Tea Time Lime Cookies


Preheat oven to 350 degrees

2/3 cup vanilla soy milk
2 large limes — 1st zest each and set aside then juice each into the soy milk and set aside
1 cup softened unsalted butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 large eggs
Zest of 2 limes
3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt

Cream together the softened butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time and mix into creamed mixture until well combined. Add zest of limes. Sift together flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda. Now alternate flour mixture and milk/lime juice mixture, about a third at a time until all is incorporated. Do not over-mix but make sure all is mixed from the bottom of bowl. Drop by rounded teaspoons or by 1″ ice-cream scoop onto parchment lined baking sheet and place in preheated oven for 13 to 15 minutes or until slightly brown on edges.

Remove from cookie sheet and place on cooling rack until cooled.

Glaze…
Mix together:

The zest and juice of one large lime. Add 2 cups powdered/confectioners sugar until smooth and creamy. Add additional juice or powdered/confectioners sugar until slightly runny texture so that it will stick to top of cookies when dipped. Dip each cookie after it is cooled and place on wire rack until the glaze is hardened. Pour a large glass of milk or a cup of coffee or tea and have a cookie and enjoy.
