Lemon Butter Cookies

Lemon Butter Cookies | Butter and Sprinkles

Time slips away from me much too fast! It’s already time for another Bakin’ Friends reveal – can you believe it? This month, the secret ingredient was lemon and I was paired up with Tami. I had baked for Tami in the past, so I was pretty excited that it was now her turn to bake for me!

Lemon Butter Cookies | Butter and Sprinkles

I rarely seek out anything lemon flavored, and I have no idea why because I really enjoy it! Tami sent me a bunch of lemon butter cookies cutely decorated as lemons and lemon slices. I almost didn’t want to eat them. But, before I had even remembered that I needed to snap a picture, I had already eaten two cookies!
