Summer is a perfect time for picnics, and picnics call for food you can pack up and take with you. If you’re going to be out and about, you all need something that doesn’t crumble easily and travels well.
Here are some of the best cookies to serve in the summer.
Citrus cookies are a perfect choice for summer cookies. Their flavor is refreshing and the perfect antidote for hot summer days. Try lemon bars, lemon coolers, lime meltaways, lemon sandwich cookies, or brownies frosted with orange ganache.
Peanut butter cookies are a good choice for summer cookies. The peanut butter helps the cookies stay moist, and they have a dense, chewy texture that holds up well when being carried from one place to another.
Cookies that take advantage of the abundance of summer fruit are a natural. Try cookies filled with homemade strawberry jam, or blackberry crumb bars.
For a lighter touch, try blondies instead of brownies. These feature the wonderful flavor of browned sugar, a caramel like flavor. If you have never tried a blondie, you are sure to enjoy them, and they make a refreshing change from the more familiar brownie.
Another popular summer treat are no bake cookies. Cereal treats made with melted marshmallows are always a hit with kids. Choose different types of cereals for variety. No bake cookies made with oatmeal, cocoa and peanut butter are a classic in your author’s house, no matter what the season.
