Pink Lemonade Wafers

by Cate on February 24, 2004

1 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 egg
1 tsp lemon extract
1 tsp lemon juice
2 drops red food color
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt

Combine 1/2 cup sugar, butter, egg, lemon extract, lemon juice and red food coloring in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Reduce speed to low and add flour, baking powder and salt. Beat until well mixed. Cover and refrigerate until firm (1 hour). Preheat oven to 400. Shape dough into 1/2-inch balls and roll in remaining sugar. Place 2 inches apart onto lightly greased cookie sheets. Flatten balls to 1/4-inch thickness. Bake for 5-7 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Sprinkle with confectioners sugar, if desired.

Sweetnicks’ Notes: Tasty, but extremely fragile.
