    Lavender Lemon Cake Mix Cookies Recipe

    Lavender Lemon Cake Mix Cookies Recipe

    I recently bought a bag of dried lavender to use in my baking and crafting. In addition to some yummy lavender sugar scrub, I also made a yummy batch of lavender vanilla cookies. A few years ago I fell in love with the simplicity of Christmas cookies made with boxed cake mixes, and I love coming up with new taste ideas. In addition to lavender vanilla, I also made some lavender lemon cookies using lemon cake mix. Super easy and super tasty!

    Ingredients

    • 1 box of lemon cake mix
    • 6 tablespoons of softened butter
    • 2 tablespoons of water
    • 2 eggs
    • 6 tablespoons of dried lavender

    Directions

    1. Preheat the oven to 375°.
    2. Blend 3 tablespoons of the dried lavender into a powder.
    3. Beat together the softened butter, eggs, and water in a large bowl.
    4. Add the lavender powder to the wet mixture.
    5. Slowly add the cake mix and remaining dried lavender to the wet mixture. Combine thoroughly.
    6. Drop teaspoons of the cookie dough onto a parchment-lined baking sheet. Leave 2 inches between the dough balls.
    7. Bake the cookies for 9 minutes or until the bottoms begin to brown.
    8. Allow the baked cookies to rest for a minute before removing from the cookie sheet.
    9. Store the lavender lemon cake mix cookies in an airtight container.
