I made these as part of our Christmas baking day with my nieces. Very good! They couldn't be any easier to make. It is a chewy cookie. The coconut is subtle. I will be making these again!

The cookies are excellent. The only problem I had was that the batter was too thick and tacky. Can I do something to make it a little less tacky.

Would adding chopped pecans or almonds work instead of coconut or are they too heavy? Thanks.

do you add the water and oil thats on the cake mix?

No. Just as directions state.

This recipe is fantastic, and I also do not care for synthetic whipped cream, however it works well here (Hint: place dough in refridge for about 30 min before shaping into balls - less sticky and easier to roll in sugar. My picky quality control expert who does not like coconut (AKA husband), has been stealing so many of them, that I might have to make another batch before my luncheon on Tues. Thanks, Mr. Food

I am so happy to see the comments from the test kitchen. It's very helpful.

I absolutely do not like coconut. Can you omit it and just make them lemom cookies?

Sure you can leave the coconut out. Try whatever works best for you! Enjoy!

Can you use a cake mix with pudding in it?

Thank you for your question. Yes, you can try using a cake mix with pudding in it. This will make the cookies moister.

It sounds yummy to me! gonna try it.

Have made the whippersnapper apple cinnamon cookies with kook whip so am anxious to try these lemon ones thanks Barbara Datz

The synthetic cream is oil, so if you use a half cup of oil you will get the same results.

Thank you for your comments. Since the Mr. Food Test Kitchen has not tried this recipe substituting oil for whipped topping, we can not guarantee the recipe will work this way. Thank you!

does any one know if you can use heavy cream instead of the synthetic whipped topping?

There are some ingredients in recipes that can be substituted. However, heavy cream will not give you the same result for this one. We have only tried this recipe as you see it above in the Test Kitchen, so we can not guarantee the results if you substitute the whipped topping. For this recipe, you could try a different flavor cake mix. Thank you for your question!

You could probably use an equal amount of whipped cream...
