      Great! i made these last night and the husband loved them. He couldn't say anything because his mouth was so full, but he gave two thumbs up. A nice, light summer cookie. Thanks for the recipe.

      Used these on a cookie tray destined for the office. My biggest problem was only saving one for myself. Tangy and not too sweet, these were tender and delicious with a cake like center. *Made for ZWT3*

      Wonderful! The cookie is light and crispy. And the icing really adds that little bit of something else! I know that these will be requested FREQUENTLY from now on. I didn't really change the original recipe but I did embellish it a bit. I added a few drops of green food colouring to the icing for a little fun. Plus, I changed out a 1/4 cup of the flour for whole wheat flour. 3 limes make a perfect amount of lime juice for the entire recipe. Perfect! Thanks for posting!
