#2609 - Lemonade Cookies

(by Shirley McNevich)

1/2 cup softened butter
1/2 cup Crisco shortening
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs
3 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 - 6oz. can Minute Maid frozen lemonade concentrate (thawed)
white sugar for sprinkling

In a mixer add butter and Crisco--beat. Add white sugar--beat. Add eggs--beat. Open the lemonade--take out 3 TBSP for later, then add remaining concentrate to the batter--beat. Add baking soda and salt--beat. Slowly add flour--beat. Drop by teaspoonfuls on to greased cookie sheets. Bake at 375 degrees for 8-10 minutes. In a bowl add reserved 3 TBSP of lemonade concentrate--stir until smooth. As you take cookies out of the oven, use a pastry brush to lightly brush lemonade concentrate on top of each cookie, then sprinkle a little white sugar on top of each cookie.
