Pink Lemonade Butter Cookies

Arlene M.


I got this recipes from someone in another recipe forum, made them as a birthday gift, and found them to be so good I couldn't resist eating a bunch myself!

If you can't find Pink Lemonade cake mix (which is apparently seasonal), you can use other flavors; just change the lemon extract and zest to something that is complimentary to the flavor you're selected. (Orange with orange, almond with chocolate, etc.)

How to Make Pink Lemonade Butter Cookies


  • 1Cream butter until soft and creamy.

    Add cream cheese; beat until smooth.

    Beat in egg, lemon extract and lemon zest until combined.

    Add cake mix; beat until well mixed. If dough is too soft to roll into balls, refrigerate 1-2 hours until easy to handle.

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

    Roll dough into 1 1/4-inch balls; roll balls in granulated sugar to coat, then drop them into confectioners' sugar to coat well. Place the dough balls 2" apart on ungreased cookie sheets; flatten slightly.

    Bake @ 350 degrees for 9-12 minutes. DO NOT overbake. Take cookies out of the oven when they look a little underdone.

    Let the cookies cool on the pan for 1-2 minutes; remove to wire racks and cool completely. Store in an airtight airtight. Makes about 2 1/2-3 dozen.
