It’s finally spring time and I’m excited to share some yummy lime and lemon cookies plus a fun printable tag to go along with them!
I’ve tried. I’ve really tried to stay away from printables and puns. But I just can’t give them up. I wracked my brain to think of something spring-y. And this is what I came up with. You can use it for a friend, neighbor, teacher, your love…whatever you want. Just write a cute little note at the bottom and call ‘er good.

Now on to these yummy lime and lemon cookies:
The base of this cookie is from my old favorites Frosted Orange Carrot Cookies that my Mom made growing up. MMMMMM.. they are so good and remind me of spring. I wanted to switch them up a bit and play with lemon and lime. So that’s what I did. Threw caution to the wind and just went for it. Luckily they turned out.

For the glaze

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.
