For a fun dessert for a picnic or summertime party, try these gems, made easy with a Betty Crocker® sugar cookie mix. Try the variation below and enjoy it your way.
pouch (1 lb.1.5 oz) Betty Crocker™ sugar cookie mix
cup butter, softened
cup Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
cup frozen (thawed) pink lemonade concentrate
Pink Lemonade Frosting
cup butter or margarine, softened
cups powdered sugar
to 4 tablespoons frozen (thawed) pink lemonade concentrate
Heat oven to 375°F. Line cookie sheet with cooking parchment paper.
In large bowl, mix all cookie ingredients with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Onto cookie sheet, drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls.
Bake 9 to 11 minutes or just until edges begin to brown. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 20 minutes.
In medium bowl, mix 1/4 cup butter, the powdered sugar and 3 tablespoons lemonade concentrate with electric mixer on low speed until smooth. Add remaining 1 tablespoon concentrate, 1 teaspoon at a time, if needed for desired consistency. Frost cookies.
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.
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.
