Yummy little summer cookie. No lime oil, so I zested a few limes and used that instead -- was just fine. The citric acid adds a nice tiny burst of tart. Not into the sparkly -- just rolled it in powered sugar and they were ver nice. Got lots of compliments on them when I served them. Easy and delicious -- thanks for sharing.
Yummy & buttery-rich soft cookies w/a subtle lime flavor because I lacked the lime oil & citric acid. *But* I found a way to get a punch of lime flavor + a sparkle effect by using my pastry brush to apply a very fine film of water to the tops of the cookies & dipped them into lime margarita bar mix. Voila! A lime margarita cookie I liked a lot while DH chowed down on the powd sugar dusted variety he preferred. Great cookies, SPB, & a fun dy in my kitchen. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us.
I made a batch of these for my father (a key lime pie addict) for a Christmas gift. I have to admit to some substitutions and omissions: I couldn't find lime oil, used a combination of citric/tartaric/maltic acids instead of just citric, and omitted the glitter. That being said, these are WONDERFUL! If you like key lime pie, these are definitely for you. They were very sweet in your mouth, with a super tart aftertaste that my sour-loving husband thought was just right. If you use just citric acid, yours will be a little more tart than mine were (but I used what I had on hand). If you are looking for super tart, though, these are not going to turn your face inside out (the way my husband craves).
