Cookie Recipe of the Week: Lemon Crinkle Cookies Just 3 Ingredients, No Measuring!

Lemon Crinkle Mix Cookies are so-named because their tops crinkle after baking.

Also sometimes known as Lemon Cake Mix Cookies or 3-Ingredient Cookies, these have (surprise) just three ingredients.

And you don’t need to measure anything. Just dump all the ingredients into a bowl and combine them.

Then drop teaspoonfuls of the cookie dough into powdered sugar, gently roll them, and set them on a baking sheet.

Surfaces crinkle when baked. The lemon flavor is perfect for spring!

Prep time: 15 minutes
Bake time: 9-12 minutes
Makes about 3-4 dozen cookies

Bluprint: DIY Free for 7 Days

If you like to make or bake or build or create – or if you’re into DIY – you’ll want to spend some time wandering around Bluprint’s site for ideas (formerly Craftsy.)

I confess that I nearly go on overload when I log on. It’s so much fun! You can search all kinds of classes and downloadable tutorials. Just tune in on your own schedule and re-watch as often as you like. Plus find plenty of support along the way in chat forums with fellow enthusiasts in art, quilting, paper craft, embroidery, photography, gardening, spinning, woodworking, baking, cooking, jewelry making…

One thing I like to do is regularly check Bluprint’s free classes listing. Have fun. I know I will.
