I love the addition of rice krispies to the basic cake mix cookie recipe! You can add another egg, and another cup of cereal-- you'll get a stickier dough, but the extra crunch is great! Or you can substitute plain/lemon yogurt for some of the oil-- adds more of a kick, and reduces the fat! Read More

These cookies sounded so good to me and the texture was good with the chewy/crunchy combo. However they had an off-taste to them. They tasted fake if that makes sense. Too chemically tasting or something. It's like the difference between boxed brownies and from-scratch brownies. It's a HUGE difference. Read More

Oh my! This recipe was so wonderful! I am doing a bake sale for Cystic Fibrosis and I am sure people are going to love these! I know we do...I used just lemon cake and added vanilla pudding to the ingredients(dry not made), used 2 eggs like previously mentioned and also an extra cup of rice crispies and cooked for 14 minutes in my oven. I topped them with lemon icing! Divine!!! Making these again soon!!! Thanks so much! Read More

I made these for a party and everyone LOVED them. Almost everyone asked for the recipe. I live at high altitude so I added 1/4 cup of flour and 2 tbs lemon juice. I piped some lemon frosting on each cookie. So Easy! So Good! Would have taken a picture but there aren't any left. Read More

I made these for a baby shower and everyone loved them!! I added a lemon icing to top the cookies with and found that they were too crispy if i baked them for 9 minutes like the recipe calls. So I ended up leaving them in the oven for about 6 minutes and they were just right!!!!:) Read More

Couldn't believe it would be so quick and easy and still good but BOY! These are awesome. I did add more than one cup of crispy rice cereal... maybe cup and a half. The crispiness was right on. And the lemon flavor was perfect. This recipe will go to the top of my cookie list. Read More

I made these little delights to be included in the treats that I made for gifts for Christmas. Everyone just loved them! I also drizzled the powdered sugar icing over them so they looked beautiful as well. VERY EASY RECIPE! I followed the recipe as posted and was very pleasantly surprised! Read More
