Oh, I love lemon, lemon cookies
1 box lemon cake mix
2 c. whip topping -thawed
1 egg

mix cake mix, whip topping, and egg. It is a thick and sticky batter. Wash you hands and remove rings, you're about it get into this mess. We found that if you put powdered sugar on your fingers before the next step, it helps. Roll batter into balls gently with your fingertips. Roll in powdered sugar.
Bake 12ish minutes at 350 degrees.

I'm guessing you could use all kinds of cake mix. Yum, I'm thinking about all the possibilities.
