Ingredients

  • Cookies:

  • 1/2

    cup butter

  • 1/2

    cup confectioners sugar

  • 1/2

    tsp pure vanilla extract

  • 1/8

    tsp salt

  • 2

    tsp key lime zest

  • 1

    cup all-purpose flour

  • 1/2

    tsp baking powder

  • 1 1/2

    tbsp key lime juice

  • For Dusting:

  • 1/2

    cup confectioners sugar

  • 2

    tsp key lime zest

Directions

Preheat oven to 325. In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar with an electric mixer. Add the vanilla, salt, and lime zest. Then add the flour and baking powder and mix only until a rough dough forms. Do not over-mix. Add the lime juice and mix until a smooth dough comes together. Again, do not over-mix. Roll the dough into balls about 1 inch in diameter. Please on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for 15 to 20 minutes. Cookies are done when bottom are slightly browned. Cookies will be fragile. To finish, mix 1/2 cup confectioners sugar with the 2 tsp of lime zest in a shallow bowl. While cookies are still warm, gently roll them, one at a time in the sugar/lime mixture. After all cookies are coated, finish by sprinkling an remaining sugar/lime mixture over tops. Stored cooled cookies in an airtight container. They also freeze really well in freezer bags.
