Lime & White Chocolate Sandwich Cookies

Lime & White Chocolate Sandwich Cookies

I’m not a crier.

I’m not big on feelings in general- but especially crying.

Which is actually quite ironic because on camera I can cry at the drop of a hat- which the writers on #Freakish (coming soon to Hulu) loved

I cried for 4 episodes straight. I’m not kidding. In every scene in episodes 7, 8, 9 and 10- I am in hysterics.

Maybe that’s why in my everyday life I never get choked up, my tears refuse to show without an appearance fee.

Which is why it’s such a big deal that I cried this week. Nobody died, I didn’t watch Marley & Me, and I didn’t break a bone.

Wanna know why I was in full blown hysterics?

I couldn’t get the gifs I had made for this post to animate.

Yep. Dramatic I know.

In my defense I had spent over 5 hours reading every help manual and forum trying to diagnose the issue and I was at an ultimate low point.

I was yelling at my computer like a cheating boyfriend and the only reason I didn’t’ throw my computer through the window was because it’s too heavy.

Technology is both the most amazing asset to our generation, and simultaneously the source of so much frustration, anger and annoyance.

Now as you school through this post you’ll see those gifs movin’ as they do- you’ll realize I did eventually figure it out.

Moral of the story?

Enjoy those damn gifs.

& enjoy these white chocolate lime shortbread hearts ♡

    These look incredible and delicious! Lime and white chocolate go so well together so it’s nice to have another recipe to use that combine those ingredients!
