One of my boys is absolutely in love with lemon. He always wants me to make lemon meringue pie or lemon bars. I get tired of always making the same two things over and over. So, I am always searching for another lemony treat that I can make for my boys to enjoy.

While perusing Pinterest the other day, I ran across this lemony cookie recipe that looked so easy and so delicious. I just had to try it. I’m glad to say that it did not disappoint. I liked it so much that I thought I would share it with you so you can enjoy it too. It also makes for a great summer cookie.

Lemon Ball Cookies

1 box lemon cake mix

1 egg, beaten

1 container cool whip, thawed (8 ounces)

1 cup powdered sugar

Throw the cake mix, egg and cool whip into a blender and beat until combined. Pour powdered sugar onto a plate. Scoop up one teaspoon of batter and roll it into a ball with your hands. Roll each ball into the powdered sugar, and then place each ball on a cookie sheet. Bake cookies for 8 minutes at 350 degrees.
