Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I have a question, am I reading this correctly..use a teaspoon of dough for each cookie? Aren't they small?

what size container of cool whip did anyone buy to make these? thanks!

Hi there! You should be able to easily find an 8 oz container at your local grocery store, but make sure to use 2 cups, as specified! Enjoy. :)

I agree with comments about not being able to roll in to balls. good suggestion to chill dough first. Also need to bake longer than suggested, may 10 - 14 minutes.

can the frozen whipped topping be substituted with anything else? we can't get it in Australia and I'd like to try alot of your recipes which use the frozen topping. Thanks

Hi there! We were able to find Dream Whip Topping Mix. The Mr. Food Test Kitchen has not used this product before, so we cannot guarantee the results or consistency. It looks like this is available at USA Foods store or at http://www.usafoods.com.au/Dream-Whip-Topping-Mix-5-2oz Let us know how using Dream Whip Topping Mix turns out for you, we would love your feedback. Thanks and enjoy!

thanks for finding this. Unfortunately a pack costs $10.50 plus potage so isn't really cost effective. I was hoping I could substitute real whipped cream. If anyone has any ideas I'd be grateful for them

I plan to make these. Note that some people can not put them in to balls, would it not be a good idea to place in refrigerator for a 1/2 or or so to firm up mixture? Then make the balls and roll into powder sugar.

Just noticed rettab made the same suggestion )

Hi there! If you are having trouble shaping the batter into 1 teaspoon balls, you can certainly refrigerate the dough for up to 1/2 hour. We would love to hear back about how they turned out. Enjoy!

Make these often--they are a much requested cookie--especially for bridal or baby showers. Have tried w/strawberry, pineapple, orange lemon. Had a hard time rolling dough into ball so tried chilling for about 30 min. Then I dropped dough into bowl w/confectioner's sugar. Roll the dough around w/spoon it will form a ball. Put any remaining dough back in the fridge till you are ready for the rest. Really much easier!

Thanks for the suggestion! These would make a good, bite-sized confection for a pot luck or summer family picnic with different flavors of cake mixes used. I will definitely chill the dough before forming the balls.

sooo tasty! will try orange cake mix next.....

good grief ... what a mess! dough cannot be shaped then rolled! tasted good but way to messy for me. should i have dipped my hands in water before shaping? tasty rates a 4 however.

Made these with fat free whipped topping for a Weight Watchers treat. Wound up with 63 cookies, 1 point each. However, had a few problems. No way could I "shape into a ball". I used a teaspoon and made a mounded drop, couldn't roll in the sugar so used a shaker to heavily coat with the powdered sugar. Used parchment paper instead of spray so the bottoms wouldn't burn. Results FANTASTIC!

I use parchment paper for all my cookies, works like magic! I use small "ice cream scooper" Sam's has them. also I chill them before I dip. my granddaughter likes to use icing piping bag with large star tip. wal-mart has Wilton brand hope this works to put fun back into cookie making day....

These cookies are excellent, they are a light cookie, and very delicate.

Can lemon zest from one lemon be added for more of a lemony flavor

Yes, lemon zest can be added for more flavor. Enjoy!

Try it and find out, then tell the rest of us. We like success stories.

A quick easy Recipe that everyone loves. I made with Lemon Cake mix with Key Lime cake mixes. Lemon was the favorite. My Dad raves about these cookies so much we gave some to a friend up visiting and they ate them all in one day. Naturally I whipped up a batch for their drive home. Every time I bite into one I hear MR Food saying "OOOH it's so Good!"
