User Rating 5 Star Rating (2 Reviews)

By

This recipe makes about 3 to 4 dozen delicious lemonade cookies. Lemonade concentrate gives these cookies a burst of lemon flavor.

Cook Time: 8 minutes

Total Time: 8 minutes

Yield: Makes 3 to 4 Dozen

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour, sift before measuring
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 small can (6 ounces) frozen lemonade concentrate, thawed, divided
  • 2 teaspoons finely grated lemon peel, optional
  • granulated sugar for sprinkling

Preparation:

In a mixing bowl with electric mixer, cream butter and sugar until light. Add eggs and beat until light and fluffy.

Sift together the sifted flour and baking soda; add to the creamed mixture, alternating with 1/2 cup of the lemonade concentrate.

Stir in grated lemon peel, if using.

Drop dough by teaspoonfuls, 2 inches apart, onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake cookies at 400° for 8 minutes or until lightly browned around edges. Brush hot cookies with remaining lemonade concentrate then sprinkle with a little granulated sugar.

Remove the cookies to racks to cool completely.

Makes about 3 to 4 dozen.

Awesome, Member kimlefler

I didn't even get the first batch finished before my family ate most of them! They are moist with a cake like texture, just enough lemon; I didn't put the zest in them. I baked them for nine minutes instead of eight. Fast, easy and a real crowd pleaser!
