1box of lemon cake mix
Preheat oven to 350 degree. In a large bowl, combine the lemon cake mix, egg, and 2 cups of the Cool Whip. Stir until just combined. Place the dough in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes for the dough to firm up.
Roll dough into 1 inch balls in the palm of your hand (you may want to put a little powdered sugar on your palms if dough is still sticky)*. Then roll dough balls in powdered sugar and place on a lightly greased cooking sheet two inches apart from one another.
Bake for 8-10 minutes. Allow to cool on a wire rack. Store in an airtight container.
Done. Done. And done. These cookies also keep really well -- and we still eat them 3-5 days after baking them.*if you're giving them as gifts and stacking them, it's even more essential to have smooth, uniform balls, so you can eyeball it (like I do) or use a cookie scoop so they're all the same size. Keep rolling them in the palm of your hand until they are nice and smooth.
