Lemon Cooler Cookies

Do you remember Sunshine Lemon Cooler Cookies? I first had them at my grandparents house and remember in the summer when I went there they would be the first thing I'd look for in the cupboard when I got there. My grandmother is known for her cookie baking so for her to have a boxed cookie you know they have to be good! I found this recipe over at Recipe Zaar ( now).

Lemon Cooler Cookies

1/2 C powdered sugar
1/2 C sugar
1/3 C shortening
1 large egg
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/8 tsp salt
1 1/2 C cake flour
1/4 tsp Koolaid unsweetened lemonade mix
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 Tbsp water

Lemon Powdered Sugar:

1 C powdered sugar 
1/4 tsp kool aid unsweetened lemonade mix

 Preheat oven to 325°.   In a large bowl, cream together: sugars, shortening, egg, vanilla and salt.
 Add the flour and baking powder and lemonade mix. Add 1 Tbsp of water and continue mixing until dough forms a ball.  Roll dough into 3/4-inch balls and flatten slightly onto a lightly greased cookie sheet.  Bake for 15-18 minutes or until light brown.  While cookies bake combine 1 cup powdered sugar with the lemonade powder.  Remove cookies from the oven  and roll in powdered sugar mixutre. Let cool them roll again in powdered sugar.
