Recipe of the Day:Lime Cookies


1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs
3 Tbs grated lime zest
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 1/4 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup confectioners sugar

Beat butter with granulated sugar until light and fluffy; beat in eggs, 1 at a time, zest, and vanilla. In separate bowl, whisk together four, baking powder and salt; stir into butter mixture in 2 additions. Divide dough into thirds. Place each on a sheet of waxed paper; using paper as a guide, roll into 10-inch long log. Wrap in the waxed paper, twisting ends to seal. Refridgerate until firm (about 3 hours or overnight).

Line baking sheets with parchment paper, or grease. Cut dough into 1/4-inch slices; place 1 inch apart on pans. Bake in top and bottom thirds of 350 F oven, rotating and switching pans halfway through, until golden, 12 to 14 minutes.

Spread confectioners sugar in shallow pan. While cookies are still hot, dip in confectioners sugar to coat both sides. Transfer to racks and let cool. Coat again with confectioners sugar.

makes 96 cookies
