I love the addition of rice krispies to the basic cake mix cookie recipe! You can add another egg, and another cup of cereal-- you'll get a stickier dough, but the extra crunch is great! Or you can substitute plain/lemon yogurt for some of the oil-- adds more of a kick, and reduces the fat!

These cookies sounded so good to me, and the texture was good with the chewy/crunchy combo. However, they had an off-taste to them. They tasted fake, if that makes sense. Too chemically tasting or something. It's like the difference between boxed brownies and from-scratch brownies. It's a HUGE difference.

I made these for a party and everyone LOVED them. Almost everyone asked for the recipe. I live at high altitude, so I added 1/4 cup of flour and 2 tbs lemon juice. I piped some lemon frosting on each cookie. So Easy! So Good! Would have taken a picture, but there aren't any left.

Oh my! This recipe was so wonderful! I am doing a bake sale for Cystic Fibrosis and I am sure people are going to love these! I know we do...I used just lemon cake and added vanilla pudding to the ingredients(dry not made), used 2 eggs like previously mentioned and also an extra cup of rice crispies and cooked for 14 minutes in my oven. I topped them with lemon icing! Divine!!! Making these again soon!!! Thanks so much!

I made these for a baby shower, and everyone loved them!! I added a lemon icing to top the cookies with and found that they were too crispy if i baked them for 9 minutes like the recipe calls. So I ended up leaving them in the oven for about 6 minutes and they were just right!!!! :)

Couldn't believe it would be so quick and easy and still good, but BOY! These are awesome. I did add more than one cup of crispy rice cereal... maybe cup and a half. The crispiness was right on. And the lemon flavor was perfect. This recipe will go to the top of my cookie list.

The taste is great! I'm not crazy about the texture with the krispies, but everyone at the party loved them!

I made these little delights to be included in the treats that I made for gifts for Christmas. Everyone just loved them! I also drizzled the powdered sugar icing over them so they looked beautiful as well. VERY EASY RECIPE! I followed the recipe as posted and was very pleasantly surprised!
