Lemon Cooler Cookies

Ready for Summer Reading!
Ready for Summer Reading!

Dear Bookie who loves some summer sunshine,

Enter Lemon Land with this recipe I followed from Stephanie Lynn at her quaint and cute baking site Under the Table and Dreaming.

My favorite part about this recipe is it takes only a few minutes to shake up, so you’re ready for a quick Book Club dessert.

Combine them with zesty summer reads and you’re all set for the beach, park, patio, pool, La La Land, or wherever your little bookie heart desires!

Perfectly paired with:

  1. The Awakening of Sunshine Girl by: Paige McKenzie
  2. The Carrie Diaries Series by: Candace Bushnell
  3. Tumbling by: Caela Carter

Ingredients Needed:

1/2 Cup of Powdered Sugar
1/3 Cup of Sugar
1/4 Teaspoon of Salt
1/3 Cup of Butter Flavored Shortening {regular Crisco can be used as well}
1 Egg
1/2 Teaspoon of Vanilla
1 1/2 Cups of Flour
1 1/2 Teaspoons of Baking Powder

1 Tablespoon of Water

1 Cup of Powdered Sugar
1 Teaspoon of Lemonade Drink Mix {like Country Time}
Preheat the oven to 325°
In a large bowl combine the powdered sugar, sugar, salt, shortening, egg, vanilla and salt. Beat with a hand mixer until well blended and smooth.
Gradually add the flour and baking powder. Once the dough begins to crumble, add in the water and continue mixing until a dough ball forms.
Hand roll the dough into small balls {about 3/4 inch in diameter} and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. {if you do not have parchment paper a lightly greased cookie sheet will work as well} Slightly flatten each dough ball with the back of spoon.
Bake in the oven for 15-17 minutes.
Combine the topping mix in a large plastic bag, shake to mix and set aside.
Once the cookies are removed from the oven toss them in the plastic bag, while they are still warm, and shake until the cookies are covered.
