I've had the idea for these little cookies in my head for a while so I figured it was time to put them in my mouth. These turned out so good. A little bit of pink lemonade concentrate transforms these basic sugar cookies into a tart and sweet treat! I loved the sparkling sugar crystals on top of the light pink frosting, too!
Pink Lemonade Sugar Cookies
1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
3 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup frozen pink lemonade concentrate, thawed
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Prepare 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or cooking spray.
In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar.
Add eggs, one at a time.
Add 1 cup of the flour and the baking soda to the butter mixture. Mix to combine.
Add half of the lemonade concentrate.
Gradually beat in another cup of flour, the remaining lemonade concentrate, then the last of the flour.
Drop mixture by cookie scoopfuls onto the prepared cookie sheet. (I used my 1 1/2 inch scoop)
Bake 8 to 10 minutes until lightly brown.
Cool. Frost with Pink Lemonade Frosting
