Make the Most of This Recipe With Tips From The Betty Crocker® Kitchens
How To
When grating peel from a lime, grate just the green part; the white part will be bitter.
Variation
You can make an easy flavor twist by using lemon peel for the lime peel, lemon juice for the lime juice and yellow decorating gel for the green.
Did You Know
Powdered sugar and cornstarch create the melt-in-your-mouth quality of these cookies.
Special Touch
If you like using a cookie press, make lime ribbon cookies. Prepare dough as directed, but do not shape it into balls. Place dough in a cookie press with a ribbon tip, and form long ribbons of dough on ungreased cookie sheet; cut ribbons into 3-inch lengths. Continue as directed for baking.
