Make 4 dozen yummy Lemon Krispie Cookies, drizzled with lemon glaze on top! This easy to make recipe uses boxed lemon cake mix as a shortcut!
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Place dry cake mix, krispies, melted butter, beaten egg and grated lemon peel (zest) in a large mixing bowl. Stir together until completely blended.
Shape cookie dough into 48, 1" balls, by rolling pieces of dough between the palms of your hands. Place dough balls onto ungreased baking sheets, about 2" apart. TIP: The dough is VERY forgiving, so if you don't have enough cookies to make 4 dozen... simply pinch little pieces off the "chubby" ones (ha ha), and re-roll.
Bake cookies at 350°F. for 10-12 minutes. When done, cookies will be golden in color, set on top, and bottom of cookie will be golden brown. Remove from oven. Let sit for 1 minute before transferring cookies from baking sheet to wire rack to finish cooling. Let cookies cool completely before glazing tops.
Place powdered sugar in a small bowl. Squeeze lemon juice in, a few drops at a time. Stir after each addition of juice. Continue until glaze is still thickened, but "thin" enough to easily drizzle over cookies. Place wax paper, parchment paper or aluminum foil UNDER the wire rack (to help with cleanup)! Move completely cooled cookies tightly together on rack. Using a honey dipper OR fork, drizzle glaze over cookies. Make several passes over the cookies until glaze is gone, and all cookies have glaze drizzled on them. Let glaze firm up, before serving. Enjoy!
