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
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
