Well Tabitha...they looked pretty, they were super easy to make; but, in all honesty the day I made them, I didn't think they tasted like a 5 star cookie. After a day of sitting though, man oh man, they taste good! I actually think these are one of those cookies that need a day for all the flavours to really come together. I LOVE THEM!!! So moist & tasty. A great "sophisticated" looking cookie. Next time I'm doubling the lime zest-i love things with a real tang; but, they're still a 5 star all the way.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350' F.
  2. Line a baking tray with parchment paper.
  3. Beat butter and sugar until smooth. Add egg yolks, lime zest and vanilla and blend. Stir in flour and salt until evenly combined. Spoon and shape 1-inch balls of dough. In bowl with sugar, roll dough ball until covered. Place 1 1/2 inches apart on prepared baking tray. Press an indentation in the center of each cookie (a few cracks are to be expected) and bake for 13 to 15 min, until cookies just begin to brown lightly on the bottom. Let cool.
  4. Stir apricot jam to loosen and spoon a bit of jam in each thumbprint. Melt white chocolate in microwave on med. heat, stirring every 10 seconds. Dip a fork into chocolate and drizzle over cookies or put melted chocolate in pastry bag and squeeze over cookies. Let cookies set for at least an hour before packing. Refridgerate.
  5. Cookies will keep up to a week in airtight container.
