These are very refreshing. The combination of white chocolate with the keylime is wonderful. I would recommend adding the nuts

- 3⁄4 cup butter, Cut Into Cubes
- 1 teaspoon lime zest, grated
- 1 teaspoon key lime juice
- 1 cup white chocolate chips
- 1⁄4 cup macadamia nuts, Chopped (optional)
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- In a small bowl, combine flour, corn starch, and confectioners' sugar. Set aside.
- In a large bowl, cream butter, key lime juice, and key lime zest until smooth.
- Add flour mixture to butter mixture and begin mixing on low speed.
- Once mixture begins to get thick, increase speed to thoroughly mix until combined,
- Mix in white chocolate chips and optional macadamia nuts with a large spoon.
- Refrigerate dough for at least 45 minutes to firm up.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- Roll dough into 1-inch balls. Place 1-1/2 inches apart on lined baking sheet, and bake for 10 to 12 minutes until bottom edges just barely begin to turn brown. Do not over-bake.
- Let cool on baking sheets for at least 5 minutes, then remove to racks continue cooling.
- Roll cooled cookies in powdered sugar to cover. Store in an airtight container.
Wow! I loved the combination of lime, white chocolate and macadamia nuts. I used parchment paper to line my pan and they didn't stick at all. The cornstarch makes these very tender. I used regular limes because it is what I had on hand and I didn't even roll them in powdered sugar... they were still marvelous.
