  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Pour cake mix into a large bowl. Stir in eggs, oil, and lemon extract until well blended. Drop teaspoonfuls of dough into a bowl of confectioners' sugar. Roll them around until they're lightly covered. Once sugared, put them on an ungreased cookie sheet.
  3. Bake for 6 to 9 minutes in the preheated oven. The bottoms will be light brown, and the insides chewy.

My husband and I loved these. I used 1 Tbsp lemon juice in place of the lemon extract, much better flavor. If you prefer a crisper cookie push the ball down a little before baking and bake them ...

Very easy and versatile, too. My husband did a cookie exchange at his workplace (guess who made the cookies). I made lemon, strawberry (used strawberry extract instead of lemon) and carrot cake ...
