-Preheat oven to 370 degrees Fahrenheit (yes, I mean 370.) Grease baking sheets.

-Combine and mix cake mix, eggs, butter and lemon zest in a large bowl until blended.

-Mix sugar and cornstarch, and set it aside.

-Roll the dough into 1 inch balls (in this case, they are way bigger, like 3 inchers!) into the sugar mixture. Place them two inches apart onto the pans.

-Bake 9 minutes, let cool, and enjoy!

The cookie itself isn’t that sweet but it is definitely balanced by the sugar on the outside of the cookie. The cookies are meant to puff up and crackle, hence the “crinkle” cookie. If you love red velvet cake, brownies, and cookies, then combine those, then you’ll love these!

Let me know if you end up making these scrumptious cookies! Have you ever made crinkle cookies?

  1. I did chocolate-cinnamon crinkle cookies last Christmas (think I ate half of them). Never thought you could use cake mix to make cookies. Learn something new every day! Those would be perfect for Valentine’s ❤

  2. I love me some red velvet! I still haven’t gotten a conclusive answer about exactly WHAT flavour red velvet truly is… is it just chocolate? Never thought to use cake mix for cookies… but I guess the base is pretty much the same? Just vary the amount of liquids and it’ll be more fluffy aka cake? I did once make pancakes out of muffin mix and it was AWESOME. But we were camping we were desperate because it wasn’t like any of us brought a muffin pan lol.
