Lemon Cool Whip Cookies

Lemon Cool Whip Cookies

Ahh yes, it’s FI-NAL-LY summertime in Chicago! After a balmy and mild start to the summer in Chi City, we experienced temps of 90+ degrees this past weekend and I LOVED every moment of it. To take a (brief) break from life outdoors, I popped inside to make a new batch of cake batter cookies. (During my first attempt at cake batter cookies, I made these yummy PINK Strawberry White Chocolate Cookies.) This time, I selected a lemon cake mix, in honor of the glorious SUNSHINE. (But seriously, can you tell how happy I was to see the sun?)

Mixing Cool Whip in the batter makes for a super airy and fluffy cookie. The light whipped topping also brings out the flavor of the cake mix.

For an extra lemon-y punch, I paired my cookies with a tall glass of ice cold lemonade. Enjoy!
