i hate christmas-christmas cookies!

This year, i have the time and the lack of funds to make gifts for everyone on my list and so what better than the gift of cookies. Simple, delicious AND bonus: they make the house smell heavenly. I had a whole bunch of limes left over from my Holidays Soiree and so I thought that I would put them to use with this cookie recipe:

Ingredients List:

  • 1 cup unsalted butter-soft
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp of Vanilla
  • the juice from 3 limes
  • 2 tbsps of lime zest
  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp of baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 bag of white chocolate chips

The result is light, fluffy and simple…*makes about 8 dozen small cookies

These cookies are very subtle and light tasting. It’s a little misleading (i mean a whole bag of white chocolate chips seems insanely sweet) but the lime juice cuts the sweetness of the white chocolate. If i decide to make more of these bad boys, i think i will add some dried cranberries to the mix.


If you decide to venture let me know how it turns out.

 

I’m off to finish packaging my treats and to start delivering.


Eat well

Be Happy

Laugh loudly
