Pink Lemonade Cookies

From the Recipe Shoebox. 

The ingredients:

1 c. butter, softened

1/2 c. sugar

1 c. powdered sweetened pink lemonade mix


1 tsp. vanilla

1/2 tsp. lemon extract (or lemon juice. I used juice from a fresh lemon.)

3 cups flour

1 tsp. baking soda


-Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and grease cookie sheet.

- In large mixing bowl, cream butter, sugar and lemonade mix until fluffy.

- Beat in egg, vanilla, and lemon extract.

-Add dry ingredients to the batter, beating until thoroughly combined.  Note:  Dough will be quite crumbly.  

-Roll dough into 1" balls and roll in sugar. Place them 2" apart on cookie sheet, and bake for 10-12 minutes (or until edges start to brown.)

Although I didn't try it, I think these cookies might be really good with a lemony glaze on top.
