My mom loved loved loved this recipe which is why it gets 4 stars instead of 3, but she thought there should be a stronger lime flavor.
I thought the cookie was average. There was probably too much butter (I followed the recipe exactly, except for when making the glaze). I can't point out an exact reason but these cookies weren't amazing, and lacked a distinctive lime flavor However, when I made the glaze I was sooo surprised how good it was. I started out following the recipe but ended up adding a lot more sugar (I used powdered sugar) until the color was almost opaque white. The lime flavor was still there though. The glaze really completed the cookie, so if you are looking to cut calories do it somewhere on the cookie, not on the glaze.
I don't have much experience with glaze so I wasn't sure if this one would harden but in the end it did, and I stacked them and wrapped them up for a bake sale. I think I would be okay to use granulated sugar instead of powdered since the sugar would dissolve anyways but I can't be sure since like I said I don't have much experience with glaze.
