Lemon Crinkle Cookies

18 Nov

This is another Facebook recipe. The image looks like this:


The recipe follows:

Low Fat Crinkle Cookies


1 box lemon cake mix (any kind)
1 egg, lightly beaten
2 cups Cool Whip, thawed (8 ounce container)
½ to 1 cup powdered sugar


Preheat oven to 350.
In a large bowl, combine cake mix, egg, and Cool Whip. The batter will be sticky!

Form dough into tablespoonfuls and roll in powdered sugar.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, until the edges are golden. Allow to cool 1 minute on baking sheet; then remove.

I tried this recipe with mixed results. I gathered all the ingredients:


I mixed it all up with help from my little friend:


After I realized how sticky the batter was, I got really lazy and treated them like drop cookies. I dropped them onto wax paper and sprinkled the sugar over them. They came out like this:


They’re not that good looking. I followed the directions closer for the next batch, using spoons to roll the cookies in the powdered sugar. I was hoping they would stay round and look like the original picture. I was disappointed when they flattened out like any other drop cookie:


They also lost a good amount of the powdered sugar. This second batch was covered all the way around with the sugar when it went into the oven; it came out with sparse amounts of sugar.

The cookies were very yummy and lemon-y. I highly recommend these cookies if you want a lemon flavored cookie. If you’re hoping for appearance, however, then I don’t recommend these at all. They don’t come out anything like the picture.
