Just Desserts: Lemon Whippersnap Cookies

By Charlotte on December 29, 2013 8:49 AM

No time to bake?  You can still treat yourself and your guests to homemade cookies thanks to one of our favorite recipes from Food.com.  My friend Bev, one of the best cooks I know besides my Mom, turned me on to these speedy delights!

With 475,000+ recipes, Food.com has become one of my favorite cooking resources.  Membership is free, and you can search by title, ingredient or member.  The site also includes meal planning tips, recipes for special diets, community discussions where you can request recipes from other members and more.  I plan to explore all these cool features when I have more time!   

Lemon Whippersnaps

Makes about 24 cookies

Combine the dry cake mix, Cool Whip and egg in a large bowl, stirring until you reach a cookie-dough consistency.  Drop by spoonfuls into powdered sugar and roll.

Bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes.

Approximately 131 calories per cookie (less if you use Cool Whip Lite).
