Homemade Pink Lemonade Cookies
Pink Lemonade Cookies are perfect for Valentine’s Day, Easter, Spring Parties, Baby Showers, or Gender Reveal Parties.
You could also use different flavors of lemonade or Kool-aid to make different colors/flavors for other time of the year.
I love how sweet, tangy, and delicious these cookies are, just like drinking a tall glass of ice cold pink lemonade.
When we decided to make these, I took my Homemade Sugar Cookie Recipe and added Pink Lemonade Powder to it.
There are just 6 simple ingredients in this recipe, it’s so easy to make!
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup softened butter (2 sticks)
- ½ tsp vanilla extract
- 1 large egg
- 2¼ cups Flour (I use self rising)
- 1/4 cup Pink Lemonade Mix
To begin, mix 1 cup sugar, 1/4 cup Pink Lemonade Mix, 1 cup softened butter (2 sticks), ½ tsp vanilla extract, and 1 large egg until smooth. I then slowly add 2¼ cups flour into the mixing bowl. I will let the older boys use the mixer on low, with me standing right there to help them. Once it’s nice and smooth, they’re ready to be scooped out.
You can use a teaspoon to scoop them out, but I prefer to use a small melon ball scooper or ice cream scooper to get them even (and it’s easier for the boys). We scoop them out, and place about 2 inches apart on the baking sheet – you don’t want them running together. As I mentioned earlier, if you want them flatter for decorating, use a small plate or glass to flatten them. If you are not decorating or want a fluffier cookie, just leave the balls round and they’ll bake just fine.
Bake them at 375 (I use 350 for my dark, non-stick pan) for about 10-12 minutes until the edges are turning a golden brown. The recipe makes between 36-48 cookies, depending on how big your scoops of dough are.
