These super-easy-to-make lemon cookies have a crackled texture after baking. And did I say EASY? Three ingredients. That’s it!
I snipped this sweetheart of a recipe from the newspaper many years ago. And since I love the taste of lemon any way I can get it, I fell in love with them at first bite. I’m keeping this recipe forever!
Just when you think the dough won’t come together, the Cool Whip does its job and voila! Smooth, sticky cookie dough appears. And since it’s so sticky, here’s a tip – fill a small bowl with powdered sugar, take a spoonful of the dough and plop it into the powdered sugar. So-o much easier to shape into a little patty before putting on the cookie sheet.
If you’re an empty nester who doesn’t want to bake a large quantity, or if you live alone, or if you simply want/need a fast batch of cookies that won’t take long to bake, this will be your go-to recipe. Yield is only 22 – 24 cookies.
