Lemonade Cookies

These sweet & tangy little cookies are perfect for a summer treat.   They “crack” as they cool so they look pretty on a plate as well!

Place the remaining 1/2 cup of lemonade mix in a shallow bowl.   Roll dough into 1-inch balls and roll them around in the powdered lemonade mix.   Place on a greased cookie sheet, or use parchment paper on a cookie sheet.   Bake until the edges just begin to turn brown, about 10 minutes.

Cool for 3 minutes on the baking sheet before removing them to cooling racks.   Makes about 5 dozen cookies.
