Tasty cookie! I didn't put lime juice in glaze, but it still had a great taste. Cookie good anytime, not just at Christmas!

I subbed in lemon juice and lemon zest for the lime and these were absolutely delicious. I made them for Thanksgiving day, but my family liked them so much they kept eating them before the holiday!
