    I’m flattered to be visiting Skip To My Lou Today!  I’ve got the perfect spring treat for you.  First of all, you must know I LOVE cookies. They are by far my favorite treat to make, and eat, ever ever ever!  These Browned Butter Carrot Cake Cookies are a new favorite! But right now, I’m totally loving all things lemon.  So I decided to throw a little fresh lemon flavor into cookies for you.  These Lemon Poppy Seed Sandwich Cookies just scream Spring, don’t you think?

    These sandwich cookies start with a cake mix so they are super easy to make!  I love keeping things simple in the kitchen and have no problem taking short cuts every once and a while.  I used a yellow cake mix for the cookies and just doctored it a little with fresh lemon juice, lemon zest and poppy seeds.  You could also just buy a lemon cake mix, but if you have a yellow cake mix on hand, use it! To the cake mix you add a little oil and two eggs, that’s it.

    The frosting is a simple cream cheese frosting with just a hint of lemon.

    I love the punch of lemon citrus these sandwich cookies have! But I think I love how easy they are to make even more!  I hope you enjoy!

      This looks really good, and even though I haven't thought of it before poppy seed and lemon seem like a great combo!

      I visited many sites except the audio feature for audio songs current at this site is actually wonderful.
