What do you do when life hands you disappointing lemon cookies? Make macaroons!
These turned out to be the perfect way to salvage the cookies. Frosting always makes me happy, and the flavor really brought the lemon punch I was looking for. It also softened the cookie a bit, making it not as dry.
I still decided to revamp the recipe, but at least this saved me from wasting a bunch of cookies.
Soft Lemonade Macaroons
1 container prepared white icing
2 teaspoons lemon extract
Mix extract into prepared frosting and whip thoroughly.
Pair Soft Lemonade cookies of similar size. Pipe or spread frosting onto the bottom of one cookie. Top with matching pair to create a sandwich.
If you like a lot of frosting, you could use a lot a roll in sprinkles or colored sugar. Allow frosting to set before storing in an airtight container.
Makes about 3 dozen.
