Key Lime Pie Cupcakes

I bake over 200 of these cupcakes for our church suppers, and we always run out. If you can't find Key lime juice, use lime juice. Just add a tad more sugar. —Julie Herrera-Lemler, Rochester, Minnesota

Meet the Cook: My sister was hosting an exchange student from Finland not long ago. When she served a plate of these cookies I'd made to her guest, the young lady instantly recognized what they were. So I know they're still being made in our ancestors' country! Both my husband and I are retired teachers, living on the shore of Lake Superior. We have one grown son. -Ilona Barron, Ontonagon, Michigan

This pie recipe is one I clipped years ago that became a big hit with my husband and three daughters. I've been baking since I was 9 years old. Back then, my friends and I would get together on Saturdays to bake chocolate chip cookies...but we liked the dough so much we ate lots of it raw! Of all the cooking I do today, I think I still enjoy baking best.

If you like the flavor of licorice, you'll love these crispy cookies. When our six children were young, I often made them for lunches or after-school snacks. Flattening the dough logs with a fork gives them a pretty look. Once they're baked, it's a breeze to cut them into strips.
