Mexican cookies dipped in a creamy lime sauce are layered with fruit cocktail and topped with peaches in this easy dessert. Let it rest overnight in the refrigerator before serving.

I would use the key lime size for this. I think regular limes would produce too much juice.

I would also use key limes if you can find them. I believe(don't quote me) that Mexican lime is another name for a Key lime and since this is supposedly a traditional Mexican cookie, I'm making an assumption (yep, that's right) :)

I would be more apt to take it literally and use smallish limes. Looking at the amount of other ingredients, it seems like it would be the right amount. I wouldn't squeeze them to oblivion ;P

A small key lime is about like a golf ball. Regular limes are larger. I'd use what you have. And it sounds wonderful!

LOL! I'm at the store and have both in front of me! Decided on the bagged key limes, because they are half the cost! [As are the loose regular sized limes!] I hope it's good! I'm making to share with my foodie friends (=
