These cookies are another recipe from the shoebox of recipes my Grandma left me, and I’m honestly surprised they weren’t the first recipe I made. Anything with lemon in it gets automatically earmarked, but I guess these got overlooked by other, flashier recipes.

Now that I’ve had them though, it wont be long before I make them again. Using lemon cake mix as the base of the recipe means that these come together incredibly quickly and easily, and the addition of the Rice Krispies cereal elevates them above an average lemon cookie.

What Makes Lemon Crisp Cookies Special

  • Box cake mix means they’re SUPER easy to make
  • Crisp and delicious lemon flavor
  • Soft and chewy on the inside, crisp on the edges

Now, my OG Box Mix Lemon Cookie recipe will always and forever be my favorite lemon cookie, but these guys have definitely made their way into my heart. Why aren’t you already making them???

To Make Lemon Crisp Cookies

Preheat the oven to 350.

Shape dough into 1 inch balls, and place on a parchment lined cookie sheet 1-2 inches apart. Bake for 10-12 minutes.
Remove the cookies to a cooling rack as soon as they come out of the oven.


  • Cookies will keep in a tupperware container for 2-3 days, but are best the day they're made.
