I love Easter! It’s just as important as Christmas but you don’t have to rush to the mall to buy presents. We just get to rejoice in our risen Lord & Savior. I feel like many times people forget what Easter is all about. I know I have in the past. At Christmas time we always remind ourself not to get all wrapped up in presents and remember the true meaning of Christmas. But what about Easter? Do we really embrace the true meaning of Easter? Or do we go to church and then embrace the lunch at grandmas house? Do we REALLY understand why we celebrate Easter? If you want to know more about Easter, my church Ashland Avenue Baptist Church has an online podcast every Sunday. Tune in this Sunday to hear about why we celebrate Easter.

Since its Easter and the weather is so nice I thought these lemon cookies would be a great way to welcome Spring! We don’t have any food traditions for Easter. Everyone just gathers at grandma’s house for dinner and let the little kids hunt eggs. I don’t understand the purpose of hunting eggs but the little kids love it.

There’s not too much lemon and the right amount of sweetness to it. You can even taste the real lemon juice in it. You can make these big or little but I think their better mini. Make sure you don’t over bake. You will be able to judge when their done by the lightly brown edges and the center will look set and not shiny or gooey.

Hope you have a wonderful and Happy Easter with you family and friends.
