      These were definitely tasty, but the cooking time or temperature must have been WAY off! At 350, these took close to 30 minutes to turn even slightly brown on the bottoms. Maybe I over-beat the batter (it was very airy, more like a mousse than a typical cookie dough); next time I will combine the wet and dry ingredients with my hands rather than the mixer. I used the zest of 3 and the juice of 2 regular limes and the flavor was pretty limey, but could have been stronger. I also added some white chocolate chips, which worked perfectly :)

      I was apprehensive at first but these turned out very well. Even my wife who does not like citrus in cookies loved them . This recipe is a keeper.

      Great cookies! I refrigerated the dough and baked them on parchment paper. When they came out of the oven I put the parchment paper with the cookies on a rack to cool. They were very easy to get off when cooled. I will make them again. Thanks! I plan to take some to work tomorrow - I think they'll be a hit!
