Limesicle cookies

in Sweet Things

It’s citrus season, and oh how I do enjoy all the lovely citrus fruits. One great thing about the United States is we get such wonderful fruit year round, even in the middle of the country where I am. Citrus adds such a nice flavor to sweet dishes and savory as well, it’s something I really cant get enough of. Limes are wonderful but usually you don’t see cookies made with limes, that is why I decided I needed to try it. I received some special limes called finger limes from Shanely Farms a few months back and I posted a recipe called lime pudding cake {it’s really tasty} where I explain about finger limes. The cookies I made for you today are a little zingy but the sweetness from the white chocolate chips keeps them in balance. Shanely Farms is a wonderful place to get these finger limes and they will ship them right to you since finger limes are so new to the culinary world. I highly recommend you give these new limes a try, but even if you can’t find them just use extra zest from the regular limes and you will enjoy these bright tasting cookies.

I’m so sad I don’t have one of these cookies right now….but, I’m happy for you and everyone who had the pleasure of tasting a few of these beauties-love the lime and white chocolate;-)

OK..the minute I saw these I wanted to make them. Not only because they look extraordinary, but just the name ‘Limesicle Cookies’ is enough to dominate my thoughts for at least 24 hours, or until I briefly calm my sweet tooth. I might order the oil, but I’m thinking the lime zest and juice will still give it plenty of lime flavor. Yes, I’m in lust with these. Happy New Year to you and yours! 😀

Oooooooohhhhhh…I want some of these now – and it’s 2 am here! Is that so bad? I like the sweet and tart combination of white chocolate and lime. I think it’s the best way to make limesicle flavor!

Hello Suzanne! It looks like you’ve been making something very yummy! Those finger limes are so cute. I love sugar cookies but have never thought of adding lime, what a great idea!
