Pink Lemonade Cookies!

The other day I saw a delicious-looking recipe for pink lemonade cookies at Cherished Bliss, and I knew I just HAD to try them!

Her recipe looked easy enough; it’s basically cake mix, an egg, and some Cool Whip. So I made a batch and OMG they were fabulous!

Pink Lemonade Cookies

And they’re super pretty too! ๐Ÿ™‚

Go check out Ashley’s post to get the original recipe. I followed her instructions pretty much exactly and my cookies turned out great!

Just a few things I want to note:

  • I used about 2t of lemon juice, but JM says the cookies could have used more juice. It could probably go up to 1 or 2 tablespoons and still be fine.
  • I lined my pans with tin foil because I didn’t have any parchment paper, but I always line my pans with something (things that are oven-safe include parchment paper, tin foil, Sil-pat or other silicone mats…DO NOT use wax paper!) Lining the pans gives the cookies the nice rounded edges you see in the photo above, and makes clean up a breeze! In the past when I haven’t lined my pans, the cookies are still fine, they just flatten out a bit more and get crispy edges.
  • Also, Ashley mentions this, but you need to keep your hands covered in powdered sugar so the dough doesn’t stick to you!
  • I ended up baking mine for ten minutes, and I had enough dough to fill two cookie sheets. So after five minutes I switched the sheets, top and bottom in the oven so they were evenly cooked.

And they turned out super delicious! I am definitely going to be making these again, and soon!

What are your favorite desserts? We have a delicious chocolate chip cookie recipe in our family that’s pretty amazing!

    Ok. Obviously I need to figure out a way to make these that doesn’t involve cake mix or Cool Whip because that would defeat the purpose of my own cooking blog. I’m thinking maybe strawberry jam in a white cake recipe? And heavy cream for the cool whip, obvs. Gears are turning.

    BUT. They sound delicious. The Mint Lemonade ones she linked to sound possibly even better. Nom nom nom cookies.

    I swear up and down by my some-other-brand-than-Silpat Silpats. Love them.

    My super-secret special cookie recipe is the Oatmeal Raisin Cookie recipe in Joy of Cooking. The super-secret part is to follow the variation for Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies and substitute chocolate chips for raisins BUT don’t eliminate the spices the variation tells you to eliminate (cinnamon and nutmeg, I think). So you have spiced oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. And they are amazing. You’re welcome.

      Haha! If anyone can do it I’m sure you can!

      And I love your cookie recipe! Our super secret recipe is the cookie recipe under the lid of the oatmeal canisters. Except you use chocolate chips instead of the 1C of raisins. (I just had to go check my TP holder that I upcycled from one of those things to make sure I had the recipe right!) Delicious! Sounds basically like what you do. They’re basically chocolate chip cookies with oatmeal and spices in it, yum!

        Somehow it’s better than just oatmeal raisin cookies or just oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. I don’t know why, but it’s a whole ‘nother cookie level. ^_^

          Alright, to be fair, my mom pointed out that “our recipe” being the family recipe from my aunt that we use for choc chip cookies is slightly different from the one under the oatmeal can lid. But it’s similar (hers is more delicious because it uses Crisco!), and when we’re lazy “our recipe” being the recipe JM and I use is exactly the same as the one under the lid, but with choc chips instead of raisins ๐Ÿ™‚ Sometimes we just don’t have any Crisco…

            It’s like my mom’s (actually our neighbor’s family recipe) for biscochitos. The key ingredient is lard. You just can’t go wrong with that! ^_~
