Key Lime Cookies II Recipe

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons key lime juice
  • 2 teaspoons grated lime zest
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups crushed cornflake crumbs
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a medium bowl, cream together the butter and confectioners' sugar until smooth. Mix in the egg, lime juice and lime zest. Mixture may appear curdled, but that's okay. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; stir into the lime mixture until well blended. Drop batter by teaspoonfuls into the cornflake crumbs. Place cookies 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets.
  3. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven, until edges are golden. Remove from cookie sheets to cool on wire racks.
