Meal Monday: Lemon Crinkle Puffs

I don't know if my most recent sweets craving is from pregnancy or spring's arrival, but I was foaming at the mouth for something Lemon. Usually I go for any kind of hearty chocolatey, brownie sunday kind of treat, but this time I wanted something light and clean and tart. These are the easiest things to make, (isn't everything I share here that involves baking?!) and they take just 20 minutes from box to plate.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 
In a large mixing bowl, combine cake mix, egg, and the whole container of thawed cool whip. If you don't have an electric mixer, you're in for a real workout. This is the thickest, stickiest, messiest batter known to woman. Once the batter is smooth, scoop a tablespoon of dough, and scrape it off into your bowl of powdered sugar. It is easiest to cover it in the sugar all over before you touch it fully with your fingers. Once it's covered it won't stick to you, and you can form little balls out of them. Place on a baking sheet and it's ready to go! Bake for 10 minutes and remove from oven. Let them cool for a few minutes and they'll puff up. Sprinkle a little more powdered sugar over the tops and eat!

Happy Spring!
