Lemonade Cookies

After the traumatic events of the cookie fail I was a bit hesitant to give the cookie deal another go, but I knew I had to try.  I let Richard flip through the pages and pick out a recipe because I thought he might be good luck.  He picked Lemonade Cookies, and they turned out yummy! They had a nice little kick of citrus flavour, not too sweet, and a perfect summertime cookie.

I kept a closer eye on progress this time!

 

I double glazed mine for an extra lemon twang, and highly recommend doing this

Lemonade Cookies

1 cup butter, softened

1 cup granulated sugar

2 eggs

170ml frozen concentrated lemonade, thawed

3 cups all purpose flour

1 tsp baking soda

½ tsp salt

 

1. Preheat oven to 375º

2. Cream butter and sugar together.  Beat eggs in 1 at a time.  Add 85ml of concentrated lemonade (set the rest of the lemonade aside for later)

3. Stir flour, baking soda and salt together.  Add dry mixture in with the other ingredients and mix well.

4. Drop spoonfuls onto a greased cookie sheet and bake @ 375° for 10-12 minutes or until light brown.

5. Brush tops of cookies with the concentrated lemonade (do twice for extra flavour), let them sit for a few minutes so the lemonade sets as a glaze.  Enjoy.

Makes about 4 dozen
