Holiday Baking: Lemon Crinkle Cookies

These cookies are super light. I mean, holding one in your hand is like holding a feather. They smell like lemon Girl Scout cookies. They taste good too, but I like “cake”-ier cookies, personally. These were like eating lemon clouds.


Lemon Crinkle Cookies



  • 1 (8 ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 (18.25 ounce) package lemon cake mix
  • 1/3 cup confectioners' sugar for decoration


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Lightly grease baking sheets.
  2. Beat together the whipped topping and eggs together. Add the lemon cake mix and continue to mix. Dough will be sticky.  Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  3. Drop by teaspoonfuls into a bowl of confectioners' sugar and roll to coat. Place cookies on the prepared baking sheets. Bake  for 9-11 minutes.  Cool on racks.

Holiday Baking: Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

I love to bake treats as gifts and to just have around the house during the holidays. I wanted to share some of my favorite recipes as well as some new ones I'm trying out this year.


I found the recipe a few years ago online, but haven’t been able to find it since. Doesn’t really matter though because these are the EASIEST cookies to make and they are amazing.

What You Need:

Then all you do is mix the two ingredients together, form balls of dough, put them on the cookie pan, and then bake per instructions on the sugar cookie dough packaging. They are VERY delicate cookies so take care in handling them (this really just means more broken cookies for the cook). These are always the biggest hit of all the cookies I bake.
