Happy Monday!

Are you ready to see some darn cute cookies today?

Some days I have such a craving for cookies. When that moment comes, I instantly get on cookie making with my boys. They absolutely love getting messy in the kitchen with their mommy.

These easy lemon sugar cookies are perfect to ring in spring and the taste is so super fresh.

Spring is all about flowers, so I made up these cute cookie flower pots using lemon sugar cookies for a base. I dropped small dots on my cookies and they turned out just darling.

We love making cookies, however, we never really make icing covered cookies. I can never decorate beautifully with icing. I chose pink and blue to decorate but it’s really up to you what color you go with. The icing is made with powdered sugar, food coloring and a little bit of water.

I bought these small flower pots at dollar store { 3/$1 } and dropped some colorful eggs in the bottom to hold the flower stick.
