I love the flavor of lime and this recipe caught my eye...I haven't tried it as yet, but fully plan on it...this recipe is from an older edition of Family Circle.

The lime flavor comes out very nicely. I would recommend an extra 2-3 minutes baking time, as my first batch turned out a little under done. The second was just perfect. Also, I only used 1/2 cup icing sugar for the glace. Very nice cookie. :)
