Can I just take a moment to say how excited I am that these cookies have come into my life? My hubby is a total cookie man and well, can you beat THREE ingredients?! I know I’m not the first person to make cookies this way, so while I’m not re-inventing the wheel here, I just had to pass it along for anyone looking for a cookie that is easy AND delish!

They’re chewy and moist and couldn’t be simpler.


One box of lemon cake mix (I used Pillsbury)

1/3 cup of oil

3 eggs


That’s it! Mix and drop by spoonfuls onto a greased pan and bake @350 for about 11-13 minutes. I know recipe ratios can vary from recipe to recipe, so if you have another cake mix on hand other than Pillsbury, simply follow the directions on the back, but leave out the water.

This recipe doesn’t make a ton of cookies, so if you’re making them for a crowd, probably 2 or more boxes would be a good idea…and really just a good idea in general because they are a major crowd pleaser.

I have a few ideas for building on this basic recipe like adding poppy seeds or mixing up a simple glaze with lemon juice and powdered sugar. However I was so excited that I forgot to get creative, but I think that’s OK because even with 3 ingredients, these cookies are divine.
