With Easter just around the corner it’s time to to start baking. This recipe for glazed lime tea cookies is easy to make and quite refreshing on the palette. The sweetness of the sugar is balanced by the tart lime zest. These cookies are perfect for a tea party following Easter dinner. That’s how my grandma and I would enjoy them!
Careful when baking to not overcook these cookies as they do not change in colour that much. It is a good idea to let the glaze set and harden before storing them or else they will all stick together. These cookies taste best when they are enjoyed the same day that they are baked, so when you make a batch, get ready to indulge.
2 teaspoons lime juice
1/3 cup milk
1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup white sugar
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Combine the 2 teaspoons of lime juice with the milk, let stand for 5 minutes.
- In a large bowl, cream together the butter and 3/4 cup sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg, then stir in the lime zest and milk mixture. Combine the flour, baking powder and baking soda, blend into the creamed mixture. Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto the ungreased cookie sheets.
- Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, until the edges are light brown. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheets for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
