Pink Lemonade Cookies

Wednesday, April 10, 2013

My friend came over for dinner one night and brought some pink lemonade cookies that she had made from a package.  I really liked them and decided to look for a recipe online to make them from scratch.  I found a recipe that looked good and started experimenting with it.  I wanted the cookies to be a little tarter, so I switched the amount of sugar and the amount of the pink lemonade powder. (You can adjust the sugar and pink lemonade to your preference.)  I loved the way they turned out!  Here is the recipe the way I liked it best :)

The Ingredients:

1 c. butter, softened
1/2 c. sugar
1 c. powdered sweetened pink lemonade mix
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. lemon extract (or lemon juice. I used juice from a fresh lemon.)
3 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda

-Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and grease cookie sheet.

- In large mixing bowl, cream butter, sugar and lemonade mix until fluffy.

- Beat in egg, vanilla, and lemon extract.

-Add dry ingredients to the batter, beating until thoroughly combined.

 Dough will be crumbly.

-Roll dough into 1" balls and roll in sugar. Place them 2" apart on cookie sheet, and bake for 10-12 minutes (or until edges start to brown.)

Although I didn't try it, I think these cookies might be really good with a lemony glaze on top.
