      I just had to try these after seeing the beautiful picture Slatts posted! One word.......absofreakin'lutelywonderful! I did try a little different way to go with the lime zest. I added it to the chocolate before drizzling it over the shortbread. And then used more sprinkled over the cookie. These will be made again, Queen Dana, and thnx for posting it. Made for the Voracious Vagabonds of ZWT 6.

      These are very tasty but I did not get a lot of lime flavor. Maybe a little lime juice in the dough mixture might kick up the lime a bit more. I loved the white chocolate and almond topping. Will make these again soon but up the lime zest and add a bit of juice.

      MY, oh, my, these are tasty! And super easy. I needed something to give as a gift on the last day of school, so I got up early and got these made. They came together quickly and I followed the recipe, as written. I had a little trouble with my white chocolate, though no fault of the recipe. The lime is a lovely flavor and very complimentary! I have already been told I need to make them again! I did lined my pan with wax paper, before buttering, for ease of removal. Thanks for sharing these gems, Queen Dana. Made for ZWT.
