I am not a baker. I bake once a year for a Christmas Cookie exchange, so I look for easy recipes. I hate all the mess and time it takes me to make some cookies. I just tried a test batch of these and they turned out very good. I am pleasantly surprised and will bring them to the cookie exchange.
A few notes. As others have stated, cake mixes now are 15.25 oz, not 18.25. (Someone should update this recipe). I added 1/3 cup of flour to the mix and it was fine. Instead of the lemon extract, I used 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice and some lemon zest. No fruit loops taste, just lemony.
I used a small scoop and made them pretty small. I got 4 dozen from one box of mix. I used parchment paper, so the bottoms did not burn. I also baked them at 350 for 12 minutes. Crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside.
I will make these again!
