Lime Macadamia Nut Cookies


These cookies are my first attempt at creating my own cookie recipe. I only made a small batch in case they turned out horribly. I must say that they weren't bad. Not the taste I was going for. I wanted more lime and less macadamia nuts and I wanted them chewier. I don't have that science down yet. But, they were a good cookie. Almost like shortbread, but a little softer.

Lime Macadamia Nut Cookies
1/2 c butter, softened to room temp.
1/2 c sugar
1/4 c brown sugar
2 Tbls lime juice (About 2 Limes)
1/2 tsp lime zest
1 tsp vanilla
1 egg
1 3/4 c flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 c toasted macadamia nuts (maybe 1/2 c would be better)

Cream the butter and sugars. Add the lime juice and zest. Add the eggs and vanilla.
Stir together in a separate bowl the flour, baking powder, and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the cream mixture. Fold in the macadamia nuts. The dough is pretty sticky. Drop by tablespoonfuls on parchment lined cookie sheets and bake at 350 degrees for about 8 minutes.
