Lime Dunked Shortbread Cookies

Updated: Jan 12, 2023

Light, buttery shortbread cookies dunked in a lime glaze that’s impossible to resist. A homemade recipe that's the perfect balance... a cookie that’s not overly sweet, coated in tart lime goodness.

Some consider lime a summer only thing, but I find lime flavored anything hard to resist year round. I get this from my Dad, who has always been obsessed with anything involving lime.

Shortbread cookies have far less sugar, and my family seems to enjoy them just as much. Great thing about shortbread is you can turn them savory or sweet. So versatile depending on your needs. You could use rosemary, thyme, or even chocolate.

Cream together the butter and sugar, then add some zest. Add the flour and salt and mix until it just starts to come together.

Dump it on the counter and work into a cohesive dough. Then roll it out 1/4" thick. Make sure to flour the surface and on top of the dough.

Cut into some shapes. I chose triangles this time.

CHILL THE COOKIES. For at least a half an hour.

Then bake at 340 degrees for 10-12 minutes. Or when they're just starting to brown.

Meanwhile make some glaze. Add some lime juice to the powdered sugar and throw in some zest (I just like the look of green little specks on the finished product!).

Cool the cookies. Then DUNK. Let the excess drip off a bit. I also scrape the bottom of the cookie so it's free of glaze.

Set on a rack above a cookie sheet to catch the drips. Dry for an hour or two.
