Cute Spring Cookies

First and foremost, the Chocolate Chip Cookie has a place in any recipe roundup – no matter the season or occasion!  Am I right?!  And while this roundup only includes 1 recipe, there are a couple more worth looking into.  The Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies and Caramel Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies are two small batch cookie recipes that deserve a shout out too!

Enough chocolate chip talk.  There are a few other cookie recipes for Spring that need some love.  I mean, can you have a more Springtime cookie than a Strawberry Shortcake Biscuit Cookie that goes as far to have a dollop of Strawberry Whipped Coconut Cream on top?  Or another lemon dessert (lemon is a must for Spring!) with the Lemon Shortbread Cookies. 

And last, but not least, the Spring cookie to beat all Spring cookies – Raspberry and Lemon Iced Cookie Sandwiches.  Perhaps the sweetest little cookie on the blog.  Freeze-dried raspberries give the cookies their tart flavor and beautiful color.  Plus an easy lemon icing adds just enough sweetness.  But, let’s not forget the creamy filling that is actually just the oh-so-popular Vanilla Butter Free Frosting!
