No work, no laundry, no list of immediate to-dos. Yes, it finally happened! Last Sunday afternoon, I found myself with a few extra hours and no list of things I had to be doing. The weather was gorgeous so I decided to go park myself outside with some snacks and a few magazines. My “need to read” magazine pile is about the size of the empire state building and I figured I should probably start reading some of them before the stack gets any bigger. So, I made these lemon tea cookies and headed outside. It was glorious! A cup of tea, snacks and some magazines all while enjoying the beautiful weather, I honestly couldn’t remember the last time I did that.
Here is an Instagram pick I posted on Sunday afternoon:
These lemon tea cookies are just as wonderful as the beautiful weather. I was craving something sweet but simple. The lemon juice and zest adds the perfect amount of lemon flavor. They would be great for spring brunch or an event such as a bridal shower, baby shower, Mother’s Day or Easter. And best of all, they are great for shipping.
When baking a batch of cookies, I always have way more than I need to eat (want to eat is a different story). So I love passing on my leftovers to any willing and deserving friend.
In order to spread a little sunshine to others, I signed up for the Leftovers Club and was matched up with Joanne from Joanne Eats Well with Others. The idea of the club is to bake up something that others with love and pass on your leftovers. The club is always looking for more bloggers, so head over and sign up if you are interested in receiving fun treats.
Oh, and make sure to head over to Joanne Eats Well with Others and check out all of the fabulous recipes that Joanne has to share. She rocks!
