easy double lemon burst sandwich cookies


during the summer (and really any time), lemon flavored desserts and foods are some of my favorites. i love lemon cake, lemon sorbet and mostly lemon curd. i found the initial part of this recipe from tidy mom, and i can't believe how easy it is...

1 box lemon cake mix
1 tub of cool whip
1 egg

mix ingredients. dough will be very sticky. in fact, my mixer made horrible sounds and started smoking it was so sticky. i finished it with a wooden spoon. scoop dough and drop in to a bowl of powdered sugar. don't try to  touch the dough until it's coated with sugar, then roll in to a ball and drop on to an un-greased, parchment lined cookie sheet. bake 10 - 12 minutes at 350 degrees, or until cookies are just slightly browned. cool for approximately 10 minutes on the sheet and then remove to cooling rack.


after making just the cookies once, i decided that while the texture was excellent, they needed a bit more flavor. so i modified the recipe. i bought trader joe's delicious lemon curd, spread a little on one cool cookie, and sandwiched them together. ah, perfect! i could eat these forever.
