Lemonade Cookies

A great easy cookie recipe for the kids. This Lemonade Cookies Recipe is perfect for Spring time or anytime!

The weather here in Florida took a turn for the better the past couple days. Well, not so much today because it is getting ready to rain, but hey at least my garden will get watered!  There is always a positive side to things.  I can’t wait for the days of playing in the sprinkler, running around in the yard with water guns, and cold lemonade!

That is what inspired these Lemonade cookies!  My family loves lemonade!  We make our own lemonade syrup that is amazing for a fresh glass of the cold stuff. I know some of my readers live where the weather hasn’t begun to warm up yet.  So, to give you a taste of things to come you should whip up a batch of these Lemonade Cookies!  You will be so glad you did!
