Soft Lemonade Cookies

If you're looking for a great cookie recipe to enjoy during the summer months, this one is great! These cookies are light and go well with an ice-cold glass of lemonade (though I still prefer a cup of hot tea with my dessert!) Bring these to the next cook-out you're invited too -- they're a guaranteed hit!

Soft Lemonade Cookies

1 cup butter or margarine, softened

1 cup sugar

2 eggs

3 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 can (6 oz.) frozen lemonade concentrate, thawed divided

Additional sugar

In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar; add eggs. Combine flour and baking soda; add to teh creamed mixture alternately with 1/3 cup of lemonade concentrate. Mix well. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 400 degrees for 8 minutes. Remove to wire racks. Brush with remaining lemonade concentrate; sprinkle with sugar. Cool.

Yield: 6 dozen

If the recipe makes too many cookies, just freeze some in containers separated by layers of wax paper. Then, the next time you need a little treat, they'll be waiting for you!
