Continuing on my lemon kick I came across a lemon coconut cake mix cookies recipe that used cake mix as the base.

I find so many great recipes on pinterest, but when they look too easy I worry they might be a big fat failure.

It has happened a few times recently where I mixed up a recipe and it was a disaster. I really need to start blogging my pinterest fails, if I only had more time.

Luckily this lemon coconut cake mix cookies recipe was a success. Of course, I altered the recipe to have more lemon flavor and I thought coconut would be a perfect complement.

These cookies only require a couple of ingredients (I ended up not using the powdered sugar that is pictured here).

After mixing up the cookie batter I took a heaping teaspoon of the batter and formed it into a ball. Then I rolled the dough balls in coconut.

I placed the cookies on a foil lined sheet and baked at 375 for about 10 minutes.

Unfortunately, I placed the cookies too close together on the cookie sheet before baking and they kinda merged together.

I let the cookies cool for a while and I was able to separate most of them.

For fun I used a cookie cutter on the rest to create star cookies.
