"Basic thumbprint cookie. Very pretty, easy, and somewhat different flavor. Lovely on a tray with other Christmas cookies. These do not keep well, but neither do they last long. I frequently double this recipe, or else they are gone before I have them all baked." — Terre

grated lime zest
green food coloring, or as desired

The filling for this cookie is delicous. I will bake them again. But I must mention this recipe does not make 36 cookies, you get about 16 if you follow the directions. I recommend you double the cookie dough and keep the filling the same amount as stated. It turns out just right.
The filling was tasty, but the cookie dough came out hard and tasteless. I had to add water to the dough to keep it from crumbling. I would probably not make these again.
Loved this recipe!! i agree it makes about 12-16 cookie but they are delicious i added more lime just because my husband and i love lime! deff easy try them!! :) thank you
These are tasty and very pretty little cookies. I stress "little" because I believe their is a mistake in this recipe. It instructs the baker to use 2 TBSP of dough for each cookie. Those would be huge cookies, and come nowhere near the 36 servings indicated as other reviewers have mentioned. 2 tsp. is more like it. This amount of dough made 30 cookies, and each was filled nicely with the filling. I half expected the filling to spill over when baked, but it didn't. I did use just one drop of food coloring and the color was just right. I am a little puzzled about the name of these as there is really nothing creamy about them. These would be a nice green dessert for St. Patrick's Day, especially with a bit of green color added to the dough.
Had some leftover limes and went looking for recipes. I'm not much of a cookie lover but the idea of lime cookies intrigued me. These really pleased me. Tasty dough, the lime taste is a good counterpoint, they're pretty, and, best of all, fast. Thanks, Terre!
Pretty tasty cookies that are easy to make. I doubled the recipe and it made about 30 cookies. The cookie part could have been a bit moister but overall they are quite good.

Use fresh key lime juice if you can, as it adds the biggest flavor.
