Citrus Slices {Mother’s Day}

Happy Mother’s Day! What does Mother’s Day have to do with citrus cookies?! Well, let me tell you…

I love lemon flavored treats. I definitely get my love for lemons from my Mom. We enjoy eating fresh lemons (and limes), topped with a sprinkle of salt. YUM!

I was so excited to try out a new recipe and technique that I just had to ship my mom some citrus cookies.

I have been dying to make these lemon poppyseed cookies ever since I stumbled across them on The Sweet Adventures of SugarBelle. I also fell in love with the fruit cookies in The Confetti Cakes Cookbook. **I really like her technique of using thicker icing for the segments and a paintbrush to smooth and add texture. **

The Sweet Adventures of SugarBelle and I must have been on the same brainwave because she posted this awesome tutorial while I was icing my cookies. Luckily, I happened to have a few extra cookies to try it out on.

Mmm mmm…Did I mention I LOVE lemons (and limes)!

All packaged up and ready to mail. For tips on mailing cookies see University of Cookie. I wrapped my cookies (bags from Uline and twine from The Twinery).

  1. You are the most incredible mother! Happy mothers day.

  2. Everything looks amazing, makes me want to bake some myself. My girls love baking, but it’s usually oatmeal cookies here, I am not very creative. I’ll have to check some of your tutorial links. Thanks for sharing!

  3. BreAna, You are truly amazing. You are very talented. I will keep watching for more picture of your yummy cookies. After Friday you should post a picture of my “special order”. Love you! Mom

  4. Yum!!! If I ever get married can I hire you to make the cookies? I’m drooling just looking at all your fantastic creations! Your photos are amazing too! Yay BreAna!

  5. These look amazing. It’s almost torture looking at all these treats and not being able to snatch one up and taste it! I wish I had your talent. Sadly, if I tried duplicating one of your creations they would drastically pale in comparison.

  6. I just saw these on your side bar and HAD to take a look. They are so charming! I love citrus flavors but rarely get to indulge since my husband won’t touch a dessert that dosen’t contain chocolate. I may just have to try them anyway…and eat them all myself!
