Yummy Spring Cookies + Cute Printable Tag

This post may contain affiliate links. Please read our disclosure policy here.

It’s the 10th day of the month, so I’ve gathered my creative blogging friends, and we came up with a PASTEL theme to create projects around, since SPRING is upon us! This begins our 11th month with this collaboration. We had so much fun with it the past 10 months, we decided to take it another round. One friend needed to part ways, so we added the amazingly talented Chelsea from Two Twenty One to the mix. If you’ve missed the past ten months of fun, please check them out. I’m excited to share some yummy spring cookies and another cute printable tag for my project.

These cookies are light and fluffy.  They kind of melt in your mouth (as long as you don’t overbake them! Do NOT bake them too long!).  They are citrus-y and delicious.
