Easy Essential Oil Cake Cookies

Easy Essential Oil Cake Cookies

      1. 1 Box Lemon Cake Mix

1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted


8 drops therapeutic grade pure lemon essential oil

Lavender Candy Melts

    1-2 drops therapeutic grade pure lavender essential oil
  1. Preheat oven to 350*.
  2. Have an un-greased cookie sheet ready to go.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine the cake mix, melted butter, egg and lemon oil (or extract) and mix until combined.
  4. Using your hands, roll out golf ball sized rounds of the cake batter mixture.
  5. Place the balls 1″ apart on the cookie sheet.
  6. Bake for 8-10 minutes. (Try not to over bake so they are nice and soft)IMG_6505
  7. While baking, place the candy melts in a microwave safe bowl (or a squeeze bottle) and microwave for increments of 30 seconds stirring in between until melted and smooth. You don’t want to cook more than 30 seconds at a time or the candy will scorch.
  8. Add one drop of lavender essential oil and test for taste. It may seem a bit strong, but the lemon in the cookies helps to balance this.
  9. Set the lavender infused candy melts aside to cool slightly.
  10. Remove the cookies from the oven and allow to continue baking on the cookie sheet for another 5-6 minutes.
  11. Drizzle the lavender over each cookieIMG_6490IMG_6488
  12. Allow to cool completely until the lavender center has hardened (I suggest placing the cookie sheet in the fridge for at least an hour once it reaches room temperature).
  13. Store cookies in an airtight container or bag for up to 3 days or freeze in an airtight container or bag for up to three months.


Another yummy cake cookie I love to make is chocolate peppermint.  It would be the same recipe and directions as the lemon-lavender only you use chocolate cake mix, green candy melts and peppermint EO.
