Pink Lemonade Cookies Recipe

I made some cookies for my church's Christmas Cookie Annual Sale.

We made several kinds.

So since I have been asked to share my recipes, I will. This one is for the Pink lemonade cookies.

Pink Lemonade Cookies

Prep Oven to 350 Degrees F

  • 1/2 C Butter
  • 1/2 C Granulated Sugar
  • 1/4 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/3 C Pink Lemonade Concentrate Thawed
  • 2 TBS Butter or Margarine Softened
  • 2 C Powdered Sugar
  • 2 tsps Pink Lemondate Concentrate Thawed
  • Water

For the Cookies -

Beat 1/2 cup butter in a mixing bowl with an electric mixer for 30 seconds. Add granulated sugar, baking powder, and baking soda; beat until combined. Beat in egg and 1/3 cup lemonade concentrate. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. Stir in any remaining flour with a wooden spoon.
Drop by rounded teaspoons 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 10 to 12 minutes or until edges are golden. Cool on cookie sheets for 1 minute; transfer cookies to wire racks and cool completely.   These cookies will be soft and lightly brown on edges.
You can make these with or without frosting. You can also make these into cookie sandwhiches.  Very delicate and pack a lot of flavor. :)

For the Frosting - 

Beat together 2 tablespoons butter, powdered sugar, and 2 teaspoons lemonade concentrate and enough water (3 to 4 teaspoons) to make of spreading consistency. If desired, add red food coloring to tint the frosting a delicate pink. Frost cookies. Makes 36.
