Sound crazy?? Well avocado and lime are like the creamy and tangy in any successful tea cookie combo. Add in the creaminess of the cashews, sweetness of the powdered sugar, and sea salt to draw out the “dulce” and you’ve got a fluffy, light and unique treat. You’ll be surprised at how it rivals your favorite handheld desserts!
