What types of cookies are your go-tos? What recipe do you reach for when you need cookies to take to a friends house? Or what do you like to keep in the freezer to snack on throughout the week? Does anyone love frozen cookies as much as I do?

My favorites are probably good old-fashioned chocolate chip or molasses crinkle cookies. Although my family is know to make and eat pumpkin cookies all year round. (Get excited for September, pumpkin cookies are coming!)

So I have my go to cookie recipes that I make half the time, and then the other half the time, I like to get creative with a new flavor or twist on a favorite cookie. These coconut lime sugar cookies came to life one day when I wanted something more than a sugar cookie and was craving tropical flavors. (It also helped that I had a stray lime sitting on my counter that day.)

I took a favorite sugar cookie recipe and added in some coconut oil and lime zest to give it some fun flavor. Then, once they were cooled I put a simple glaze with lime zest on top. Ta Da a perfect summer cookie! Although, I wouldn’t be sad to eat them anytime of year.

While I’m asking all about your favorite cookies, I might as well get your life’s cookie philosophy, so I’ll ask one more question. When you make a batch of cookies, what is the acceptable number of cookies you can eat warm from the oven? To me, it is 2-3, but I’ve definitely at more before. Tyler’s take on cookie eating is –  eat as many as you want from the oven, because that is when they are the best. After that, don’t even bother eating them.
