      I'm so glad to see this recipe here! I had the issue of Bon Appetit, but lost it. These are delicious. I have also substituted peppermint extract and crushed peppermint for some of the lime to make Peppermint Snowballs. The texture is perfect!

      These are such pretty little cookies, and the tart flavor gives the palate a delightful surprise! They could easily become a regular part of our holiday spread, and a nice ornament in a gift box.
