On Sunday nights, my family has our weekly “treat” or dessert. We are trying to get out of the habit of eating sweets too often. Although some weeks we have more than just the Sunday dessert, this is a goal of ours to try to make sweets more special and less often. We’ve been trying to lower our overall sugar intake for our family and thus Sunday dessert was born. This past week, my husband and I chose my Apple Crisp Parfait but my kids wanted cookies. I had some cake mix so I figured I’d just make some cake mix cookies since they are so ridiculously quick and easy and then…. dun dun dun…. my kiddos could not agree on a flavor to save their lives. C wanted Lemon Cookies and P wanted Strawberry. I giggled and asked “why don’t I mix them and make Strawberry Lemonade Cookies!” You guys… Best. Idea. Ever. They were so quick and easy to make and taste amazing. The kids LOVED them! Try making these delicious Strawberry Lemonade Cookies you wont regret it!
- 1 box of Strawberry Cake Mix
- 1 box of Lemon Cake Mix
- 2/3 cup of vegetable oil
- 4 eggs
- 1 Tbs of lemon juice (optional)
- About 1/4 cup of powdered sugar
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper or non-stick spray. Mix all ingredients except the powdered sugar into a mixing bowl and mix thoroughly. Dough will be sticky.
Roll dough into 1″ balls (a little smaller than a golf ball) and roll the dough ball in the powdered sugar. I put my powdered sugar in a cereal bowl and rolled it in there so it was less messy.
Place rolled dough balls on cookie sheet and bake for 9-10 minutes. Allow to cool for about 3-5 minutes and transfer to cooling rack.
