A local shop sells Lime Cornbread cookies, and I looked on All Recipes hoping to find a recipe for something similar. This recipe comes very close (it's perhaps a little sweeter). Cornmeal cookies are a refreshing change from the usual choc chip or oatmeal, and the lime makes this particular recipe very special. These cookies are great for teatime, to accompany a light meal, or to go with all the lime/chili flavors of many Mexican meals. I'm going to experiment with decreasing the sugar a bit, but otherwise, these are fantastic.

These cookies are wonderful! The recipe sounds a bit strange, but I made them for my office & they were an absolute hit!! I can imagine that they would be a wonderful treat with fresh strawberries after a light fish or chicken dinner!!

We loved these cookies. I have baked them twice, the second time for two high school girlfriends who had come for tea. One took most home with her! I used vanilla extract instead of lime, and did not ice. They were buttery and crunchy and very good. Orange is another flavor I have seen cornmeal cookies associated with. I would say: Bake and enjoy!
