I love everything about Spring. I love the flowers, I love the greens everywhere, I love pastel colours, I love all the baby animals and I love being able to venture outside for long walks without trudging through the rain. I also love being able to hang my washing up outside rather than having a kitchen full of clothes dryers!
It also gives us more room to bake in our pokey little flat.
The icing on these shortbread biscuits is seriously amazing!
We use lime and lemon juices to give it a wonderfully refreshing flavour, and of course a drop of green food colouring to give it that spring look.
The lime juice was actually left over juice from a lime we had spare after making our super tasty toddler proof smoothies as well as the juice from half a lemon.
