Lime and sugar are a match made in flavor heaven! They fight it out amongst themselves in these soft, tender cookies.
But let’s face it, no matter who dominates, it’s a win-win situation all the way around!
The sharp bite of lime is followed by sweetness rushing in so neither one overwhelms. It’s a perfect balance with a melt-in-your mouth quality that is unforgettable.
The punchy lime in the cookie is furthered even more by the lime icing, a finishing touch that makes them perfect for an afternoon tea party or brunch.
A white chocolate icing would be delectable too!
The recipe is simple and easy, too easy. I highly recommend making a double batch as they don’t make a lot plus are small in size. Not to mention how utterly addicting they can be. Most will be eaten before the icing has time to set. Or if you’re a raw dough eater lover like me before they even have a chance to bake!
