DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees farenheit. Grease 3 to 4 large baking sheets.
  • In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, nutmeg and cinnamon; set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, beat butter, sugar and lime zest until light and fluffy. Gradually beat in lime juice. Stir in flour mixture 1/2 cup at a time, blending well after each addition.
  • Place sugar-spice mixture in a small bowl. Roll rounded teaspoons of dough into 1-inch balls. Roll balls in sugar-spice mixture; arrange, 1 inch apart, on prepared baking sheets. Use a decorative cookie stamp or the bottom of a glass to flatten balls slightly.
  • Bake 13 to 16 minutes, or until deep golden brown on the bottom. Cool on racks. Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 week or freeze for longer storage.
