Try Making Lemon Cookies with Essential Oil

Since starting to use pure organic essential oils, the lemon oil has been one of our favorites here at Living Locurto. Not only can you use lemon oil in place of lemon extract, but it’s also very healthy.

Lemon essential oil is cold-pressed from the rinds of lemons. It’s great to add to water and now a favorite for me is mixing several drops with frosting!

Honestly, this lemon frosting is what makes these Lemon Cookies so amazing! You can always use lemon extract in this recipe, but if you use pure high-grade essential oils, we recommend you try it!

Lemon Vitality oil has a bright taste you’ll want to keep on hand for almost anything you whip up. Instead of zesting or juicing, use Lemon Vitality for a convenient way to use this great flavor. Start small with a single drop of oil.

Lemon consists of 68 percent dlimonene, a powerful antioxidant. It is delightfully refreshing, especially in cookies! We hope you enjoy this wonderful recipe.

NOTE: If you are using essential oils in recipes, please make sure it’s high-grade pure organic oils that are approved for digesting such as the brand shown in the photo above. Otherwise, use lemon extract.

LEMON COOKIES

  • 1 box lemon cake mix
  • 1/3 cup oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 large lemon
  • 1/2 tsp lemon extract (or 4-6 drops dietary lemon essential oil)
  • 1/4 cup lemon drops, crushed
  • 1 cup confectioner's (powdered) sugar
  • parchment paper

LEMON FROSTING

  • 8 oz cream cheese (room temp.)
  • 1 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 large lemon
  • 1/4 tsp lemon extract (or 3 drops dietary lemon essential oil)
  • 1/4 cup Yellow candy sprinkles (optional)

LEMON COOKIES

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix cake mix, oil, eggs, lemon juice from the lemon, extract or oil, and crushed lemon drops on medium speed until everything is all smooth and incorporated.
  3. With the dough, make balls a little smaller than a golf ball, and roll them in the powdered sugar. Place each dough ball on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
  4. Bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes. You want the cookies to just start to turn golden but not brown.
  5. Remove from the oven and let them cool on a wire rack.

LEMON FROSTING

  1. Whip the cream cheese until smooth, then add the powdered sugar and mix it all together.
  2. Add the vanilla, lemon juice from one lemon and extract or essential oil.
  3. Give it a taste and if you want it sweeter add more powdered sugar, if you want it a little more tart add more lemon juice.
  4. Wait for the cookies to completely cool then pipe on the icing.
  5. The easiest way to pipe it on is to put the icing in a Ziploc bag and snip a corner. Swirl it on top of each lemon cookie.
  6. Add yellow sprinkles or sprinkle a little of the crushed lemon drops on top!

This is a very sticky dough, but after you drop it in the powdered sugar you will be able to roll it into a ball shape.

After testing one cookie ball in the sugar and you think the dough is too runny, try adding a few more pinches of flower to stiffen up the dough.

Cake Mix Cadbury Mini Egg Cookies Recipe

When I’m cruising through the grocery store and I see Cadbury Mini Eggs for the first time on the shelves, it’s like a record scratch. When I saw them, I thought, WE MUST make Cake Mix Cadbury Mini Egg Cookies!

And then I think I texted April and she agreed and then we waxed philosophical about the deliciousness of Cadbury Mini Eggs for a good long while.

And as it turns out, April was so excited about Cadbury Mini Egg Cookies, that she whipped up a second variety for your chocolatey cookie eating pleasure. COMING SOON!

As impossible as it may seem to improve upon the crispy shelled magic of a Cadbury Mini Egg, I found that adding them to a cake mix cookie was a buttery, delicious way of prolonging my enjoyment of this seasonal treat. Because, if motivated (or left unsupervised,) I can power through an entire bag of Cadbury Mini Eggs in under a day, but would consider wolfing down a whole batch of cookies pretty challenging.

Challenging, not impossible.cake mix cadbury mini egg cookies

Now that I’ve sampled these Cadbury Mini Egg Cookies for myself, you can bet your pretty little Easter bonnet that I’ll be stocking up on Cadbury Mini Eggs so I can bake these on repeat through our Easter festivities.

After that, I’ll likely be rationing my remaining chocolate eggs through June.

 

Cake Mix Cadbury Mini Egg Cookies Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 box butter cake mix
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 5 Tbsp melted butter
  • 1 1/2 cups Cadbury Mini Eggs, chopped

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Mix together all ingredients and spread into a greased 9×13 pan.
  3. Bake for 20 minutes.

We opted for squares, but you could use a cookie cutter for egg or flower shaped cookies.

You could add a cream cheese or chocolate frosting (or drizzle) to these for an extra festive kick.

But really, any way you serve these, they will be a HUGE HIT with your cookie loving crowd.
