Why I Love This Recipe

Ingredients You'll Need

1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
1 egg yolk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 teaspoons Key lime juice
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt

Key Lime Icing:
3/4 cup confectioners' sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons Key lime juice


Butter Cookies: Cream together the butter and sugar until light and

fluffy, about 3 minutes, scraping the bowl down as needed. Add the

egg yolk, then the vanilla extract and 1 1/2 teaspoons Key lime

juice. Lastly, blend in the flour.

Transfer the dough to a large piece of plastic wrap and form into a

cylinder that is 2 1/4 inches in diameter. Refrigerate for 2 hours or


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Butter 2 large baking sheets and

set aside.

Cut the cookies into 1/4-inch slices. Place the slices on the baking

sheets and bake at 350 degrees F for 8 to 10 minutes. Place the

baking sheets onto a cooling rack and cool for 5 minutes. Transfer

the cookies to the cooling rack.

For the key lime icing: Combine the confectioners' sugar and 1 1/2

tablespoons Key lime juice in a small bowl. Brush the tops of the

cookies with the icing as soon as the cookies are transferred off the

baking sheets.
