The tart taste of lemons makes these cookies a refreshing treat
These cookies pack a real punch with a twist of lemon in the first recipe and a dash of lemonade in the second. What a fun way to have a refreshing treat on a hot afternoon.
1 cup margarine
Blend margarine and sugar. Beat eggs in a separate bowl and add. Use electric mixer to beat until fluffy. Combine flour and baking soda. Add ½ cup of lemonade, along with the flour and baking soda to the first mix. Grease cookie sheets and preheat oven to 400-degrees F. Use a teaspoon to drop cookie dough onto sheets. Bake until browning at edges (8-10 minutes). Remove and lightly sprinkle remaining lemonade across tops. Mix sugar with food coloring (single color or several) and cover tops.
¼ cup shortening
butter, sugar, and egg. Add milk, lemon peel, and juice. In a separate
bowl, mix flour, baking powder, and salt. Combine with first mix and
let chill for an hour. Roll out dough to 1/16-inch (very thin) and use
cookie cutters for shapes. Place on greased cookie sheets and place
in pre-heated 425-degree F. oven. Bake about 7 minutes or until browned
lightly. Makes about 60 cookies.
