Lemon-Lime and Thyme Cookies

First let me say, Happy Easter! What are your plans today?
I'm up early making potato salad for lunch after church.
This is the first year since I was a kid that I have a proper Easter dress. I can't wait to wear it. Do you dress up for Easter?
Need a treat for today.....
Lemon-Lime and Thyme Cookies are the perfect Spring treat. Almost a shortbread cookie but not with a crunchy. The flavor will have your friends asking "hmmmmm,what is in this?"

The recipe, from Joy the Baker, suggests a method of combining the zests and sugar in a way that brings out the essential oils and perfumes the sugar. The link is to her website for Citrus Sables, a similar recipe without the thyme.

While her recipe calls for forming the dough into a log and cutting circles, I had some extra time so I rolled out the dough and made flowers. Fun and festive for Spring.

Happy Easter!


  1. I haven't dressed up for Easter since I was little. I miss doing that!

  2. SO my husband is a lime fanatic! He would love these! I think we need a picture of your adorable easter dress!

  3. These sound awesome! I made a similar cookie but with basil. Will have to try thyme next time.
