A local shop sells Lime Cornbread cookies, and I looked on All Recipes hoping to find a recipe for something similar. This recipe comes very close (it's perhaps a little sweeter). Cornmeal cookies are a refreshing change from the usual choc chip or oatmeal, and the lime makes this particular recipe very special. These cookies are great for teatime, to accompany a light meal, or to go with all the lime/chili flavors of many Mexican meals. I'm going to experiment with decreasing the sugar a bit, but otherwise, these are fantastic.
I used 1 T of lime extract in the cookie as the dough didn't taste like lime at all. I didn't have lime peel, so just used lime juice. Don't do it! My cookies hardly had any lime taste at all. I thought the cookies were too sweet. One T of lime juice to the confectioners sugar amount was way too runny. I don't like to select stars when I didn't follow a recipe exactly, but can't get around it.
These cookies are wonderful! The recipe sounds a bit strange, but I made them for my office & they were an absolute hit!! I can imagine that they would be a wonderful treat with fresh strawberries after a light fish or chicken dinner!!
We loved these cookies. I have baked them twice, the second time for two high school girlfriends who had come for tea. One took most home with her! I used vanilla extract instead of lime, and did not ice. They were buttery and crunchy and very good. Orange is another flavor I have seen cornmeal cookies associated with. I would say: Bake and enjoy!
Very good, tasty cookies. I did tweak it a bit after reading the other reviews. I used 1/2 whole wheat flour, 1/2 white, and decreased both butter and sugar a bit. I also used lime juice instead of extract. Very light tasty cookies, I will be making these again.
These came out amazing! I used whole wheat flour and I wanted more lime flavor, so I used the juice and zest of half a lime, added a tsp of vanilla extract and they came out perfect! They are very delicate and I love the texture.
Really really great flavor! I used fresh ground cornmeal and a 1/4 teaspoon of lime oil, rather than extract. For some reason, the second sheet of cookies ran and spread much more than the first, and were very crumbly. Perhaps I should have chilled the dough? These would probably make fantastic "log" cookies if you made the dough into two logs and chilled them in waxed paper, then sliced and sugared.
Had the taste and consistency of sweet cornbread with the perfect hint of lime, which I actually enjoyed. I did, however, make a few alterations: 1) I used one lime's worth of juice and zest instead of lime extract in the batter, 2) I used half wheat flour, half all purpose to add some additional texture and flavor, 3) I omitted the icing all together as it sounded too sweet for my taste.
