Prep Time15 mins
Cook Time10 mins
Total Time25 mins
Servings: 1g


  • Sugar Free Lemon Cake Mix- 1 box 15-16 ounces. If you really are in a bind try a white or angel sugar free cake mix with 1 lemon tablespoon of lemon zest added to it.
  • To make your own lemon cake mix combine these:
  • Flour AP - 2 ½ Cups
  • Salt- 1 teaspoon
  • Baking Powder- ½ teaspoon
  • Baking Soda- ½ teaspoon.
  • Lemon Zest-1 tablespoon.
  • Granular Sugar Alternative- 1 ½ cups equivalent to sugar.
  • Eggs- 2.
  • Vegetable Oil- ⅔ cups.
  • Lemon Extract- 1 teaspoon.
  • Vanilla Extract- 1 teaspoon.
  • Optional- topping such as powdered sugar or glaze see post for details.


  • Preheat your oven to 350 and prep a cookie pan for nonstick. I use parchment paper.
  • If you are making your own cake mix, combine the ingredients listing in #1 above together in a mixing bowl. Otherwise, pour your lemon cookie mix into a mixing bowl.
  • To your ingredients in the mixing bowl, beat in the eggs one at a time. Then add the vegetable oil, lemon extract, and the vanilla extract.
  • This batter will be a bit looser than a normal cookie batter. It will also bake to be a bit 'puffier' than a normal cookie as we are basing this on a cake mix. Thus, your will need to drop the cookies onto the cookie sheet rather than using a scoop or rolling them out. If using granular sugar alternative, place the alternative into a shallow bowl and drip the cookie batter into the bowl and cover with sugar. Then place the cookies onto the cookie sheet.
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes. Cookies will be soft in the middle with slight browning on the sides/bottom when ready.
