Sweet + Tart = Delicious! I highly recommend giving these cookies a try. They were simple to make and really made a good impression on everyone. My mom lent me her new microplane zester which really helped with the lime zest/rind. I also used one of those new nylon cooking brushes to ice the cooled cookies and it worked really well. Thanks for this recipe...it's a keeper and I will definitely be making them again.

This is the perfect cookie for me. I love their simplicity for preparation, but complexity of flavor. They are the perfect balance of sweet white chocolate and tart lime. My holiday cookie trays were great with this addition.

I made these for work and they were a huge hit! Everyone thinks I'm an amazing baker, but honestly it was such an easy recipe. I did omit the lime icing and I'm so glad I did. I thought the cookies were a bit sweet for me, but nonetheless they were delicious and didn't even last into the afternoon. Thanks so much for posting!
