Key Lime Cookies with White Chocolate Chips

It has felt like ages since I last baked some cookies. I have a feeling it’s the Summer heat, who wants to turn their oven on with these high temperatures? Well, the cookies aren’t going to bake themselves, so it has to be done!

If I was going to be baking, they weren’t going to be heavy and chocolatey. I wanted to experiment with a lighter, zestier cookie. Hmm, what do we have here? Some limes hanging out, these will do. What could possibly go well with limes? Hopefully white chocolate because that’s what I had and it sounded like it could be an interesting mix. ๐Ÿ™‚
Lime Cookies

Ingredients:
• 1/2 cup butter
• 1 cup white sugar
• 2 eggs
• 1 3/4 cup flour
• 1 tsp baking powder
• 1/2 tsp salt
• Zest and Juice from 2 limes
• 1 cup of white chocolate chips

Start off by preheating the oven to 350F.

Cream the butter and sugar together.

Add in the eggs, zest and juice. Mix well.

In a separate bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder and salt.

Slowly add the dry ingredients into the lime mixture, until all is smooth and well blended.

Mix in the white chocolate chips.

I placed my cookie dough in the freezer for about 20 minutes, just to make it easier to roll the dough into little balls.

I rolled the dough into balls and placed them on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet.

Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until you notice the very bottom edges turning light golden brown.

Allow to cool and enjoy!
