Both Lemon Lime Slices Cookies by sewlicioushomedecor

I wanted to make a simple cookie today using my lemons. They were not happy sitting in the bowl all by their self.

Then the limes were crying from their lonely produce bowl, so I re-united both the lemons and the limes and made these Lemon Lime {Cookie} Slices.  I am a fruit uniter like that.

Then the green and yellow sprinkles wanted to come out and play, so I rolled the cookies in the sprinkles. Don’t they make the cookies look pretty.
