fudge-striped cookies, cut in half
Fine sparkling sugar (not coarse)
  1. Heat oven to 350°F. Place paper baking cup in each 24 regular-size muffin cups, grease bottoms and sides of muffin cups with shortening and lightly flour, or spray with baking spray with flour.
  2. In medium bowl, mix flour, baking powder and salt; set aside.
  3. In large bowl, beat shortening with electric mixer on medium speed 30 seconds. Gradually add granulated sugar, about 1/3 cup at a time, beating after each addition. Beat 2 minutes longer. Add egg whites, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. On low speed, alternately add flour mixture, about one-third at a time, with milk and 1/2 cup lemonade concentrate, beating just until blended.
  4. Divide batter evenly among muffin cups, filling each with about 3 tablespoons batter or until about two-thirds full.
  5. Bake 18 to 20 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 5 minutes. Remove cupcakes from pans; place on cooling racks. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
  6. In large bowl, mix powdered sugar and butter with spoon or electric mixer on low speed. Stir in 6 tablespoons lemonade concentrate. Gradually beat in just enough remaining lemonade concentrate, 1 teaspoon at a time, to make frosting smooth and spreadable. Spoon 1/2 cup frosting into small plastic bag; set aside. Frost cupcakes with remaining frosting.
  7. Cut 1/8-inch hole in 1 bottom corner of plastic bag. Pipe squiggly lines on chocolate sides of cookie halves. Sprinkle with decorating sugar. Press 2 cookie halves into each cupcake to look like wings.
