    PaulaG's Note:

    These make a nice addition to any cookie tray or a cool refreshing cookie to serve along side lime serbert during the warm summer months. Pepitas are pumplin seeds and I usually purchase them in bulk at the health food store. The recipe was printed in the spring 2006 issue of Sabroso and local dining guide.

      What a delightfully different cookie! They're chewy inside but the sugar gives them a nice little crunch on the outside, and the lime flavor is just heaven for a lime-lover like me. I may have made mine too big--I had to cook mine 13-15 minutes. Regardless, this is one delicious little cookie! If you like lime, definitely try these.
