Good cookie! I didn't have quite the amount of lime zest but they were still tasty. I almost goofed and left out 1/2 stick of butter, but remembered at the last minute. They were a nice tart cookie. I just sifted powdered sugar on top after baking.

WONDERFUL cookie. My friend and I are going to be making these tomorrow night for a Christmas cookie exchange - but these always are the first to go!! Thank you for posting this recipe.

These are very addicting! Use the real key lime juice and you just can't go wrong. They are very easy to make, but I had a hard time sharing them with others. (I had to hide some for myself because they go so fast!)

Very easy to make. My little daughter and I made them. I would rather make them larger as a big elegant cookie, perhaps put some fring around the edge for flare. I am making the next batch about 2 inches round. The kids love them too!

These were excellent. I think the trick is to make sure to roll and wrap the dough tightly in wax paper before chilling. The dough sliced very easily, and the cookies barely spread, so I put them very close together, more like 1/4" apart, which meant that I only had to bake in 3 batches. I also got 3 rolls of dough instead of 2, but ended up with about 120-135 cookies. They have a lovely flavor, and I will make these often, to use as a base for key lime tarts, and just to eat on their own. Delicious cookie, sugarpea!

This is a nice, delicate little cookie. The lime taste isn't overpowering. I was skeptical when making this since the dough didn't really seem to come together and was very crumbly. Also, it wasn't totally firm after 1 hour in the refrigerator. I forged ahead nonetheless. I made a 1/2 recipe and got about 30 cookies and they're all for me (since DH isn't a lime fan)! The cookies do not spread when cooked.
