As we hit the end of February my thoughts turn to springtime.

Maybe it is my wishful thinking that it will hurry up and get here. I am tired of being cold, and wet!

Maybe it is my excitement thinking about getting my new raised bed garden finished and ready to be planted. The Mr is building my beds for me in the next couple of weeks and my grow light, and heating pads, and seeds, and seed pots are all here ready to be set up this weekend.

I have a whole corner of my office completely set up and dedicated to growing my little seedlings, and boy oh boy did I go crazy with the number of seeds I purchased! But, I just couldn't help myself. I had so much fun with the few things I grew in my back porch quarantine container garden I just had to up my game for this gardening go-round. I hope it all works out!

Or, maybe it is just that I love lemon and berries, and spring just calls for those flavors. 

Don't you think so?

I always say lemon reminds me of sunshine, so no matter what the weather if I am eating a lemon treat it makes me feel bright and sunny inside.

Weird? Probably, but that is just how I roll 🤣

This year I decided to take the uber-popular thumbprint cookies I made for Christmas, and make them "springy" by adding my quick low carb lemon curd to them. 

And boy oh boy am I glad I did! 

And so is the family.

STEP 6

Spoon a teaspoon of the lemon curd into each cookie.

FAQS ABOUT LEMON THUMBPRINT COOKIES

Last thoughts about Keto Lemon Thumbprint Cookies


Between how easy the lemon curd is to make, and how quickly these cookies come together, I really can't see any reason for not making these Lemon Thumbprint Cookies.

Well, the only downside might be that they are so freakin' good you will want to horde them and eat them all yourself!

Ya, that could be an issue.

But, if you have willpower, you need to grab those ingredients and get a batch, or 3, going right now.

To me, these are the quintessential spring or Easter treat. They are perfect to add that little "something" to your menu that will make everyone smile.

And, to me, when everyone is smiling I am a very happy girl!
