Lemon Crinkle Cookies with Cream Cheese Frosting
So, when a friend asked me to make a non-chocolate chip cookie for her summer wedding to contribute to her reception's cookie bar, I thought of my summery, lemon cookies I had tasted.
These are sweet--I love sweet--so all you bitter-dark chocolate lovers out there probably won't relish these cookies. If you have a super sweet tooth, you will love these. They are perfect for the summer. Just remember to refrigerate the frosting before you serve them.
1 box of lemon cake mix
1 stick of butter
1/2 tsp vanilla
3 cups powdered sugar
8 oz. cream cheese at room temp
Mix the cookie ingredients. Roll into small balls and bake for 10-12 minutes at 350. They will have crinkles all over when they are done.
Frosting: Mix the cream cheese until smooth. Mix in the sugar and vanilla. This will yield frosting for about 3-4 batches of cookies, so you will most likely have left over frosting--bummer! Wink, wink.
