Lemon Cream Cheese Cookies

When I mention baking my little helper comes running into the room. She loves to bake and although it slows me down I love having the help. The other day I was writing out a grocery list and she was adding everything we need to make lemon cookies to the list. It doesn’t take a whole lot to talk me into baking these cookies.


These cookies are easy to make and are absolutely delicious. They are made out a lemon cake box mix.


Combine one Lemon Cake Mix (15.25 oz box), 1/2 cup shortening and two eggs together.


Measure out approximately one tbsp of dough and roll into a ball. Place on the cookie sheet and back for 9 to 11 minutes. Pull out of the oven and let them cool down completely.


While the cookies are cooling down make the filling. Combine 8 oz of softened cream cheese, 2 tsp freshly squeezed lemon juice, 1 tsp finely grated lemon zest and two cups of powdered sugar.

Once the cookies have cooled frost the back of two cookies and stick them together. I like to chill the cookies for at least an hour in the fridge before serving.
