Pink Lemonade Cookies

pink lemonade cookies

Pink Lemonade is one of my favourite summertime drinks.  The tartness of it is so refreshing – perfect for a hot day.  When I saw this recipe featured on the Life Made Delicious Facebook Page I knew that I had to make it for an upcoming picnic.  I was really excited and intrigued to see just how much the lemonade flavour will come through.  And, it did!  Every single cookie I made was gobbled up at our picnic.  A sure hit with everyone young and old.
