Georgetown Lime Cookies

Ingredients

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
¾ cup butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
Finely grated peel of 2 limes
3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1/3 cup granulated sugar, mixed with
¼ teaspoon each ground nutmeg and cinnamon for topping

Preparation

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease 3 to 4 large baking sheets.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt, nutmeg and cinnamon. Set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, beat the butter, sugar and lime peel until light and fluffy. Gradually beat in lime juice.
  • Stir in the flour mixture ½ cup at a time, blending well after each addition.
  • Place the sugar-spice mixture in a small bowl, and roll rounded teaspoons of dough into 1-inch balls.
  • Roll the balls in sugar-spice mixture, and arrange, 1 inch apart, on prepared baking sheets. Use a decorative cookie stamp or the bottom of a glass to flatten the balls slightly.
  • Bake 13 to 16 minutes, or until deep golden brown on the bottom.
  • Cool on racks. Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 week; freeze for longer storage.
