This recipe was a hit and miss. I gotten a little worried when it requested to mix milk and lime juice, which can curdle the milk. It made the egg mixture a little unpleasant but it gotten better when I added dry ingredients. I had to slightly alter the recipe by adding a little more lime, salt, and some lemon to lift the lime flavor a bit. After I baked it and cooled, the cookie was more of a cake texture. It was spongey and somewhat a little too soft. I had to bake it almost 10 minutes longer because it could fall apart easily. It was a lot better when I baked it longer. Then when I sampled a bite, it had a very thin crunch then a soft center. It was pleasant but it was missing something. I topped it which two coats of lime glaze. I replaced sugar with icing sugar just to give it a better consistency. The glaze is pretty much the important part of the recipe, can't really do without it. I feel this cookie was more of a 'melt-in-your-mouth margarita cookie'.
I don't think I would make this cookie again because it took more time out of my hands than listed and I had to alter the recipe to make it better. The cookie was a little too light like a cake, as I prefer it to be a little more dense like a real cookie.
