Spring Lime Tea Cookies Recipe
These are light, buttery tea cookies bursting with citrus flavor.
I wish the expected number of cookies were included in this recipe, also, I made more than the mentioned amount of glaze, stepping up to 1 cup of sugar, (I used confectioners sugar with the recipe did not specify) and as much lime juice as needed to make it work. I also added some lime zest to the glaze. Easy recipe, great cookies.
The cookies tasted pretty good, but the glaze never really set. The cookies were almost soggy the second day. Perhaps using a glaze made with powdered sugar and lime juice instead of granulated sugar may help.
These cookies were such a surprise hit that half were gone before they were cool enough to apply the glaze. I made one batch lime and then other orange by substituting orange rind and juice accordingly. Great light (and somewhat fragile) cookie. I definitely will make these again! thanks for the recipe.
First of all I made mine lemon as I didn't have any lime zest, but I cannot wait to make these little cookies with key lime juice and zest. They are light and fluffy. I simply dusted them with powdered sugar withing 5 mins of coming out of the oven. I would like a little more lemon flavor to them so I will add more zest next time I make these. Thanks for sharing. I love these cookies.
Overall a fantastic base recipe for any citrus light cake-like cookies! Go wild! Lemon, orange, lime, and all the different types and extracts! I opted for a more wintery orange cookie. I used a Cara Cara orange for the juice and rind. Seemed like a mellowy orange flavor. My alterations, I reduced the sugar like always, this time to a 1/2 c, increased the zest to 1 T, increased the baking soda to 1/2 t, subbed 1/2 c wheat flour for a little texture, added 1/2 t salt. For the glaze, I increased the juice a tad, added 1 T zest to it as well. I don't know if my glaze was more runny or not, but I prefered a looser glaze. I used a spoon to apply the glaze, put about a teaspoon in the spoon, then slowly circled it around the top of the cookie, allowing the glaze to slightly slide off the spoon onto the top of the cookie, continually moving the spoon in a circular motion. Be sure to let the cookies cool first before you put it on otherwise, depending on your glaze consistency, it will slide right off. If you
Very tasty, light, and fluffy. The cookie itself tastes like a sugar cookie (but not quite as sweet) with maybe a hint of lime. The glaze is what gives it the extra zing that I liked. Almost too fluffy in that it crumbles easily. The basic recipe is good, but I would prefer the cookie crisper, and will try to modify it some next time to do so.
We loved these cookies...so light and refreshing..thanks!
These cookies are fresh and delicious. They pair wonderfully with a hot cup of tea!
