Lemon And Chamomile Crinkle Cookies

I’m a bit ashamed at myself, this whole winter season I haven’t made tea, I love tea its very soothing and very calming to have in the evenings I think and I’ve been neglecting my various Unused Herbal tea but honestly, as much as I love tea I dont have it alot and I just need to get into that mind set of having more tea, especially in the evenings when its cold out and I am bundled up in my sweater and sweatpants watching my favorite tv shows with my husband. I think that I also should use my herbal tea to infuse some unique flavors to my baking as well and well this is what I came up with. I had my mother in Law and my sister in law in mind when I created this recipe, these Lemon and Chamomile cookies are everything what a tea cookies should be, sweet, delicious with a hint of a unique flavor that comes from well Tea hahaha!!!! and a slight freshness from juice and zest of lemons just gives these wonderful cookies a bright flavor the compliments the Chamomile well and good with a side of Tea, just between you and me I Imagine my mother in law and sister in Law ( Ilona & Mary) Having tea and reading their favorite books  outside their patio and having a bite and just taking it all in, the deliciousness just the feeling of calmness when your having tea and having a relaxing day of taking it easy. Tell me thats weird, is it weird that I imagine that when I bake and create for other people? I Guess Im just a visual person and I’ve always have, anyway I apologize that its taken me long to post new recipes in my blog but I have more coming, at least I have this jewel of a cookie to tie you guys over and I promise you there will be more new and delicious recipes coming in 2015.
