Our office organizes a volleyball tournament in July and my team's name is COOkies, so I thought it would be nice to bake some cookies to bring for the colleagues. But in my mind, summer and cookies don't get along - for me cookies are a fall/winter food. I can see summer pies, but cookies?
So I would like to ask you, what are your favourite summer cookies? Or cookies that remind you of summer? It's going to be very warm so nothing with chocolate chips or it will be a mess.
Any ideas?

Thank you!

For me cookies are such a summer thing! I dont know if it comes from baking for summer fetes each year.

Cut out shaped sugar cookies are good - you can get cutters in whatever shape you like and the are summery ones. My mum has ice cream cone shaped ones. I always ice with water icing but I don't know if that'll be any good with the heat.

Pinwheel cookies are good for a bit of summery colour too - make one dough regular and another add in some bright food colouring. Roll them both into squares, put on top of each other and wheel them up. You could be adventurous and make them rainbow coloured if you like.

Ah, great ideas! I hadn't thought of colored cookies!

I think something like the Grapefruit Ice Box Cookies from VCIYCJ or the Cool Lemon Cookies from Vegan Food Gifts are kind of summery. Really though, all cookies are good any time of year, always.

I always go with citrus/lemon cookies for summer. The citrus glitters in VCIYCJ are quite good.

I like the iced lemon cookies in IDI very, very much.

I vote for the lemon cookies in IDI, as well as the citrus glitters and key lime shortbreads in VCIYCJ. The grapefruit ones were good but I'm not a fan of grapefruit, I'd make them again with lemon or lime.

Thank you all! These are super suggestions! I'll try the lemon cookies from IDI as I love lemon.

Yes! Lemon anything is wonderful, especially for summer! (In fact, I might have to make a batch of those cookies now.)

The recipe as copied here calls for "24 1/2 cups all-purpose flour," which is either a helluva typo or a recipe for disaster!

Holy shiitake I didn't even notice that! It's definitely supposed to be 2 1/2 cups (I checked the book). That'll teach me to link a recipe without checking it first!

That sounds great! I always have a craptonne of mint because once upon a time I planted an herb garden, which I happily filled with lovely things like thyme, basil, lavender, lemon balm, rosemary, etc. Then I added mint (being ignorant of Certain Important Facts, to wit: it destroys everything in its path), and ever since I have had a righteous mint garden. Mojitos, anyone?

the two of us seriously ate the entire batch in less than 2 days. i'm generally not a cakey cookie person, but these were delightful!

This is a really nice risotto (which I should make again now that the mint is coming in).

Min chocolate chip cookies from the cookie book. Delicious.
