    We’re calling it: This citrusy spin on timeless shortbread is a new classic! With the buttery dough and double dose of lemon—there’s zest in the dough and lemon juice in the icing—these lemon meltaways really live up to their name. And just like classic shortbread, they’re made with a short ingredient list. So don’t be deceived by their impressive looks, these cookies are totally doable. One tip though, don’t skip tossing them in powdered sugar for the second time—doing so adds to their magical, melt-in-your-mouth tenderness. Give them a try and let us know if you think they’re worthy of a permanent spot in your recipe box.

    When you’ve got fresh fruit on hand, there’s no dessert quite like a crumble and this one is extra special. With its sugar cookie crust, peach preserves and tart fresh raspberries, it’s as sweet as summer itself and with a look to match. Jewel-bright preserves and fresh raspberries shine through the cookie crumbles, giving these bars an impressive look. So much so, that no one will guess they only took 15 minutes to prepare! The secret to the quick prep time is that Betty’s sugar cookie mix cuts down on ingredients and measuring, while still baking up into a delectable crumbly crust, which pairs perfectly with peach melba—a time-tested combination of peach and raspberry. So, you can turn your fresh fruit into a party-perfect dessert that serves 16, all without breaking a sweat!
