Mother’s Day is right around the corner and there’s something very special about treating mom to yummy baked treats. This Key Lime cookie recipe from Feed Your Soul Bakery is just the thing, especially if your mom is into America’s Classic dessert, Key Lime Pie. They’re light, zesty and a perfect combination of lime and vanilla. It’s also way healthier than Key Lime Pie since the recipe contains no sweetened condensed milk.
If you’re not much of a baker, no need to worry, you can order tons of treats directly from their website. You can’t go wrong with the Happy Mother’s Day 30 Piece Gift Tin. It’s got 30 assorted cookies, including Honey Oatmeal Raisin, White Chocolate Cherry Jubilee, White Chocolate Snickerdoodle, Sweet Toffee, Soft Chocolate Chunk, and Triple Chocolate Cocoa Loco.
