I picked up some key lime juice recently in a local supermarket to make a homemade key lime pie. It was wonderful and very simple. I have a bunch left over and decided to try and bake some key lime cookies.
I found a recipe on line to try on the Mr. Food website and thought I'd give it a try. I was suprised because Art Ginsburg, commonly known as Mr. Food recently passed away. I can remember watching his segments on channel 7 news. He was a food network star before we even had a food network channel.
I had to improvise just a bit. The recipe called out for fresh key lime juice so I substituted my store bought concentrated stuff. It also called out for key lime zest, but I eliminated that since I didn't have any key limes in the house.
The cookies came out moist but crispy on the edges and have a wonderful tangy lime flavor. I got about 3 dozen so I'll have to make another batch. I'm going to make a key lime frosting or glaze for the next batch and pretty them up a bit with sprinkles of lime zest.
These cookies are very good and I highly recommend them. The recipe can be found on the link above but you can also find it here.
