Pink Lemonade

Pink Lemonade Cookies
1/2 cup butter, no subs, please
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 large egg
1/3 cup frozen lemonade concentrate, thawed
1 3/4 cup all purpose flour
Pink and yellow sanding sugar

Preheat oven to 350
Line baking sheets with parchment
Cream butter in the bowl of the electric mixer for about 30 seconds. 
Add sugar, baking powder and baking soda. Beat well to combine and the mixture is light and fluffy
Add egg and concentrate. If you would like to add about 4 drops of red food coloring to make it a nice shade of pink
Drop onto baking sheets using medium scoop.

Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until the edges are golden brown.  Cool on sheets for about a minute then transfer to cooling racks.

Makes about 36

You can use limeade instead of lemonade and add some chopped dried cherries for a wonderful  new cookie!  I would use green food coloring instead of red though.
