  • 1 1/2 cup lemon boxed cake mix
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 t baking soda
  • 3/4 cup butter or crisco shortening softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar packed
  • 1 large egg at room temperature
  • 1/2 t vanilla extract
  • 1 T fresh lemon juice
  • 1 t lemon zest
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips


  1. In a large bowl, whisk together boxed cake mix, flour, and baking soda. Set aside.
  2. In a electric mixer bowl, cream the butter (or Crisco shortening), and sugars together on medium speed.

  3. Add the egg, vanilla extract, lemon juice, and lemon zest. Mix until creamy.

  4. Add the flour mixture to wet ingredients. Mix just until combined and not a second more. DO NOT over mix.
  5. Fold in the white chocolate chips.
  6. Cover the dough bowl and refrigerate for a least an hour. I refrigerated my dough for several hours. The refrigeration really helps hold the dough together and makes it much easier when scooping out mounds for the cookie tray.
  7. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  8. Scoop out chilled dough into tablespoon sized balls and place on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet.
  9. Bake between 9-11 minutes. (I mentioned in post above, I think 10 mins is perfect and 12 minutes a little too much).
  10. Cool cookies on baking sheet for four minutes, then pull cookies while still on the parchment paper onto a wire rack to cook completely.
