Strawberry Lemonade Cookies
The end of the school year is approaching, and we have the perfect summertime, poolside treats for your kiddos. They can even help with baking and decorating these, too! Strawberry Lemonade cookies – yep, sounds like summer to us! Better yet, both the cookies and the icing are made with our No Sugar Added Strawberry Lemonade – yum!
Makes: 2 dozen
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 10 minutes
¾ cup organic butter, softened to room temperature
1 cup organic sugar
2 large organic eggs
1 tsp organic vanilla extract
1 ½ tsp Uncle Matt’s No Sugar Added Strawberry Lemonade
1 tbsp crushed freeze dried organic strawberries
2 ½ cups organic all purpose flour
1 tsp organic baking powder
Pinch of salt
1 cup organic powdered sugar
2 tbsp Uncle Matt’s No Sugar Added Strawberry Lemonade
2 drops organic pink food coloring (optional)
For topping: more crushed freeze dried strawberries
Preheat oven to 350˚F and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
Cream butter and sugar in a stand mixer until light and fluffy. Add in eggs, vanilla, strawberry lemonade and crushed strawberries and continue mixing. Add in flour, baking powder and salt and mix until dough forms.
Use a small cookie scoop to portion the dough. Roll the dough into balls and place on cookie sheet. Press down gently with the back of a measuring cup to flatten.
Bake for 10 minutes. Transfer to a cooling rack and let cool completely before adding glaze.
To make glaze, whisk together powdered sugar, strawberry lemonade and pink food coloring until smooth. If needed, add more liquid to thin out, or add more powdered sugar to make it thicker.
Drizzle over the cookies and top with more crushed strawberries (optional).
