Lemon Coconut Cake Cookies

So these are something that I have wanted to find a recipe to fix for quite some time, they are a family favorite on Kevin’s side at all of the holiday gatherings!

Lemon Coconut Cake Cookies
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes
Yield: about 3 dozens
4 tsp grated lemon zest (or mix with lime zest)  ( I used 3 small lemons, you could also use 1 1/2 large lemons)
1/2 cup flaked sweetened coconut
1 8 ounce container whipped dairy topping
2 eggs
1 tsp lemon juice
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1 (18.25 oz) package lemon cake mix
Powdered sugar for coating


  1. Preheat oven for 350ºF
  2. In a mixer with a paddle attachment, mix dairy topping, eggs and lemon juice until fluffy. Add the powdered sugar, the cake mix, lemon zest and the coconut ; mix well.
  3. Drop by tablespoonfuls in a bowl of powdered sugar, roll them to coat all over. Place them 2 ” apart on a cookie sheet with parchment paper on it. (THIS IS IMPORTANT, THEY SPREAD AND WILL STICK WITHOUT FOLLOWING THIS STEP!)
  4. Bake for 10-12 minute until the edges gets golden brown. Cool them on a wire rack.

There are other variations of Cake Cookies that I will be trying out over the next few weeks, they are so light and fluffy that I cant wait to try some others!
