Why I Love This Recipe

I just made 12 dozen for a wedding. A big hit at the office too.

Ingredients You'll Need

2 ½ cups flour
¼ tsp. baking powder
¼ tsp. salt
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
1 cup sugar
2 egg yolks
1 tsp. vanilla
2 Tbsp. grated lime rind
2 Tbsp. lime juice


Combine flour, baking powder and salt; set aside. With electric mixer, beat butter and sugar until fluffy; beat in egg yolks and vanilla.

Gradually beat in flour mixture.

Add grated lime rind and lime juice stirring well.

Preheat oven to 375º.

Shape dough into 48 balls, using 1 tablespoon dough for each.

In a small bowl, combine 1 tablespoon grated lime rind and ½ cup sugar, working rind into the sugar with the back of a spoon until well blended.

Roll balls in sugar mixture and place 1 inch apart on parchment lined baking sheets.

Bake until edges are lightly browned, 12 minutes. Cool on wire racks.

Makes 4 dozen cookies.
