Lime Cookie Bars

Lime Cookie Bars

Spring is in the air! We had temperatures in the 40s this weekend, it felt like a heat wave.

You know winter was rough when I roll down my car windows in 40-degree weather!

It felt so nice to finally not freeze and not have to bundle up for once.

To celebrate the warmer spring temperatures, I made these delicious Lime Cookie Bars which taste just like a fruity summer drink and with their pretty pastel green color they are the perfect St. Patrick’s Day treat!

These bars have a great texture of a soft chewy cookie combined with a hint of lime.

I drizzled these cookie bars with white cookie icing and SPRINKLED them with colored sprinkles to make them even more fun and festive for St. Patrick’s Day!

UPDATE: I’ve also made these for Christmas and called them “Christmas Tree Sticks” lol. Everyone LOVED them!
