Lemon Cookie Truffles

A springtime twist on the overnight classic of Oreo Cookie balls. So simple and so easy, even the kdis can make these.

I love that they travel well and are a breeze to make. I have so much fun playing around with one basic recipe and making a few variations, depending on the season and flavors I'm craving, this one is a huge hit, especially with lemon lovers.
