Yield: 3 dozen
Ingredients
  • Cookies:
  • 1 cup butter, softened to room temperature
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • dash salt

  • Lime Cream Cheese Frosting:
  • 2 Tbsp soft butter
  • 4 oz cream cheese, softened to room temperature

  • zest of 1 lime
  • 2 1/2 -3 cups powdered sugar
Instructions
  1. Beat butter and powdered sugar till creamy. Stir in flour, cornstarch, and salt till well combined.
  2. Roll dough out into two logs that are 1" in diameter. (Chill dough for a few minutes if it is too sticky.)
  3. Wrap logs in plastic wrap and chill for at least two hours, or up to three days.
  4. To bake cookies, cut slices about 1/4" thick and place on un-greased cookie sheets. (I line mine with silpat mats.) Bake at 350° for about 9 minutes or till edges just start to brown. Cool completely on cooling racks.

  5. Frosting: Beat butter, cream cheese, and salt till smooth and creamy. Add lime zest and enough powdered sugar to make a spreadable frosting. Spread frosting on the tops of the cookies.

  1. The residential property will should be evaluated by an FHA appraiser as well as an FHA approved evaluation must be done.

  2. Without the MIP, FHA-approved lenders would certainly have little need
    to make FHA-insured loans.

  3. I will be making these ASAP! They look so easy and delicious!

  4. Hmmm I’m loving lime-anything! They look so good and must taste delicious!
