Do you remember the giant lemon sugar cookie recipe that I posted in August? You might not have even noticed it because the recipe was just kind of stuck at the bottom of my Lemon Tips and Tricks post. Well I really should have dedicated an entire post to those cookies because they were really amazing! Luckily, Patricia, of the wonderful Brazilian food blog Technicolor Kitchen, did it for me! But Patricia added an exciting new twist and turned them into Lime Sugar Cookies!
When I was in Sicily, limes were ridiculously expensive in our grocery store on the military base and were almost impossible to find anywhere else since lemons and oranges are the citrus fruits of choice in Italy. But now that I’m back in California where limes are generally about 10 cents each, I will be using them much more often! I love the flavor of limes and I know that it will be really great in these cookies!
Go check out Patricia’s beautiful lime cookies and be sure to let us know if you give either version a try! I also think an orange version of these would be wonderful. If anyone wants to give it a try and then blog about it, let me know so that I can link to the recipe!
