Needed to make 90 cookies for a Christmas Cookie exchange and decided to try these for a few reasons: pretty, tasty, and inexpensiveo make. I read the other reviews and decided to use the lemon zest anyway. Don't skip this part! It gives the cookie a plate-cleansing, bright flavor, but just a touch. You don't even need to use a full teaspon. Also, even though I doubled the recipe, I only got 45 cookies! I used a 1 inch melon baller. I suspect I bought the wrong box mix: so WARNING- make sure it is Duncan Hines CAKE and not Red Velvet CUPCAKE box mix. I guess the box mix would have had a bigger amount. BUT that all being said, the cookies turned out delicious and beautiful! Next time, I will use the rigt box mix! Oh. And these cookies ARE messy but worth it!
