Sometimes, I like playing with cake mix. It doesn't happen that often as I am a big believer in from scratch cooking, but when it does it's usually a retro recipe. I'm not sure where lemon crinkle cake mix cookies come into play for the whole “retro” bit, but they encapsulate two things that I love : cake mix cookies and lemon.
Big lover of the lemon over here, for sure. And cake mix cookies are just FUN to make.

These are most likely a recipe from a boxed cake mix company, Betty Crocker or the like and quite possibly a vintage one. When I came across it I knew right away that I wanted to bake them up and start feeling like spring was here. Lemon is one of those bright flavours that we associate with Easter and spring and coming out of our winter hibernation.
These lemon crinkle cookies are light, lemony and oh-so chewy. The whole family absolutely loved them – even Mr Magpie, who's not usually a lemon lover.
I also discovered that lemon crinkle cookies taste even better the next day after being in a sealed container. Ooooh yes. They are perfection when you leave then for a day!
Happy baking babes!
