Turn Lemons into Lemonade Cookies

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.

Lemonade Cookies

1 cup margarine
1 cup sugar (granulated)
2 eggs
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 can (6 oz.) lemonade concentrate (thawed), divided use
Extra sugar and food coloring (for sprinkles)

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.

Lemon Cookies

¼ cup shortening
¼ cup butter
¾ cup sugar
1 egg
1 Tablespoon whole milk
2 teaspoons grated lemon peel
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 ¼ cups flour
¼ teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt

Blend 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.
