Key Lime Coolers

READY IN: 56mins
Recipe by Just Janie

These tangy cookies are a favorite of mine. Light and tangy. Great when served with Sherbet as a light, company pleasing dessert. A little green coloring may be added but don't get them too green ! They pack well and look great on a cookie tray. Something different and not heavy or too rich. Pretty to look at too !

I just made these with First Fruits from my Persian Lime tree. They are nice shortbread cookies. Could make with lemon also. The glaze was WAY too loose for my taste. Drip that juice drop by drop for the thickness you want.
