    This is now a favorite at my house. My husband loves them, and I am constantly being asked for the recipe. They are easy, quick and taste amazing. I used Fat Free cool whip, to reduce the calories, and cannot tell the difference. I now keep the lemon cake mix on hand at all times!  -  08 May 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I made these for my father-in-law who loves lemon and he devoured them. They didn't even last the whole weekend! I used a little bit more cool whip (the entire 8 oz container). It is important to chill the dough even between batches because the dough gets pretty sticky.  -  19 Sep 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Delicious but tempermental little cookies. I love the flavor of these as they are not too sweet, but they need to be watched closely so that they don't get too done or not done enough. Maybe I should use parchement paper as they almost always stick to my good nonstick baking sheets. Still, they are wonderful when the turn out right!  -  18 Dec 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
