Fantastically easy and yummy! I also tried this recipe with orange cake mix with orange extract in the frosting and served it at a meeting of Very Fussy Ladies who raved about them. I do agree that they are best baked exactly 8 minutes, no more, no less.

I hated this recipe. I think this is the first time I am giving a recipe anything below a 3 star. It was easy, alright, but the cookies werent strong in taste, just in smell. The icing was thick! I had to keep adding milk. And it tasted far too sweet, not like lemon at all. I will never make these cookies again.

I was burnt out on 'Lemon Squares' for my Dad every year (HE LOVES LEMON), and gave this new cookie a try. It was just PERFECT! The cookies baked up so pretty even w/out the icing. I did mix up the icing and drizzled it a wee bit on top while they were warm. I just wanted the flavor of the icing more than anything, and didn't want them to look 'iced'...I don't even really care for Lemon flavor treats, but these were very very GOOD and Dad loved them too! :) Thank you for the recipe!

I was looking for a quick recipe to use up my box of lemon cake mix, and this was it! VERY easy and yummy. I baked my batch at exactly 8 minutes and they were perfect. I also used canned lemon frosting instead of homemade and they're just as delicious. Definitely a keeper.

Very soft and chewy! I doubled the milk for the icing so I could drizzle it over the warm cookies!!

These are great with or without the frosting. I got about 3 dozen medium size cookies, and they were perfect after 8 minutes in the oven. I didn't have lemon extract so I used a few squirts of lemon juice, and it gave the icing a hint of lemon flavor. Delicious!

I found that these little cookies, do not necessarily need the icing, they are just as good without, if you don't happen to have the icing ingredients on hand.

Tasted overly sweet and had a bit of a chemical-aftertaste, probably because of the box cake mix. However, it was quick and easy. I will not make these again.
