Ingredients

Cookies

Lime glaze

  • 2 1/4 cups confectioners' sugar or glazing sugar
  • 2 tablespoons light corn syrup
  • 1 tablespoon melted butter
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons water
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon lime oil, to taste
  • 3 to 4 drops green food coloring

Directions

1) In a medium-sized bowl, combine the butter, sugar, lime oil or zest, and salt, beating until smooth.

2) Beat in the eggs one at a time, scraping the bottom and sides of the bowl between additions.

3) Whisk together the baking powder, flour, and Hi-maize, sifting the mixture if it?s lumpy.

4) Mix the dry ingredients into the butter mixture in two additions, blending well after each addition.

5) Divide the dough in half, wrap in plastic, flatten into disks, and refrigerate for 2 hours, or overnight.

6) Remove the dough from the refrigerator, and preheat your oven to 350°F. If the dough has been refrigerated overnight, let it rest for 10 minutes or so, till pliable.

7) Roll the dough 1/8" thick on a lightly floured work surface.

8) Cut into desired shapes and transfer to ungreased or parchment-lined baking sheets.

9) Bake the cookies until they're slightly brown on the edges and feel firm, about 6 to 10 minutes depending on the cutter used and thickness of the cookies.

10) Remove from the oven, and let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for several minutes, or until set. Transfer to a rack to cool completely. Glaze cookies when cool.

11) To make the glaze: Whisk the sugar with the corn syrup, melted butter, and water. Gently stir in the lime oil and food coloring. Spread on cookies.

Yield: about 30 cookies, depending on size.

  • These cookies were delicious! I made them for Christmas and baked half the batch with the lime ingredients and the other half with lemon powder and lemon oil which are also available at KAF. They are so nice and full of citrus flavor! They come out tender and flaky with just a tiny bit of crispness to them which is how I like my roll out sugar cookies. Also, the icing recipe that followed was excellent as well. Definitely a keeper of a recipe. Maybe next time I'll combine the lemon and lime flavorings and see how that turns out.
