I made up a batch of these recently and they were very good. You use lemonade in the mix so the frosting actually has a "bite" to it. Everyone who tasted them seemed to really like them.
Cookies:1 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cup sugar
1 envelope of lemonade mix (I used about half, these are the small envelopes)
6 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 cup sour cream
1. In a large mixing bowl, combine butter, sugar, and lemonade mix. Beat at med speed until fluffy. Add eggs and beat well.
2. In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda & salt. Add flour mixture to butter mixture alternatively with sour cream. Beat at low speed, blending well after each addition. Divide dough into 4 parts and refrigerate about 2 hours.
3. Preheat oven to 350°.
4. On floured surface roll each portion of chilled dough into little over 1/8" thickness. Using 2 1/2" round cookie cutter (or cutter of your choice) cut dough. Place one inch apart on ungreased baking sheet. Bake 7 to 9 minutes. Remove to cooling rack and cool completely before frosting.
Frosting:4 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup frozen lemonade concentrate, thawed
food coloring (optional but so cute)
Combine above ingredients and mix well. Frost cookies like little sandwiches.
Notes:This was so good but it made a lot of cookies. For small gatherings half the batch
