Key Lime cookies

Our recent trip to the Florida Keys reignited my love for anything key lime :) I made key lime bars last week and now these yummy cookies. These freeze great- either the dough or as baked, cooled cookies :) They were a hit w Mae too!

1 stick of butter (1/2 c.), at room temperature
1 c. sugar
1 egg + 1 yolk
1/4 c. fresh key lime juice
1 tsp. zest
2 c. flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt

-In a large bowl cream butter and sugar
-Add eggs & mix well
-Add lime juice & zest
-Add flour 1 cup at a time then add baking powder and salt
-Bc the dough is very sticky it needs to sit in refrigerator for 1 hour or freezer for 30 minutes.
-Preheat oven to 350
-Roll into 1 inch balls
-Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown
-Enjoy w hot tea :)
