Where To Buy Key Lime Cookies?

Well, our “go to” is our local Crumbl Store.  The store in our area opened recently and my daughter is OBSESSED!  She orders several dozen for her and her co-workers every couple of weeks.  Don’t get too attached to a certain flavor because they rotate their flavors weekly.  You then get to fall in love with a new cookie! Mine are the key lime ones- but you’d never know that, right? LOL!

How Long Are Key Limes Good For?

Fresh, uncut limes will last a week on the counter and up to two weeks in the pantry. The fruits should last for about a month in the refrigerator, and possibly a few weeks longer if you go all out and put them in a zippered bag.

How Much Key Lime Juice Equals One Lime?

One key lime is equal to two teaspoons of key lime juice.

How To Store These Easy Key Lime Pie Cookies?

Store these cookies in either an airtight container or in a zip lock baggie.

Can You freeze Easy Key Lime Pie Cookies?

Yes, you can freeze these cookies.  If you do, I would suggest wrapping each cookie in a plastic wrap before placing it in an airtight freezer safe container.  Then to defrost, remove the amount of cookies you want and sit on the counter at room temperature until completely defrosted. 

Key lime cookies for spring? Why not! These cookies are the perfect way to celebrate the arrival of warmer weather, even if it is still a little chilly outside. Plus, they’re super easy to make – just like your favourite key lime pie. So go ahead and indulge in a sweet treat that will remind you of summertime fun.

These look delicious! My daughter-in-law has been raving about Crumbl cookies, but I haven't tasted any yet. . . maybe I'll just make my own!

Thanks so much for joining the Grace at Home party at Imparting Grace. I'm featuring you this week!
