Duration: 10 minutes

  • 2 parts flour
  • 1 part salt
  • water
  • white tempura paint
  • white glitter

  1. Mix all the flour and salt together
  2. Gradually add water until you reach the desired consistency.
  3. Sprinkle in the white tempura powder and glitter for color and effect.

Lemon Drop Cookies

One word: Delicious!  I made these cookies yesterday with my Mom and Mason for Christmas.  Not only were the super easy, but they taste amazing!  They are a light and cake-like cookie that goes down easy.  The best part is that you can use any variety of cake mix to make whatever kind of cookie you want.

Yields: about 5 Dozen

  1. 1 - 18oz box lemon cake mix (Duncan Hines)
  2. 1 - 8oz container of frozen Whipped Topping (thawed)
  3. 2 eggs, beaten
  4. 1 cup powdered sugar (set aside)
**Note: Cake mix can be of any flavor, depending on taste

  1. Mix cake mix, topping and beaten eggs together in a large bowl.
  2. Stir well until mixed.

     3.  Drop by teaspoon into powdered sugar and roll to coat into a ball.
     4.  Place dough balls 1 1/2 inches apart on a greased cookie sheet.
     5.  Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes until lightly browned.
