Just finished baking the pink lemonade cookies I posted a few minutes ago and am including a picture of them. I ended up rolling the tops in colored sugar to add “sparkle”. Just wanted to mention that any time you are using any type of box mix to begin a recipe, always use unsalted butter as your shortening when it calls for oil or butter. Because prepared mixes already have so much salt in them, using salted butter will just add more of a salty taste.

This summer, Pillsbury brought a whole new line of cookie mixes. They now have Orangesicle, Pink Lemonade and Key Lime Cookie (and cupcake) mixes. My fav is the orange and pink lemonade. Beceause the recipe on the box calls for butter, it tasted like homemade pink lemonade sugar cookies. Soft and oh so yummy. Go to the store right now and pick up a few boxes before they disappear from the shelves. You will be so glad you did.
Box of pink lemonade cookie mix
1 stick of melted unsalted butter
Set oven to 375. Combine cookie mix with butter and egg in bowl. Mix until soft dough is formed. Drop dough by rounded teaspoons onto ungreased cookie sheet 2″ apart.
Bake for 8-10 min or until edges are light brown. Allow to cool for 2 min before removing from cookie sheet. Store cookies in airtight container.
