It Ain't Food Network, But They Eat It....Tuesday!

Yesterday Stephen called to tell me that is Pee Paw was coming down and bringing us some cucumbers to make pickles. Stephen's mom had surgery last week so they didn't want to mess with pickles this year. I have one jar left and we are eating them sparingly, so I told them I would take them. While looking for my Chunk pickle recipe from Stephen's Mee Maw, I realized how UNORGANIZED my recipes were. I knew it before, but trying to find a specific recipe yesterday did nothing but clarify that thought. I have 2 recipe boxes, several notebooks and then there is the recipes I print off the computer and don't file because I will forget about it before I get a chance to make whatever it is. So yesterday I started trying to get some of them organized. I didn't hardly make a dent, but I did find my pickle recipe and i found this one that I haven't made in a few years. And it is SO good. I don't remember how many cookies it makes, but I remember it not being a lot like most cookie recipes. Which is good if you are just making it for your family. Not too many. If you are taking it to a get together you might want to double the recipe. These cookies melt in your mouth and they are different than other recipes.

Lemon Cookies

1 package lemon cake mix
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs
2 Tbsp. lemon juice
1 can lemon frosting

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix first 4 ingredients together. Drop onto cookie sheet in small spoonfuls. Bake for 8 minutes. Let cool completely. Spread icing generously. Let cookies sit out for a few hours or overnight for icing to set.

If you make this let me know what you think!
