Wendy B: These refreshing, cake-like cookies are not too sweet and a welcome addition at a holiday cookie exchange or a picnic in July. Though the sides touching the sheet browned rather aggressively, I'll gladly make these cookies again when I crave a bite of bright lime!
Jonathan R: Simple, buttery, crumbly, touch of citrus. Great for cookie gift boxes or taking to parties.
LaRae Burk: Easy to assemble and bake. A beautiful cookie with bright lime zest and sparkling, festive sugar.
Amber F: Super easy to make, with a super short ingredient list...and the taste sort of reflects that. They're not bad--we ate them all up--but they're not the best cookies I've ever made, either.
Liz C.: The recipe calls for refrigerating the dough for three hours to firm but to save time I froze it for one hour, and that worked out well. The tartness of the lime balances nicely with the sweetness of the shortbread, and the sugary coating makes the cookies look fancy enough for a classy holiday party.
Cookie J: Making these while babysitting my 5 year-old granddaughter stretched a 45-minute prep time to four hours. The resulting cookie, like margarita-flavored sawdust, was not at all worth the effort, even for my granddaughter.
Sara S.: The cookie is a different take on the traditional sugar cookie, with the addition of the lime juice and zest. They are easy to make, small (think pop quite a few in your mouth before you realize it), and you can make margaritas with the juice from the limes needed for the zest (and drink them during the 3 hours the cookies have to refrigerate before baking.)
Noreen Brawley, with a great assist by Kevin Brawley: Followed recipe EXACTY! Lime flavor somewhat bland; appearance, rather boring. Might taste better with a shot of tequila!
Joanna: Tasty cookies but not much lime flavor (which was fine with me because I don't like lime). But this would make a great base recipe to use for playing around with other flavors.
Jenifer C.: An easy, straight forward, shortbread-with-a-twist cookie. It would survive nicely on a well rounded cookie tray with other, perhaps more exciting friends as a nice palette cleanser.
Stephanie Engel: These tiny sugar cookies are delicious and you could eat 40 in one sitting. If I weren't 8 months pregnant, I'd be eating these with a Corona or 3.
Lizz Casey: Recipe was easy to follow but make sure butter and cream cheese is truly at room temperature. At first the flavor in the cookies were somewhat bland but after a few days the lime flavor really came out and the cookies were quite enjoyable.
E.L.: Icebox/slice and bake cookies have never been my strong suit. However, these seemingly simple cookies grow on you as you notice the tang from the cream cheese and enjoy them with a cup of tea.
Cathy C: These were good, not spectacular, cookies; probably won't make again. They need more lime flavor and I didn't have much luck with the green sugar coating.
Jason K.: About as exciting as a Christmas party after the nog’s run dry. These cookies were fine, not worth the (minimal, even) effort.
Margaret: If this cookie were a celebrity it would be Maggie Smith - not too sweet, a bit tart, but nonetheless a perfectly appropriate cookie to serve with tea and finger sandwiches.
