Lime Meltaway Spritz Cookies

READY IN: 23mins
Recipe by grandma2969

just love these refreshing cookies, especially in the summer Sometimes I tint half of the dough light green and fill cookie shooter with green and white dough so cookie spritz is two toned.. It is nice to vary the flavor with lemon and change flavor ingredients accordingly..

I didn't bother with the glaze due to time constraints, but this recipe worked really well! It was my first time using a cookie press and I'm very pleased with the results. My modifications were to use the zest from a whole lime, and the juice from 1/4 right in the cookies. I also chilled the dough for about 10 minutes before working with it. I look forward to making other flavor alterations with this recipe!
