“Welcome to a delightful culinary adventure that combines the tangy zest of lemon with the sweetness of a soft-baked cookie.”
– 432 grams (1 box) lemon-flavored cake mix – 3 eggs – 1 cup milk – ½ cup melted butter – 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
– 1 cup icing sugar – ¼ tsp lemon zest – 1 tsp lemon juice
Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). In a mixing bowl, combine the cake mix, eggs, milk, and melted butter. Mix well until all ingredients are fully incorporated.
Gradually add the all-purpose flour to the mixture, stirring until the batter forms a dough-like consistency that can be easily scooped. If needed, add more flour until the desired texture is achieved.
Scoop the cookie dough onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Ensure proper spacing between the dough portions. Bake in the preheated oven for approximately 15 minutes or until the cookies are firm to the touch. Avoid scorching the tops or burning the bottoms.
In a small bowl, combine the icing sugar and lemon zest. Add the lemon juice and mix well using a spoon or mini whisk. Adjust the consistency by adding more icing sugar to thicken or a little more lemon juice to soften the glaze. Aim for a slightly stiff consistency. Spread the prepared glaze onto the cooled cookies using a spoon or opt for piping the glaze using a piping bag or a homemade version made from a sandwich bag. Allow the glaze to set before serving.
