Lime Christmas Tea Cookies
Total TimePrep: 1 hour + chilling Bake: 10 min./batch + cooling
Makesabout 4 dozen
This cookie on it's own (without icing) tastes terrible. Seriously bad cookie. It was nightmare dough to work with (very dry and cracked). When it baked, a bunch of cookies broke (I'm guessing because of the cracked, dry dough I had to work with) and I followed this recipe very closely. Note: I LOVE lime. The flavours should have worked well for my taste - and they didn't.I normally try to stick to making recipes where there are many more reviews than just 2 reviews and this is a great example of why!!!I'm going to now make the icing to see if it will salvage this horrible cookie. If it does, I will come back here and let you know. If you don't see another review from me.. that means it didn't salvage the cookie and this cookie is unredeemable.I made the icing. It didn't taste any better.The next day however, the cookie was less bitter and the icing seemed to have evened out the bitter taste and it didn't taste quite as bad. I still wouldn't call this a good cookie. It's less than average.
I tried the icing.. it still tastes terrible. What a bad cookie.
I just made these cookies a few hours ago, and they were delish! The tanginess is very unique and the cookie in combination with the frosting is very refreshing. Will definitely make these again.
I discovered this recipe a week before Halloween. I used bat and witch cookie cutters and my adult kids loved them. They love the tang and said they seem to get a little tangier after a few days. If you like limes, you will love this cookie
