"Really pretty, soft cookie with a just right taste of refreshing lime. The dough is very soft, so I chilled it until it became firm enough to work with. Made these for hubby's staff for St. Patrick's ..." See moreDay so I tinted the glaze green (made with powdered sugar and lime juice), and sprinkled them with green decorator sugar. They look as good as bakery cookies but taste SO much better!"
"These cookies are amazingly light and fluffy! I have not met any one who does not like them. Be careful when cooking them, they do not change color much. Thankfully, I have not managed to overcook ..." See morethem yet. For best results, let the glaze (lime juice and sugar) harden a little before storing the cookies. They stick together less, and the glaze is able to form a thin shell on top. One trick to apply the glaze is to dip the cookie into the glaze instead of dripping the glaze on the cookies."
"A great cookie for when your in the mood for a nice light treat with a cup of tea. Not an overly sweet cookie so it really allows the lime flavour to shine. Served mine without the glaze to save on ca..." See morelories ;) Would recommend using icing sugar to make the glaze with because it will disolved better than the granulated sugar will and also wait until the cookies are almost completely cooled before you glaze."
