Key Lime Cookies

Submitted by: SHARONROBERTS07

Introduction

Delious lime taste. Delious lime taste.
Number of Servings: 45

Ingredients

    •1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
    •1-1/4 cups sugar
    •1 egg plus 1 egg yolk
    •1/4 cup Key lime or other lime juice
    •2 teaspoons lime zest (grated peel)
    •2 cups all-purpose flour
    •1 teaspoon baking powder
    •1/2 teaspoon salt
    •Confectioners' sugar

Tips

Make sure the dough is good and chilled. I use a medium scoop to make the balls. Do not bake too long or the cookie will be crips. They flatten very nicely to a round circle.


Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
2. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until fluffy. Add egg and egg yolk, beating until creamy. Beat in lime juice and zest just until combined.
3. Stir in flour, baking powder, and salt; mix well. Refrigerate dough 60 minutes, until firm.
4. Shape dough into 1-inch balls and place 1 inch apart on cookie sheets.
5. Bake 10 to 12 minutes, or until light golden. Transfer to wire rack. While still warm, pour confectioners' sugar into a hand strainer over cookies, and dust cookies lightly.


Serving Size: Makes approx. 50 cookies. Each serving is one cookie dusted with confectioner's sugar

Number of Servings: 45
