I know, it’s not officially summer yet…. but I am so ready for summer! It’s been a chilly spring here in Ohio, after a downright freezing winter, and I’m ready for some sunshine and warmer weather! This lemon cake mix cookies recipe reminds me of warmer days and fun in the sun! The cookies are super easy to make, with just a few ingredients, and perfect for spring or summer. The light lemony flavor make them perfect for a pool party, or a backyard barbecue.
