    so delish and cute! I've made them several times and they have turned out perfectly every time! The key is to bake them until the edges just start to brown. Perfect!

    Adorable, delicious cookies, but I too found the dough very soft and hard to work with. Maybe less lime juice or more flour might help? It helped tremendously to roll the dough between sheets of wax paper and freeze the rolled dough on cookie sheets. It was MUCH easier to cut shapes from the frozen dough than refrigerated. (Also, next time, Instead of dividing dough into two disks I'd roll out four.) Anyway, a bit of work, but worth the effort for the zippy, zesty lime flavor.

    Great flavor but harder than a rock. Our family is using them for "dunkers" Could someone tell me why they could have become SO hard? Did I bake them too long? They certainly are adorable.

    If you enjoy these, try the Grapefruit Sandwich cookies! There is nothing better than the taste of summer in the winter.

    I rolled these into balls and then rolled them into icing sugar ,flattened them and then baked them. What a hit and they are nice and tangy

    Debbie R, colored sugar is excellent to use on these cookies during the holidays. You can do some with colored sugar and some with a dust of confectioner sugar showing like snow.

    Irissa, I have interchanged lemon and lime in many recipes and have had great results. Just use the same amounts and it should be great!
