Pink Lemonade Cookies
1 cup sugar
¼ butter, softened
2 teaspoons freshly grated lemon peel
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 to 2 drops red food color
1 cup all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
Powdered sugar, if desired
Heat oven to 400 degrees.
Combine ½ cup sugar, butter, egg, lemon peel, lemon juice and red food color in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Reduce speed to low; add flour, baking powder and salt. Beat until well mixed. Cover; refrigerate until firm (1 hour).
Shape dough into ½-inch balls; roll in remaining sugar. Place 2-inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Flatten balls to ¼-inch thickness with bottom of buttered glass dipped in sugar. Bake for 5 to 7 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Sprinkle with powdered sugar, if desired.
