Happy Saturday everyone! I definitely don’t pride myself on being a very good cook, so whenever I find a simple recipe, I’m quick to give it a try! A while ago, I pinned a 3-ingredient Lemon Supreme Cookie recipe from Somewhat Simple, because…um…how can you mess up something with 3 ingredients? And even if you do, you’ll only be out a few bucks. 🙂 I went ahead and gave them a try, and I wanted to share the recipe with you, too!
First, gather your ingredients: A box of Lemon Supreme Cake Mix (I used Duncan Hines, but I’m sure any brand would work), 1 8oz tub of Cool Whip softened, and 1 egg. Yes, those are the only 3 ingredients you need!
Go ahead and preheat your oven to 350 degrees, as well.
Next, combine your ingredients in your mixer.
Once the ingredients are mixed, the dough will be thick and taffy-like…not creamy and smooth like I was expecting. Use a tablespoon to place large hunks of dough on a greased cookie sheet. I was able to make 19 cookies with this recipe, though your number may vary depending on your cookie size.
Bake your cookies at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. After you remove them from the oven, let them cool on the cookie sheet for about 10 minutes.
After your cookies are cooled (or heck, while they’re still warm), eat up!
I found these cookies to be light and refreshing. They definitely aren’t my favorite cookies, but I’m not a huge fan of lemon (then why did you make lemon cookies, doofus?). I wouldn’t crave one of these like I would a chocolate chip or peanut butter cookie, but I think they would be great as part of a dessert buffet for a bridal or baby shower since they are quite airy and not too heavy.
If you give them a try, let me know what you think!
