mix, oil, and eggs; stir with spoon until thoroughly moistened
         Shape dough into 1” balls; lace 2” apart on ungreased cookie sheet
         Bake for 5-7 minutes or until edges are light, golden brown; cool 1 minute then remove from cookie sheet
         In another small bowl, combine powdered sugar and lemon juice until you obtain a smooth icing consistency; using a teaspoon, drizzle icing over cookies and sprinkle with powdered before the icing sets (if desired)

         Freshly squeezed lemons work best
         Icing consistency can be adjusted using either more lemon juice or more confectioner sugar; allow icing to completely set before storing cookies
         Placing wax paper under the cooling racks before icing cookies can make clean-up much easier


  1. Loved,loved,loved them.lemon heaven.Easy I used a large melon baller to get the perfect size.

  2. What do you do with the quarter cup of sugar? I made these and then noticed it was in the ingredients and I had not used it. They turned out very nice. I think I need to play around with the icing as even though I squeezed a lemon and used fresh lemon juice it still had a somewhat fake taste, I am sure it is due to the powdered sugar. I might try different brands or sifting or maybe cutting it with some real sugar? If you have some thoughts I would love them.
