Light and refreshing! These are a nice balance of tart, sweet, crispy and chewy. I did make a few changes based partly on the other reviews and partly to make the cookies a smidge healthier :) I used 2 cups of flour (1 cup white, 1 cup white whole wheat). I also used 2 tbsp butter w/4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil in place of the 1/2 cup butter. (I had lemon flavored olive oil on hand so used 2tbsp of that and 2 tbsp unflavored.) Instead of the 1 cup of sugar, I used 2/3 cup sugar with Truvia as a substitute for the other 1/3 cup. I added 1/2 cup of white chocolate chips and skipped the powdered sugar on top. I think the sugar would be great, or maybe a powdered sugar w/lime glaze or cream cheese w/lime juice frosting. It is a cake-like batter, but I easily used two teaspoons to drop these on a cookie sheet. I don't have a pastry bag, but I think using one would give these a pretty shape.
