Easy Lemon Burst Cookies
Thanks to Pinterest and ultimately Tidy Mom, I found an irresistible recipe (among many others) for lemon cookies and tried it today. Do you want the good news first or the bad? I'll give you the good 'cause it's really good...
The recipe calls for FOUR ingredients, that's it AND each cookie is only ONE point!! So good. Right?
The bad news is you can't eat just one which makes it very dangerous to even make this. You start with a one point cookie that turns into ten by the end of the night. So bad.
So here it is in all it's good and bad glory...
LEMON BURST COOKIES
1. One box of lemon cake mix*
2. One - 8 oz. tub of cool whip**
3. One egg
4. Powdered sugar
Preheat oven to 350°
In medium bowl beat cool whip, egg and cake mix until well blended. Dough will be thick and sticky.
Drop teaspoonfuls into a bowl of powdered sugar and roll to coat.
Place on cookie sheet and bake for 12-14 minutes.
Eat warm! The cookies should be chewy deliciousness.
* Don't like lemon? Try an orange or strawberry cake mix!
** I used a tub of "lite" cool whip so the cookies were one (Weight Watcher) point. If you are not watching your waistline, use the real stuff (it's what the original recipe called for)
Note: You should yield 50-60 cookies to get each cookie within the one point range. Also, the smaller the cookie the better. The cookie is already quite chewy. Making a large cookie leaves the center raw-ish.
