There is a lot to love with these cookies. Have you ever tried a cake mix cookie? Whenever I make a cake mix cookie, I know exactly what to expect. They are crisp on the outside and soft and chewy in the middle. These cookies also happen to be drizzled white chocolate.
Lemon is not usually a go-to flavor for me, but I have found that my readers love it. My lemon cream pie cookie cups went crazy last summer, so I figured it was time to make you guys another lemon treat. I decided to add lemon zest to the dough because it amplifies the flavor and adds a bit of freshness.
Since this recipe uses cake mix, these cookies rise a lot. So before I put them in the oven, I press down the top of the dough so that the cookies are a bit flatter. However, if you like your cookies to have a dome, there is no need to push them down. In order to keep my cookies even, I always use a cookie scoop. I prefer larger cookies, so I like to use a two-tablespoon size scoop.
I always like to garnish my treats with a little bit of pizazz. For the white chocolate drizzle, I find it best to use a high quality chocolate because it melts more smoothly. I melt my white chocolate in the microwave at 50% power, which prevents the chocolate from burning or seizing up. I use a piping bag to drizzle my chocolate, but a sealable plastic bag will work. You just need to tip off the very tip of the bag.
The possibilities are endless when it comes to a cake mix cookie. I hope you will make these your own.
