Lime Sugar Cookies

I have a deep and abiding love for all things lime. Diet Coke with Lime, Key Lime anything, Lime and Chili cashews, Mojito’s, the list could go on for a while. So when I happened upon this recipe on Pintrest I just HAD to try it out. I made a few small changes and  these were wonderful. I was not disappointed! If you like lime, I would definitely recommend trying these out.

These we’re delicious and refreshing. They were a hit at the engagement dinner I made them for (the Hubs really liked them too). Plus they disappeared from the breakroom at work (my own personal sweet food disposal) by lunch!
