A deep red, chewy cookie that has a delicate crackled crust dusted with a touch of powdered sugar.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Melt butter; set aside to cool. Place powdered sugar and cornstarch in shallow dish. Mix with a fork to blend.
  2. Place cake mix, cooled butter, eggs and lemon zest in large mixing bowl. Mix by hand until well blended and a dough forms.
  3. Form dough into 1-inch balls and roll in powdered sugar. Place on cool, ungreased baking sheets about 2 inches apart.
  4. Bake, 1 sheet at a time, in center of oven for 9 to 11 minutes or until set. Cool 1 minute. Transfer to wire rack to cool completely.
  5. Store in airtight container with wax paper or parchment separating layers.

For consistency, use a small scoop (1 to 1-1/4 inches in diameter) to form dough into balls.

For best results, bake only one sheet of cookies at a time. If two are baked at once, rotate sheets midway through baking.

These are fantastic! visually appealing, easy to make! I made them really really small and they are a really nice treat to make with the red velvet cake mix (which I absolutely love!)
