This month for the Leftover Club I was paired with Sandra from Meadows Cooks Healthy Recipes. She made some cute little Brown Butter Oatmeal cookies. I am going to have to make these at home soon! I can’t imagine how delish they would be right out of the oven.

I was having a hard time deciding what to make this month and was talking with my coworker about it at lunch yesterday. She asked what my mom used to make around Easter. I remembered these delicious cookies that we always had at the beginning of spring – Mint Chip Meringue Cookies. The recipe is a little temperamental and mine are not as pretty as my mom’s, but they are tasty. The outside has a nice crunch while the inside is really soft. Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset

I have really enjoyed being part of the Leftover Club because it pushes me to try new things in the kitchen. If you would like to be part of the club, visit www.theleftoversclub.com for more info.
