The easiest Lemonades Girl Scout Cookie Recipe

I am a lazy baker.  I don’t like to make cookies that have a lot of steps, or have to be rolled out.  I know, they are usually the best looking, but, what can I say?  I like to make cookies that go up quickly and easily and are yummy and delicious. That said, I modified the recipe and now it is the Easiest Lemonades Girl Scout Cookie Recipe …. ever.  Trust me, you will want to try these.

If Girl Scout are not selling cookies in your area right now and you are craving Lemonades, this is the recipe for you.  They are really very quick and easy. I promise!

Step 1:

Cream together the butter, sugar, lemon and vanilla extracts until light and fluffy.

Step 2:

Slowly add the flour and salt until a dough forms.  Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes.  This gives you enough time to clean up the kitchen, prep your cookie sheets and pre-heat your oven.

Step 3:

Here is where I become lazy.  You can roll out the dough until it is about 1/4 inch thick and then cut with a round cookie cutter.  I don’t like to roll out cookies, so I roll the cookies into balls and them smoosh them flat with a drinking glass.  If you want, go ahead and roll them out, but my shortcut doesn’t effect the taste of the cookies at all.

Step 4:

Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 2o minutes.  I line my cookie sheets with parchment paper so the cookies don’t stick. You want to bake these until the edges start to just turn brown.  Remove from the oven and cool on a rack.

Step 5:

Once the cookies have cooled.  Make the icing by combining all of the ingredients and then drizzle over the top of the cookies.  You can make nice lines like the original Lemonades have or simply frost them with the icing like I have done.
