This year I’ve definitely been in the spirit to share St. Patrick’s Day inspired recipes with you. Typically I might share one each year, but this year I’ve already shared three! I started with my decadent Grasshopper Ice Cream Tart and then followed with my Chicken Reuben Sheet Pan Nachos. Now I can’t wait to fill your your cookie jar with these Coconut Lime Sugar Cookies. Not only are they the requisite green color, but they also help to bring some tropical flavor to what has been a cold and snowy week. I definitely have spring fever!
These cookies were completely inspired by the Strawberry Sugar Cookies that everyone seemed to fall in love with last month. A few ingredient swaps – and of course a color change! – and they’re ready for a new holiday! Not only would they be perfect as a school class treat for St. Patrick’s Day, but they’re bright citrus flavor makes them suitable for baby and wedding showers that are certainly popular events in the spring. I must also admit they’re a cheery addition to your countertop cookie jar as well – even if they did disappear quickly!
These Coconut Lime Sugar Cookies pack a bright citrus punch thanks to a quick kitchen shortcut. No limes, lime juice or lime zest required! These cookies get their signature green color and lime flavor from a favorite childhood pantry staple – Jello! The Jello powder is the perfect kitchen shortcut that allows these cookies to come together in just minutes. Sparkling with sugar and studded with coconut flakes, these cookies are definitely a welcome sign of spring.
These Coconut Lime Sugar Cookies are absolutely divine straight from the oven while they’re warm and not quite set. What can I say? I’m a sucker for a warm cookie and have absolutely no willpower! They also made the perfect mid-afternoon treat when this mama was needing a quick pick-me-up to get me through the rest of the day.
