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


  1. In a small bowl, combine flour, corn starch, and confectioners' sugar. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, cream butter, key lime juice, and key lime zest until smooth.
  3. Add flour mixture to butter mixture and begin mixing on low speed.
  4. Once mixture begins to get thick, increase speed to thoroughly mix until combined,
  5. Mix in white chocolate chips and optional macadamia nuts with a large spoon.
  6. Refrigerate dough for at least 45 minutes to firm up.
  7. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  8. 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.
  9. Let cool on baking sheets for at least 5 minutes, then remove to racks continue cooling.
  10. 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.
