Lemon Chick Cookies

Yum
This weather in the Midwest is killing me!
Yes, I am being over dramatic but I can't take it anymore!
So how about something fun and whimsical?


These cute little lemon chick cookies just put a smile on your face!

Leave them as plain lemon cookies or jazz them up for Easter, either way they are a wonderful soft lemon cookie.



Dusted with powdered sugar or....



turned into little chicks!

Ingredients to make 2 dozen:
1 pkg of lemon cake mix
2 eggs
1 tsp lemon extract
1/3 cup vegetable oil
powdered sugar
edible eyes (from the craft store)
white tube frosting
orange tube frosting
yellow tube frosting
Directions:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  In a large bowl, mix together lemon cake mix, eggs, lemon extract and vegetable oil until well blended.  Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet.  Bake for 6-7 minutes at 375 degrees or until edges turn light brown.  Remove to a wire rack to cool.
To decorate:
Choice 1 - use a sifter to dust cookies with powdered sugar
Choice 2 - decorate with prepared frosting.  
                    use white frosting to stick down edible eyes
                    use orange frosting to create a beak and yellow frosting to create wings and chicken feet
Too cute!
Which way are you thinking of making these cookies?
Maybe a little bit of both kinds.  Some for the adults and some for the kids.  But, I am thinking even the adults will like the chick version!
