I have been eyeing this recipe for some time and I just wanted to try it. I love lime in cookies. It adds this yummy zing that makes me want to keep eating them. Betty Crocker makes these premade cookie mixes in bags. I like to do things all from sratch, but when I just dumped all of the ingredients together and mixed I thought, "Wow, this was so easy and I only have to clean up one bowl. No measuring cups or anything!" Anyway, Betty Crocker holds a recipe contest using these cookie mixes and this recipe was one of their finalists. I love the Betty Crocker website because they have all of these great ways to use their cakes and cookie mixes to make something that looks and tastes original.
Caribbean Lime Coolers
1 pouch (1 lb 1.5oz) Betty Crocker Sugar Cookie Mix
1/2 c coconut (I used sweetened)
1 Tbls grated lime peel
3 Tbl lime juice, about 3 limes
6 Tbls butter, melted
1/4 c powdered sugar
Heat oven to 250F. In a large bowl, stir cookie mix, coconut, lime peel, lime juice, butter, and egg until soft dough forms.
Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets.
Bake 9-13 min or until edges are light golden brown. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheet. Cool completely, about 15 min.
With small strainer, sift powdered sugar over cooled cookies. (I left this step out. I wasn't in the mood to make another mess.)
