My Mom made these amazing soft and chewy lemon cookies when I was a kid. I just loved them, and when I became old enough to bake them myself, I was downright shocked at how easy the recipe was! Simple enough to make as an “everyday dessert”. Are you ready?

Lemon and Red Velvet COOL WHIP Cookies Ingredients Chewy Lemon COOL WHIP Cookies!

Yep- that’s right….. this deliciousness comes from just 3 simple ingredients….

1 boxed Lemon cake mix

2 cups of COOL WHIP Whipped Topping

1 egg

Making Chewy Lemon COOL WHIP Cookies Chewy Lemon COOL WHIP Cookies!

It’s as easy as dumping it all into the mixing bowl and stirring it together for a few minutes. You’ll notice that the cookie dough is VERY sticky. So you will need to chill it for an hour or two prior to preparing the cookies for the oven!

After the dough is thoroughly chilled, roll small balls of the dough between your palms to form the cookie, then drop into powdered sugar and coat completely before placing them on parchment paper-covered cookie sheets. And yes, at this stage the cookie dough is still pretty sticky. Just dust your palms with the powdered sugar and you’ll be good to go!

Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for 10-12 minutes, until the edges are golden brown.

Hmm…. I wonder if this everyday dessert would work just as well with another kind of cake mix?

We are huge fans of Red Velvet cake in our house…. so I thought it would fun to try this same recipe using a red velvet cake mix…..

It was hard to say which kind my kids loved more- the lemon cookies or the red velvet ones…. because they devoured them all! So delicious. And so easy!

Silly question – do you need to use a machine to mix ingredients or can you do it by hand?

You could likely do it by hand…. but as the dough becomes sticky it will start to take some serious arm muscles! Hmm…. this could make for a good pre-cookie-eating workout though!

Hi Diana! Depending on how large you make the cookies, this recipe averages 4-5 dozen cookies. Enjoy!

Anyone have any idea what the weightwatchers points for one of these cookies would be? My mom is doing the diet and I’m planning to make her a gift basket with lots of little things – among them, a decorated jar filled with these bad boys! I wanted to be considerate and include the point value for her, but I’m not sure how to do it for just a single cookie. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I wish that I knew Sarah…. but I haven’t used the point system myself- so I don’t have anything to compare it to.

Can you use light cool whip in the recipe?

I have never tried it with light Cool Whip- but I would imagine that it would work…..


14 Krista August 28, 2013 at 11:22 am

Thanks Sharon! A couple more questions for you…Does the cool whip need to be softened before mixing? How should these be stored?

Hi again Krista!

The Cool Whip should be from the fridge, not the freezer…. but not room temperature (or it will turn to mush). I store my cookies in a Tupperware-type container on the kitchen counter with the lid fully sealed. They don’t last long (because the kids inhale them!)


16 Kathy October 14, 2013 at 4:14 pm

Can these cookies be shipped or do they need refrigerated?

They can definitely be shipped- and do not need refrigeration!

Anyone ever tried this recipe with Spice Cake? I’m thinking about doing this and wondered if it made very good cookies or too much spice?


19 rebecca November 25, 2013 at 8:23 pm

I am using strawberry and orange cake mixes …thinking I
Might add in some mini choc. Chips???


20 Lindsay December 18, 2013 at 1:00 pm

I did mine with spice cake mix for the holidays, it’s good! However you might want to mention the fact you need powdered sugar in the beginning. And that this is very very sticky. And that they expand a lot. It was my first time making them and those were my troubles. Still a good cookie
