Strawberry Lemonade Cookies with pink lemonade frosting

When I saw this post by Tiffany at Eat at Home I knew I would have to try this simple recipe.  She created this recipe herself.  Kudos to her! Check out her pictures at the link.

I wanted to do lots of baking to give away for Valentine's Day and these sounded divine.

I wasn't disappointed!  I baked them when we were snowed in, several days before I was going to give them away, so I froze them, then thawed and frosted them. 

Just lovely and 'sunshine-y' don't you think?


1 (18 ozs) strawberry cake mix
1 stick butter, softened
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 Tb. water
1/2 c. pink lemonade mix (dry)

Preheat oven to 350.  In large bowl, combine all ingredients and mix with mixer until blended. Drop by teaspoons onto baking stone or cookie sheet.  Bake 8 - 10 minutes.   (I used my medium Pampered Chef scoop and baked them a tad bit longer for a larger cookie)


1-1/2 c. powdered sugar
3 Tb. powdered pink lemonade mix
3 Tb. soft butter
1 - 3 Tb. milk

Stir powdered sugar and lemonade mix together in small bowl. Stir in the butter; add milk gradually, until frosting reaches spreading consistency.  Spread cooled cookies.  Decorate if desired.

I hope you'll try them too - they'd be delicious any time of the year.
