  1. Sift the flour, cornstarch, and salt in a bowl. In a larger bowl, beat 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar with butter using an electric mixer until the mixture is creamy and free of lumps. Beat in the lemon extract, then mix in the flour mixture to make a smooth dough. Chill the dough for 1 hour.
  2. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). Mix 1 cup of confectioners' sugar with the lemonade drink mix in a plastic zipper bag. Close the zipper, and shake the bag to blend.
  3. Scoop up about 1 1/2 teaspoon of dough per cookie, and roll into balls. Place the cookies onto ungreased baking sheets.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the cookies are set, about 20 minutes. Remove from oven, and let cool on sheets for 2 minutes.
  5. Drop the warm cookies into the bag of lemon sugar, about 5 or 6 at a time, and shake to coat with the mixture. Shake off excess sugar, and allow the cookies to finish cooling on wire racks. When cool, shake them in the lemon sugar one more time.

I just finished making these cookies and they turned out awesome! I had no problem whatsoever and I followed the recipe adding fresh lemon zest (about a teaspoon) to batter. I used a little mo...

great but I doubled the recipe but my sister told me to use 1 pkg of kool aid for the whole thing it was much better. (a whole package of kool aid for a single batch was too bitter)

This was exactly what I was looking for! Wonderful!!! Tart, buttery and tender. Girl Scout Lemon Coolers have nothing on these lovelies! I measured my flour before I sifted which gave me bal...

Super easy to make. "Drop them in the powdered sugar" was laughable since they were terribly crumbly until the next day. It seemed they need 24 hours to cool before you could pick them up. I was...

These cookies are great! They have a nice, lemony flavor. I did have a bit of a problem with them crumbling, but they still tasted great. birdluv4ever, your reviews and pictures are awesome! I f...

I just baked the first bunch. Actually, even making rather small balls, I didn't get more than 30 cookies. Since they are really yummy, I'll just start over tomorrow... I was happy about the rec...
