Boy, I have a real treat for you all today!

Since summer is coming to an end, I thought I would share with you a treat that screams summer time. If you are a fan of key lime pie, then you are going to flip out over these key lime pie cookies!

These cookies taste just like the graham cracker crust and I am sure you can guess what the frosting tastes like.

This recipe makes about 3 dozen cookies. So there is more than enough to share with your loved ones as you celebrate the last few weeks of summer.

 

Until next time,
