SOFT LEMON COOKIES WITH LEMON FROSTING
1/3 Cup Margarine or Butter, softened
1 Package Lemon Cake Mix
1 Tub of Lemon Frosting
1/3 Cup Shortening
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Stir about half of the dry cake mix, shortening, margarine and egg in a medium bowl until well mixed.
Stir in remaining cake mix until smooth and well mixed.
Drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls about 2 inches apart onto cookie sheet.
Bake 10-12 minutes or until light brown around edges.
Cool 1 minute on cookie sheet and then remove to cool completely.
Frost the cookies with the lemon frosting and enjoy.
*Note* These cookies are very soft and alot like the "Archway Lemon Cookies" that they sell in the red box at the grocery store.
1/2 c. lemon juice (fresh is definately the way to go - don't use the imitation stuff)
2 c. confectioners' sugar
Stir lemon juice into confectioners' sugar. Mix until smooth. Be patient - it will eventually become smooth.
