Lemonhead Cookies {Repost}

We used to have a grocery store here in Midway called (get this) The Store.  I won't go into all the details of the confusion the name caused, but they did sell these amazing cookies.  They're Ruby Snap cookies.

My husband got several of the cookies for his birthday one year, and fell in love with the lemon one.  He came home and  told me all about the cookie.  He was convinced I could try to recreate it with my lemon cake cookie recipe.  The secret was to add crushed Lemonheads to the recipe.

I followed my husband's instructions, and made the cookies.  I also added a lemon glaze on top (you can never have too much lemon).  I was quite impressed with the results!  Not the original Ruby Snap cookie, but a new cookie in and of itself.  All thanks to my husband!

The crushed Lemonheads add the perfect zing and chewy, crunchiness.  My only complaint about them is how terrible they stick to the pan.  I've tried spraying the pan between every batch, but it doesn't seem to help.  I don't own one, but maybe a Silpat would work.  I have found that if I get the cookies off of the baking sheet as quickly as I can,  then the Lemonheads don't have time to harden, and they come off easier.

The recipe is really simple.  I got the basic cake cookie recipe from my cousin before I was even married.  You can use any flavor of cake mix, but for this recipe we're using lemon (obviously).

I put in 1/2  cup of crushed Lemonheads, but you can adjust it to your liking.  I'm pretty sure you wouldn't want less, but the more the merrier!
