Lemon Whippersnappers


One of my favorite cookies growing up was the Lemon Whippersnapper. It was a simple and delicious recipe that only had a few ingredients including cool whip and boxed cake mix. I loved them!

So imagine my delight last December when I discovered a “from scratch” recipe for Lemon Whippersnappers in America’s Test Kitchen® Magazine! I didn’t even know these cookies could be made without the cake mix or the cool whip. However, America’s Test Kitchen calls them Lemon Snowflakes not Whippersnappers.

I, of course, have added my own adaptation and doubled the recipe. They were such a big hit that I couldn’t just make 2 dozen; I had to make 4 dozen! These cookies are GREAT freezer cookies and keep very well…if they last that long.  Honestly, these cookies are addicting!

Lemon is so…sunny! And these cookies are covered in powdered sugar, too. Check out “Powder Your Face with Sunshine” sung by Dean Martin.
