Make the Most of This Recipe With Tips From The Betty Crocker® Kitchens
If “pinker” color is desired, stir a drop or two of red food color into the dough or frosting…or both!
Sprinkle frosted cookies with coarse white or pink sugar.
Recipe Variation Pink Lemonade Sandwich Cookies: Make a double batch of cookies and frosting. Thickly frost half of the cookies and then top each with a second cookie. With the frosting in the middle, sandwich cookies are easier to transport.
