Cake Mix Lemon Crinkle Cookies

Cake Mix Cookies are a big hit in our house, especially as the kids are getting older and learning to bake.

They love the different varieties of cookies they can make by mixing up cake mix flavors with different add-ins to personalize them to each person’s taste preferences.

Homemade Cookies aren’t too hard to make, but using cake mixes are so very easy to make, very delicious in flavor, and can be a fun treat, too!

Lemon Cookies are also popular in our house.

We recently purchased a box of Lemon Girl Scout cookies and they were GONE in 10 minutes. The boys wanted more, so I told them to check the pantry for a Lemon Cake Mix and make a batch of lemon cake mix cookies.

As they browsed my recipe box with other cake mix cookie recipes they decided that they wanted crinkle lemon cookies.

Cake Mix Lemon Crinkle CookiesHow do I store Baked Cake Mix Lemon Crinkle Cookies?  

Place the cooled cookies in an airtight container on the counter, they should stay fresh for up to a week when properly stored.

Can I freeze Baked Cake Mix Lemon Crinkle Cookies?

Place the cooled cookies in an airtight container. To prevent them from sticking together, you should place parchment paper or wax paper between each layer of cookies. Be sure to clearly label the container with the contents and date. When properly stored, they should be freezer safe for up to 3 months.

Can I freeze Unbaked Cake Mix Lemon Crinkle Cookie Dough? 

Yes! The prepared cookie dough can be frozen to be baked later. Place scooped cookie dough balls that have been rolled in powdered sugar on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper into the freezer for about 2 hours to flash freeze them. Transfer to an airtight freezer safe container, clearly label with the contents and date. Frozen unbaked cookie dough balls should stay freezer safe for up to 3 months when properly stored.

When ready to bake, removed the number of cookie dough balls you’d like to bake from the freezer container. Place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper to thaw while the oven is preheating. Bake according to recipe, but sometimes frozen cookie dough balls need an extra couple of minutes to bake so you’ll need to check on them.
