Lemon Sugar Cookies

You will need:

  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 egg
  • 1 pkg. lemon cake mix
  • 1 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 2 tbsp. grated lemon peel
  • sugar

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a large mixing bowl beat the butter and egg for about 30 seconds. Gradually beat in the cake mix until combined; now on low speed add the cornmeal and peel.

Roll the dough into 1 inch balls, roll in sugar and place about 2 inches apart on  a cookie sheet. Bake for 10 minutes (until bottoms are lightly browned). Remove from oven and let cool for a minute before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

Makes about 3 1/2 dozen cookies
