Lime Lights

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large mixing bowl beat butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Beat in granulated sugar until combined, scraping sides of bowl occasionally. Beat in the 2 teaspoons lime peel, the lime juice, and vanilla until combined. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. Using a wooden spoon, stir in any remaining flour and the macadamia nuts. Divide dough in half.
  1. On a lightly floured surface, roll one portion of dough at a time to 1/4 inch thick. Using a 2-inch cookie cutter, cut out dough. Place cutouts 1 inch apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.
  1. Bake for 11 to 12 minutes or until edges are light brown. Transfer to a wire rack; cool.
  1. Spread or drizzle cookies with Lime-Cream Cheese Icing. If desired, sprinkle with lime peel.
