Martha Stewart, I Love You.

No, it's not in the way you might think. I'm not going to ask her for her hand in marriage any time soon, she's not quite my type. I can just totally relate to her love of perfection and cooking and that's why I like her. I was home sick recently with a lovely flu/cold/I don't want to get up off the couch type sickness and was watching her show. She made Lime Meltaways. I needed something to make myself feel better so it seemed like the perfect thing-and it was! The recipe calls for dipping the cookies in powdered sugar after they have cooled, which is delicious. But for a slightly different twist and flavor I used my butter frosting recipe:

Butter Frosting

1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
3 tablespoons butter softened
1 1/2 tablespoons vanilla extract
1 tablespoon milk
2-3 drops food coloring (if needed)


Combine the confectioners' sugar, butter, vanilla and milk. Beat until creamy. If needed, thin with a few more drops of milk until you reach the desired consistency. Stir in optional food coloring. Spread frosting over cooled cookies.

Spring is upon us and this is the perfect cookie to celebrate with!
