  • Yield: 8 cookies


With the absolute perfect amount of lemon flavor, this Easy Copycat Crumbl Lemon Cookie recipe is a lemon lovers dream!



  • 1 (15.25-oz.) box lemon cake mix
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 2 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice plus 1 Tbsp. fresh lemon zest (from 1 to 2 fresh lemons)
  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar


Lemon Icing

  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 3 to 4 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice (from 1 lemon)
  • 1 to 2 Tbsp. heavy whipping cream
  • ​Lemon slices (optional)


  1. Prepare the cookies: Beat cake mix, butter, and eggs in a large bowl with a hand mixer or in a stand mixer. Beat in 1 Tbsp. lemon juice and zest just until combined. Cover dough with plastic wrap.
  2. Place dough in refrigerator to chill until firm, about 20 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet or cookie sheet with a silpat baking mat or parchment paper; set aside.
  3. Portion chilled dough into 8 (1/4-cup) balls using a large ice cream or cookie scoop. Roll each ball in powdered sugar.
  4. Space 4 dough balls out evenly on prepared baking sheet, and gently press down on tops of each dough ball with the palm of your hand to create thick disks. (Cookies will spread into giant cookies, like the classic Crumbl cookies size.)
  5. Bake in preheated oven until edges are set, centers are no longer doughy, and cookie has a crackled appearance, 12 to 14 minutes bake time.
  6. Let cool on pan until set, 5 to 10 minutes. Carefully transfer to a wire rack to let cool completely. Repeat process with remaining cookie dough (discard any unused sugar.)
  7. While cookies cool on cooling rack, prepare the Lemon Icing: Place powdered sugar in a small mixing bowl; add 3 Tbsp. lemon juice and 1 Tbsp. cream. Stir until smooth, adding more lemon juice and cream, as needed, to reach desired consistency. Spoon a heaping spoonful of Icing onto each cooled cookie and spread evenly. Garnish each of the baked cookies with a lemon slice, as desired. Store cookies in an airtight container.
