Ingredients


Baking Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Melt butter; set aside to cool. Place powdered sugar and cornstarch in shallow dish. Mix with a fork to blend.
  2. Place cake mix, cooled butter, eggs and lemon zest in large mixing bowl. Mix by hand until well blended and a dough forms.
  3. Form dough into 1" balls and roll in powdered sugar. Place on cool, ungreased baking sheets about 2" apart.
  4. Bake, 1 sheet at a time, in center of oven for 9 to 11 minutes or until set. Cool 1 minute. Transfer to wire rack to cool completely.
  5. Store in airtight container with wax paper or parchment separating layers.
  6. Tips:
  7. For consistency, use a small scoop (1" to 1¼" inches in diameter) to form dough into balls.
  8. For best results, bake only one sheet of cookies at a time. If two are baked at once, rotate sheets midway through baking.

Tips

Knead cake mix packet

Knead cake mix packet

If I remember before I open the package, I knead the lumps out. Mixing usually takes care of them but kneading makes it more likely to be completely smooth. Also, my mother taught me to tap the bottom of the pan with batter several times and watch air holes come to the top and break before putting in oven.


Guilt free cakes

Guilt free cakes

When I'm in the mood for cake, I always use applesauce instead of oil (up to 1/2 cup). This way, I can feel guiltfree about what I'm eating (I don't like frosting on my cakes). Makes the cake nice and moist, too!
