These just sound like something you nibble while sitting in the porch swing on a lazy summer day.
Sorry I missed a few days. My life sometimes gets away from me and then I realize as I’m falling asleep that I didn’t post a recipe that day. I’m hoping to finish up the cookies section over the next couple weeks. There are easily 50-75 recipe cards total for cookies, cake and pies. Not that it surprises me, heh.
1 c butter or margerine
1 c sugar
2 eggs — add
3 c flour
1 tsp soda
1 6 oz can frozen lemonade
Combine with first mixture using 1/2 c lemonade. Drop onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake about 10 min. Brush hot cookies with lemonade, sprinkle with sugar.
The note on the back of the card does not pertain to the cookie recipe itself. It says “Icy Lemon Soup in Bach’s Lunch is nice for summer, but use only 7 tbsp of lemon juice.” I don’t know what Bach’s Lunch could be, because there are about a million churches and catering companies using that play on words for their lunch music programs and company names. However, I did find a 1966 Life magazine article about Avgolemono Soup, a Greek dish made from eggs and lemons among other things, and it was called Icy Lemon Soup. Again, I’m not sure how this relates to Lemonade Cookies, but it’s interesting.
Uffda 400 degrees for ten minutes? This recipe sounds like something my Grands would like to make, they sometimes make cookies from scratch! :)
Mmmmmm, now I’m hungry. Such a simple recipe but it sounds wonderful!
Connie, I know, 400 for 10 seems like you’d get back little lemony rocks, lol.
I baked my cookies at 400 for 12 minutes and they came out perfectly.
That said, I think you’ve got a transcription error. You say: “Combine with first mixture using 1/2 c lemonade.” I think you’re misreading. My interpretation is that, “using 1/2 c. of lemonade” goes with the section below the line. As in, “using 1/2 c. of lemonade, brush the hot cookies with lemonade and sprinkle with sugar.”
Thanks for the tip and the bake time & temp. I always like hearing how the recipes turn out for people and their experience! I think you are right about the use of the lemonade at the end, too.
