Lemon White Chocolate Chip Cake Mix Cookies

I seriously love making cookies with cake mixes. First of all it's easy. You don't have to measure out all of the ingredients. You just add the wet stuff and mix it all together. Secondly, they always turn out so soft and chewy and moist. Last of all, cooking time is very forgiving with cake mix cookies. If you leave them in for a couple of extra minutes they aren't going to burn. These cookies were an experiment that turned out very well. I was wanting to make cookies and lemon sounded good. I don't keep lemon cake mix on hand, so I thought I could mix in some lemon pudding mix with some yellow cake. Good plan, except that I didn't have any lemon pudding mix either. I thought, well normally I add vanilla and water into my cake mix cookie dough. I'll just replace those liquids with lemon juice. I added a little bit more lemon juice that I would normally add for liquid but I wanted to make sure I could taste the lemon and I could but it could have been a little stronger. I didn't want to add any more liquid because the batter was on the verge of getting to thin. I remembered I had some lemons in the fridge so I added some grated lemon peel. It was just the perfect amount of lemon flavor. I think the extra liquid made these cookies the perfect chewy texture.  You could easily do this with lemon cake mix too, I'm thinking you could probably leave out the lemon peel in that case. I'm betting the lemon cake and lemon juice would provide enough lemon flavor, but that's just a guess. Let me know if you try it out.

I'm sorry, but I've turned word verification on again. I hate trying to decipher the words just as much as anyone, but I'm getting way too much spam. I tried doing comment moderation as people suggested but the number or spam comments I had to sift through was ridiculous. I appreciate your comments and didn't want them to get lost among the spam. Hopefully, I can reduce the amount of spam and turn the word verification off soon.
