Luscious Lime Cookies

Luscious Lime Cookies

Lovely, luscious lime cookies are perfect for you citrus lovers. Coat them in lime-scented sugar, as pictured, for the biggest lime flavor; for a milder, sweeter cookie, add white chocolate chips, or a slather of white chocolate icing.

Ingredients

Cookies

* Reduce salt to 1/4 teaspoon if you're using salted butter.

Topping



Instructions

  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Mix together the butter, sugar, lime powder, lime oil, and salt; there's no need to beat at high speed, just mix together.
  3. Mix in the flour. Cover the dough, and refrigerate for about 1 hour, or as long as overnight.
  4. Just before baking, preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
  5. Remove the dough from the fridge, and scoop teaspoonsful onto the baking sheet, 1 1/2 inches apart.
  6. Bake the cookies for 12 to 14 minutes, until set and lightly brown around the edges.
  7. Remove from the oven, and let cool for 10 minutes.
  8. Mix the topping ingredients, and put in a 1-gallon zip-top bag.
  9. Add 5 or 6 warm cookies at a time, and shake gently till they're coated. The sugar may get a bit sticky; that's OK.
  10. Transfer the cookies to a rack to cool, then coat the completely cooled cookies in the sugar again.
