Lemon Iced Cookies

Scratch baking is a fairly new concept to me. My entire baking repertoire prior to starting my blog has been with the help of a cake mix.  So, I was ecstatic when the Foodbuzz Tastemaker Program sent me a very generous amount of coupons for Ducan Hines products. If you been to this blog before, you know I love to take a cake mix and give it a twist, spin or reinvent it to something else.  That's what I did with this box of lemon cake mix.  I made some lemon cookies and used a fairly new product to me the Ducan Hines Glazes to ice them.  I have to say I maybe a magician because these cookies literally disappeared at my house.  My husband ate almost half of them by himself.  He could not believe that I used a cake mix to make these lemony cookies.  Everyone loved the glaze. This Ducan Hines Glaze is a wonderful product because you can glaze any dessert and take it from simple to exceptional in seconds.  I can't wait to use more of my coupons and come up with more "tricked" out cake recipes.

1 box of Ducan Hines Lemon Supreme Cake Mix
1 Egg
4 oz of plain cream cheese
1/3 cup of canola oil
Ducan Hines Glazes for drizzling

Add your ingredients into a bowl and then use an electric mixer to mix in the cake mix. 
Drop cookie dough onto a sprayed baking sheet. I used two spoons coated with some canola oil so I could do this easily. Then bake in a 350 degree oven for 15-17 minutes.  Allow the cookies to cool off on the baking sheet for another 5 minutes.

When the cookies are mostly cool, follow the instructions on the glaze bottle  and pour the glaze over the cookies.

Makes 1 1/2 dozen cookies.  Enjoy. Store in an airtight container.
