Lemon Burst Cookies


I was looking for a simple recipe for Easter and saw this recipe from Brown Eyed Baker's blog. It was very easy to make and the perfect amount of lemon. This one is definitely a keeper and would be great for a cookie exchange! Now if I can just remember that for the cookie exchange I participate in around Christmas.

1 (18.25-ounce) package lemon cake mix
2 eggs
1/3 cup vegetable oil
Zest of 2 lemons
2 Tbsp lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon lemon extract
1/3 cup confectioner’s sugar

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mat.
Pour cake mix into a large bowl. Stir in eggs, oil, lemon zest, lemon juice and lemon extract until well blended.

Place confectioner’s sugar in a bowl.

Drop heaping tablespoonfuls of dough into balls and roll in confectioner’s sugar until lightly coated and place on baking sheet.

Bake for about 10 minutes or until the edges are lightly browned. Cool for 2-3 minutes on the cookie sheet and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
