I love sweets, especially baked goods like this delicious Lime Cookie recipe! Some people love cake, some love fudge, and then there are those people who love pie. Me? Well, everyone knows that I just absolutely love cookies! I'm a regular old cookie monster, except I don't waste any crumbs when I eat my cookies!
While there are some store-bought cookies that are pretty good, I have always preferred homemade, and I've spent a lot of time experimenting with different recipes.
You can use bottled lime juice or fresh in this lime soft cookies recipe, whatever floats your boat!

What Is the Best Lime for These Cookies?
Our neighbor has a key lime tree that used to hang over into our yard, but after putting up a new wooden fence, it's been trimmed back...I seriously can not wait for it to regrow so that I can grab a few key limes!
When I saw that the fence guys had trimmed the limbs that hung over into our yard, I was so upset. I've been helping myself to those key limes for years!
I can't wait to try this recipe again with key lime juice...
You could also use lemon juice or even Meyer lemon juice. Yum, right?
