  • “Great! i made these last night and the husband loved them. He couldn’t say anything because his mouth was so full, but he gave two thumbs up. A nice, light summer cookie. Thanks for the recipe.”

  • “Used these on a cookie tray destined for the office.My biggest problem was only saving one for myself. Tangy and not too sweet, these were tender and delicious with a cake like center.*Made for ZWT3*”

  • “Wonderful!The cookie is light and crispy.And the icing really adds that little bit of something else!I know that these will be requested FREQUENTLY from now on.I didn’t really change the original recipe but I did embellish it a bit.I added a few drops of green food colouring to the icing for a little fun.Plus, I changed out a 1/4 cup of the flour for whole wheat flour. 3 limes make a perfect amount of lime juice for the entire recipe.Perfect!Thanks for posting!”
