Soft Lemonade Cookies
Total TimePrep: 10 min. Bake: 10 min./batch + cooling
I had this recipe in the middle to late 60's. Made them frequently for my daughter back then. So good.
Love these cookies. I've seen a couple of reviews saying there's not a lot of lemon flavor. But there have also been reviews saying they were great and lemon-y. I just added some lemon juice in my cookie dough for fun, and my cookies were very lemon-y. To be honest though, it could have turned out great w/o the lemon juice but I don't know. If you are worried about lemon flavor though, I would recommend some lemon juice. These are the best cookies. I didn'y have enough sugar so I used a little bit of brown sugar and it worked. At the end, I sprinkled powdered sugar on the cookies. My end result, was delicious! Fantastic! Awesome! Definitely recommend. :)
These cookies are so good they would be taxed in California and New York. :-) Easy to make and light and fluffy when you eat them.
These cookies were really easy to make and tasted great. The lemony flavor was easy for me to identify. And the cookie itself was moist and soft. As for the person (Jenna092) who commented on these cookies NOT being lemonade cookies, really? The recipe is made with lemonade hence the name "Lemonade Cookies".
These cookies were very good, but they are not lemonade cookies. Only when I told someone that there was lemonade did they get a hint of the lemon flavoring. They are great sugar cookies, but would need lemon extract in order to be called lemonade cookies.
Very nice cookies. Not really a whole lot of flavor to them, though.
Been making these delicious, lemony delights since the recipe first appeared in TOH in April 1996! The only thing I change in the recipe is reduce the sugar in the cookie to 3/4 cup. This brings out the zing of the lemon flavor even more! Yum!
These cookies are amazing! They are so tender, they seem to melt in your mouth. My son and I love anything lemon, so are crazy about these; my husband and daughter don't really care much for lemon, but even they like these cookies quite a lot. Easy to make, delicious to eat!
I tried these out this morning. The only change I made was to use Limeade concentrate as I was out of lemonade. Oh, I added some lemon chips that I was looking for a use for as well. They spread out a bit more than pictured, but it didn't affect the taste which was very good, and I'm picky about my flavors. I think they will be even better after a day or two.
I recall using this recipe when it was featured in Taste of Home. I adjusted the recipe by using 1 tsp. salt. I also greased the baking sheets used! I'd taken the cookies to the Fellowship Coffee Time at our Chapel and they were enjoyed! delowenstein
