Lemon Sunshine Cookies

I am beginning to think that there are 101 things that you can do with a boxed cake mix (it's true). This includes making Lemon Sunshine Cookies. With only a few simple ingredients, this has become my go-to recipe for whenever I need to take in a sweet treat to the office. You can use any flavor of cake mix to make these. Go with your favorite (I love lemon) or try something new like a spice cake mix with pumpkin pie spice for a unique October flavored cookie. I could think of a million great combinations that I'd like to try!

What you need:

1 egg
1 teaspoon lemon extract
1 10 oz tub of Cool Whip
1 18 oz boxed cake mix
2 cups powdered sugar (for rolling)

What you do:

Mix the first 4 ingredients with an electric mixer until blended. Make small balls (2" in diameter is good) and roll them in powdered sugar. Place on a cookie sheet and bake for 12 minutes at 360. Enjoy!
