  • Mix frosting and lemon juice until blended; spread onto cookies.

How to Make Uniformly Sized Cookies

    The cookies were pretty good. They were very soft and moist. I made them with Miracle Whip Light, but next time I will try with regular Miracle Whip to see if that changes the taste. The frosting was horrible! Next time, I will use the ready-to-eat lemon flavor frosting you can buy at the store.

    i didnt put frosting on them; instead i put the juice of 1 medium lemon in the batter, and used lemon cake mix. they turned out good, but needed to be a tad sweeter, so i put powdered sugar over the top. theyre like mini-cakes in consistency.
