fresh lime cookies
I guess it's cookie week over here! These are not your average cookies, they taste so bright thanks to all the fresh squeezed lime juice. You're going to want to make these all summer long!
- 1½ cups all-purpose flour
- ½ tsp baking soda
- ½ tsp salt
- ½ cup butter, room temperature
- ¼ cup granulated sugar
- ¼ cup brown sugar
- 1 egg
- ½ tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp lime zest and 3 Tbsp lime juice
- 1 cup white chocolate chips
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 1 tsp lime zest
- 1½ to 3 Tbsp lime juice, depending on desired consistency
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
- In a bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and salt; set aside.
- Cream together the butter and sugars. Beat in the egg, vanilla, lime zest, and lime juice until smooth (don't worry if it looks a scary and gloopy at this point)
- Slowly add flour mixture until combined. Fold in white chocolate chips.
- Drop rounded spoonfuls onto a parchment or silpat lined baking sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown around edges. Err on the side of under-baking. Cool for several minutes on cookie sheets before transferring to a rack to cool completely.
- Prepare glaze by combining powdered sugar and lime zest in a bowl. Add lime juice until desired consistency. Spoon glaze over the top of the cookies and allow to set at room temperature until dry.
