Great recipe! I followed it exactly for the ingredients. But I refrigerated the dough (way too sticky) for 1 hour and was able to drop spoonfulls easily but it was a bit sticky. After 4 hours of refrigeration I found I could roll balls. Interestingly, the cookies ended up the same either way, both in size and texture. Oh, I also made larger (1 inch balls) and cooked those for 15-17 minutes on a later batch. I will definitely make this recipe again. I brought them into work and they disappeared in a short time. I'm thinking it would work well with oranges. I'll try that next time.

After finding & reading the reviews, I decided to change the lime juice to real key lime juice, plus I added 4 drops lime oil, along with the zest. My dough was also to soft so I added another 1/2 cup of flour. After the first batch cooled for less than one minute, I placed them in a large ziplock with a cup of powdered sugar and shook it very easy, coating the entire cookie with the powdered sugar.

Use key lime juice. For those who are having problems with stickiness, just use a cookie scoop (like a small ice cream scoop). That way the dough never has to touch your hands. Don't add more flour - that would diminish the flavor. This cookie is very cake-like, just so you know.
