Back in July of 2010 I first talked about the Lucious Lemon Cookies I made for a get together, still love those cookies but with my healthier eating I wanted the flavor without all the fat so I took the same great boxed cake mix (ANY cake mix will do, promise) and added egg substitute equal to 2 eggs and a half a cup of unsweetened applesauce, mix to combine then bake on 350 for 8-10 minutes. I swear that they are softer and chewier than the previous times I have made cake mix cookies. You could eat them just like that, they are that good, or if you wanted to do what I did take a can of the whipped cream frosting and lightly frost each cupcake. Perfect springtime afternoon snack washed down with a glass of milk. These would be super easy to make for a St. Patrick's Day party by throwing some shamrock or green sprinkles in the batter or dying the frosting green.
