♥ A Sweet Summer ♥

It seems like all we've done this summer besides staying on the go........is eat and then eat some more....and we've been in a "sweets" mood!  :)

We love these lemon cookies around here.  Besides tasting great (almost like gourmet cookies), they're super easy to make!  All it takes is a lemon cake mix, 2 eggs, and 1/3 cup of oil mixed.  Roll into quarter size balls and dip into powdered sugar.  Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 10-12 minutes (they will begin to crack a little).  It usually takes a bit longer in my oven.  Everybody loves these!



Next up was Grandmama Love Day I guess.  She made these for us last week while Trey and Shauna were visiting with us.......brownies and fudge all in one day!  Even though it looks like alot, believe it or not, they didn't last long with this bunch!



And then after a fun evening at the carnival Sunday and seeing folks enjoying funnel cakes, I came home and made the next closest thing for us......homemade donuts!  I had forgotten how much I loved these.  I grew up with my mom making them.  These are also super easy.....canned biscuits pulled apart to make the whole in the middle....deep fried, dipped in a mixture of powdered sugar and water, and then sprinkled with powdered sugar.  Oh, and of course, there are no calories in these.  :)  Yummy!



Not sure what it is about summer, but it sure has put us in a "sweet" mode!  :)  Now I know you're hungry, so go make your family a sweet treat!  :)

Be sure and stop by tomorrow to join my guest and I on the sunporch for a chat!  You'll love her!
 
Have a great day!  :)

Yum, I'll have to make the lemon ones for my husband, he loves lemon anything.

I've been baking a lot lately too, but I think in my case it's just a way of giving my family a little home comfort in the middle of the chaos surrounding us at the moment :)

Hope you're enjoying your summer.

I haven't made biscuit donut in a super long time. I imagine the kids would love to have those for an afternoon snack. I'll tell them to thank Tammy! :)
