Lime Snowball Cookies

Postby Hj » Wed Nov 03, 2010 10:17 am

Bon Appétit, December 2005

1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup cornstarch
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
1/2 cup powdered sugar
2 Tbsp fresh lime juice
1 tsp (packed) finely grated lime peel
1/2 tsp lime oil (see Notes)

Additional powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350° F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
Whisk flour and cornstarch in medium bowl to blend. Using electric
mixer, beat butter and 1/2 cup powdered sugar in large bowl until
light and fluffy. Mix in lime juice, lime peel and lime oil. Beat in
flour mixture until smooth. Refrigerate dough until just firm, about
45 minutes.

Using scant 1 tablespoon for each, form dough into balls, and place
on prepared sheets, spacing 1 inch apart.

Bake cookies until pale golden on top and browned on bottom, about 23
minutes. Transfer baking sheets to racks; immediately sift generous
amount of powdered sugar over cookies. Cool cookies completely on
baking sheets.

Makes about 30.
A mistake is sometimes a great creation

Thank you for the recipe!
I have cooked the lemon cookies on the very similar recipe.
But I have never imagined to use lime instead of lemon. Think, that it shoud be amazing, will try it surely!
