Pink Lemonade Cookies

The perfect summer party cookie! These Pink Lemonade Cookies are sweet, tangy and delicious! 

Pink Lemonade Cookies

Last weekend I was out for a run and I saw some kids having a lemonade stand. It made me smile (though I quickly changed my route because I had no money with me) and brought back fond childhood memories of holding lemonade stands in our front yard.

Pink Lemonade doesn’t make a whole lot of sense… there are no pink lemons, but it’s pretty and summery and girly and fun and that’s enough for me 🙂 These Pink Lemonade Cookies are sweet and tangy and will transport you back to your childhood days sipping lemonade at the pool or chanting “Pink Lemonade for Sale, 25 cents!”

Pink Lemonade Cookies

Just like pink lemonade, these cookies are quite the sugary indulgence! There is powdered lemonade mix in both the cookies and the frosting. The cookie is essentially a sugar cookie flavored with pink lemonade and then the frosted with a thick coating of pink lemonade buttercream frosting!

I think these cookies would be perfect for a bridal or baby shower, pool party or backyard bbq! They definitely aren’t an every day kind of cookie, but they are great for those fun, summer celebrations!
