Nothing says Spring better than Lime Soft Cookies. I think lime pairs perfectly with a sugar cookie because that cool citrus flavor adds that little something extra to the traditional sweetness of the cookie.
These lime soft cookies are light and buttery and full of lime flavor. You’ll have a hard time not eating the whole batch yourself. I love to make them for Spring parties and teas because they are light and little unusual.
The lime glaze is optional of course but I would definitely recommend adding it. This just gives the cookies that extra lime flavor and they just melt in your mouth. To really make them over-the-top you could use key limes, when in season.
- 2 teaspoons Lime Juice
- ⅓ cup Milk
- ½ cup Butter
- ¾ Sugar
- 1 Egg
- 1 ¾ cups All Purpose Flour
- 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
- ¼ teaspoon Baking Soda
- 1 Tablespoon Lime Juice
- 1 ½ to 2 cups Powdered Sugar
- In a small bowl, mix together the lime juice and milk and set aside to curdle. In a large bowl, mix the butter and sugar. Add in the lime juice mixture and mix well.
- Add in the egg, flour, baking powder, and baking soda. Mix until the batter is a smooth consistency.
- Drop by teaspoonful onto a greased cookie sheet and bake for 8 minutes at 350 degrees or until the cookies begin to brown slightly. Remove from the oven and let the cookies cool before glazing.
- To make the glaze, mix the lime juice and powdered sugar together in a small bowl. Drizzle over the cooled cookies and enjoy!
