I've come to realize most of my really good cookies have some form of chocolate in them. I know....I LOVE anything chocolate, but it would be nice to have a couple that aren't, for variety sake.
I thought I'd share one with you that I tried out this past weekend. They were tasty and so simple, so they're definitely a "keeper"; but I haven't decided whether they're Christmas worthy yet.
1 package lemon cake mix
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 tsp. lemon extract
1/3 cup confectioner's sugar (for decorating)
Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees (190 degrees C). Pour cake mix into a large bowl. Stir in eggs, oil, and lemon extract until well blended. Drop teaspoonfuls of dough into a bowl of confectioner's sugar. Roll them around until they're lightly covered. Once sugared, put them on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 6-9 minutes. The bottoms will be light brown and the insides chewy. After they had cooled, I dusted the tops with a bit more sugar.
