Holiday Lime Cooler Cookies (Cookie Exchange Quantity)
Yum...these remind me of Key Lime pie. So far everyone in my family has liked them. Here are my recipe notes: 1. It takes two limes to get enough lime zest. Don't zest the white part or your recipe could have a bitter aftertaste. 2. When sqishing the cookies, tap them flat, instead of trying to flatten them in one squish. This prevents them from sticking to the glass and the edges from cracking. 3. Baked on parchment. After pulling out of the oven, slip the parchment off the cookie sheet to a flat surface and let the cookies cool. 4. I used 2.5 batches of glaze for this large batch of cookies. Two limes gave me ample juice for the glaze. 5. Stack nicely without the gel. Added one drop of green food coloring a batch of glaze. Considering adding a drop of yellow next time to make it more lime green in color. 6. Only broke a couple, and I think those were a little overdone. 9 minutes is enough. 7. The lime zest was the toughest part...after that, it went quick and I love how the dough beat up in my mixer. A nice smooth dough. 8. Since I know it is in there, I think I can taste the cornstarch in the dough, but I guess it tastes like all other shortbread I have had...but I still think I taste cornstarch. I am excited to hear what my friend who went to culinary school thinks of this cookie.
