Scripture to Live By:
Grace be to you and peace from God the Father, and from our Lord Jesus Christ,
Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father: To whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
When I was looking for bargains after Easter I found these Pillsbury cookie mixes on sale for half price. So I bought several of them. I made the first batch as cookies and they turned out good and my family really enjoyed them. The second mix I decided to use the recipe on the back of the package and make Raspberry Lemonade Bars. We all like bars and these were especially tasty with the cream cheese and raspberry preserves.
If you like making cookies. This recipe is just great for making easy yet very tasty cookie. Here is what you will need:
1 box of Pink Lemonade Cookie mix
1 stick of butter or margarine softened.
1 can of Pink Lemonade Frosting
Mix according to the package. (I rolled the ones I made into 1 inch balls and put them on an un-greased cookie sheet approximately 2 inches apart and baked them for 8-10 minutes at 375 degrees.) Do not over bake. Just light brown will do. Let cool slightly before removing from cooking sheet. Cool completely before frosting with Pink Lemonade Frosting. Makes 3 dozen.
1 package Pillsbury Pink Lemonade Flavored Cookie Mix
1 cup butter or margarine (softened)
1/3 cup Raspberry Preserves or Jam
1/4 cup sugar
