Ingredients

Cookies

  • 2 cups butter or margarine, softened
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 3 1/2 cups Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons grated lime peel
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • Granulated sugar

Lime Glaze and Decoration

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons Key lime or regular lime juice
  • 2 tubes (0.68 oz each) Betty Crocker™ green decorating gel, if desired

Directions

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, beat butter and 1 cup powdered sugar with electric mixer on medium speed, or mix with spoon. Stir in flour, cornstarch, lime peel and vanilla until well blended.
  • 2
    Shape dough into 3/4-inch balls. Place about 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Press bottom of glass into dough to grease, then dip into granulated sugar; press on dough balls until 1/4 inch thick.
  • 3
    Bake 9 to 11 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
  • 4
    In small bowl, stir together 1 cup powdered sugar and the lime juice. Stir in additional juice if necessary. Spread glaze over cookies. Squeeze drops of decorating gel on glazed cookies; drag toothpick through gel for marbled design.

Expert Tips

  • tip 1
    When grating peel from a lime, grate just the green part; the white part will be bitter.
  • tip 2
    You can make an easy flavor twist by using lemon peel for the lime peel, lemon juice for the lime juice and yellow decorating gel for the green.
  • tip 3
    Powdered sugar and cornstarch create the melt-in-your-mouth quality of these cookies.
  • tip 4
    If you like using a cookie press, make lime ribbon cookies. Prepare dough as directed, but do not shape it into balls. Place dough in a cookie press with a ribbon tip, and form long ribbons of dough on ungreased cookie sheet; cut ribbons into 3-inch lengths. Continue as directed for baking.
