I don’t know about you, but I love cookies with only 4 ingredients. These almond joy cookies also only have 4 ingredients!


I’ve been busy baking cookies to give away to friends and family for Christmas, and these cookies were really easy to make and great tasting too. If you make them early, just place them in the freezer in a ziploc bag and freeze them until Christmas.


Lemon Crinkle Cookies



  • 1 box lemon cake mix (with pudding in it)
  • 8-oz. container Cool Whip
  • 1 egg
  • 1 c. powdered sugar




Feel free to double this recipe. One recipe only makes about 2 dozen cookies. Also make sure to get cake mix that has pudding in it. Regular cake mix will not work for this recipe.


Blend cake mix, 2 1/4 cups Cool Whip, and egg together in a mixing bowl. Mixture will be very sticky.


Scoop cookie mixture out into small balls. A cookie scoop like this one will work very well for this.


Place the powdered sugar into a shallow dish and then roll each ball into the powdered sugar.


Place the cookies onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper or silicone baking mats. Arrange cookies about 2 inches apart.


Bake cookies at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes, or until cookies are lightly browned on the bottom. Transfer cookies to wire cooling racks to cool.
