Directions

  1. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; stir into the creamed mixture until well blended. Cover or wrap dough, and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. If you are in a big hurry, freeze for a half hour.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out to 1/4 inch in thickness. Cut into desired shapes with cookie cutters. Place cookies 1 1/2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets.
  3. Bake for 7 to 8 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
  4. For the frosting: In a medium bowl, beat the lime juice, milk, confectioners' sugar and green food color until smooth and creamy. Add more milk or sugar if necessary to achieve a good spreading consistency. When cookies are completely cool, spread icing between cookies to make sandwiches.

Good cookies and very pretty, but the glaze was difficult to get to the correct consistency. I added almost double the powdered sugar to prevent it from flooding right over the cookie edge. Also, adding a drop of green food coloring to the glaze makes the cookies much more picturesque.

I really enjoyed these cookies. They were indeed very tasty. I have made them as lime cokoies, but also made a lemon icing, and used lemon/lime peel in the dough for an extra kick. When my husband was deployed to the desert, I sent him these, they traveled great! It took about two weeks to reach him, but they maintained their chewy softness. And the men LOVED them. Thanks for the recipe.

Yummy, but I expected the lime to be stronger. They tasted like regular sugar cookies to me. I added a few drops of green food coloring to the dough as well, and used Christmas tree cookie cutters. You definitely have to add more powdered sugar or the glaze will be too runny to spread. A tasty treat, thanks!

You could not really taste the lime-I even doubled it, then added a splash of lemon, still couldn't taste it very well. I even tried a whole different recipe for the middle, using butter/powdered sugar/milk/lime. I don't think the cookie & the icing worked together at all. Plus, it makes a TON of cookies-I had 2 FULL gallon size ziploc bags of cookies when done. I only iced & put together about 1/3 & am stuck w/the rest of the cookies.
