The Sweet Spot

I'm thinking I'm going to make this a once a week post. Something sweet. Maybe Sundays. I like lemon so here is an easy recipe for lemon sugar snap cookies.


Easy Lemon Sugar Snaps
about 3-1/2 dozen cookies
Prep: 25 minutes
Bake: 9 minutes per batch

3/4 cup butter, softened
1 egg
1 package 2-layer-size lemon cake mix with pudding in the mix
1 cup yellow cornmeal
2 tablespoons finely shredded lemon peel
Coarse sugar or granulated sugar

1. Preheat oven to 375 degree F. In a large mixing bowl beat butter and egg with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Gradually beat in cake mix until combined; stir in cornmeal and lemon peel, if necessary knead dough to blend.

2. Using 1 tablespoon of dough for each cookie, roll into 1-inch balls. Roll in sugar. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets.

3. Bake for 9 to 10 minutes or until bottoms are lightly browned. Let cool on cookie sheet for 1 minute. Transfer to wire rack. Cool completely. Makes about 3-1/2 dozen cookies.
