extra limes left over from mexican poker night last weekend. i'm sure there are more creative ideas, but i decided to go with lime meltaways. hmm, who wouldn't like to melt away to warmer weather and soft beaches?
these were fun and easy to make, although i made a mess with the confectioner's sugar. and they were a bit more delicate than i expected, so i don't think i can bring these into work (delicate and powdery? that's nothing but trouble and a messy keyboard!) i am also not sure if i particularly like this type of cookie, with the sugar coating all sides. i know i like linzers, so i thought i would like these too. it was worth a try. these were good. but not great.
although you know what? mr. mimi likes them. so maybe you're a limaholic and would like to take your own try? i would suggest adding more juice or zest. you can find the recipe, along with a very cute video, if you click here.
update: i just had some meltaways (two days old now) and let me say, wow, delish! i guess, for me, these are one of those cookies that taste better the next day. super yummy, with a slight saltiness. i would still probably add just a pinch more juice or zest next time. but i take it all back, these are great!
