I took these cookies to our community's monthly Wine Social. I knew they were a hit & a keeper when even the men commented on the delicious flavor. I hope you enjoy these cookies that are easy to make and filled with the taste of spring! Joan, thanks for another great treat, so what if I now have to walk an extra mile to fit into my shorts. It's worth it.
