Lemonade Cookies

These lemon cookies are so moist and lemony! They are nice change from the normal chocolate chip, oatmeal, or peanut butter cookies. Madison and I made these today to take them to a nearby nursing home since today is National Grandparents Day. They were a big hit!

1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
3 cups flour
1 t baking soda
6 oz. can lemonade- divided in half (pink lemonade also works great)
1/2 cup sugar

Preheat oven at 400 degrees. Cream butter and sugar with mixer. Add eggs and mix till combined well. Sift flour and soda together. Add to butter mixture alternating with 1/2 the lemonade (3oz). Drop dough using teaspoon or cookie scoop on cookie sheet. Bake 6-8 minutes. Remove from oven and immediately brush tops with remaining lemonade. Sprinkle with sugar. Place waxed paper between stored cookies so they don't stick together.

TIP OF THE DAY: It's very difficult to find lemonade in a 6oz. can so I usually buy a large can and divide it. I freeze the extra portion for use later or simply double the batch.
