Arnold Palmer Cookies

 

These lovely cookies are named after the non-alcoholic drink that was named after the famous pro golfer. In the south, we know them as half and halfs. 

The typical Arnold Palmer drink is half lemonade and half iced tea. These cookies carry that tradition with half being lemon flavored and using real tea leaves to flavor the tea half.

When choosing tea leaves, please consider looking for a brand that doesn’t use pesticides in their fields. If it doesn’t matter to you then feel free to use whatever brand you like. I just snipped open four packets of Red Rose tea bags and rubbed the leaves to ensure the ground was small enough.

These are a fun cookie to make and share. They are also so addictive as well. I’m eating one as I type.
