Lime adds a tropical counterpoint to this rich, sweet cookie.
1 cup sugar
1 cup butter
2 cups flour
1-1/2 teaspoons grated lime peel (packed)
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon lime juice
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Mix together flour, salt and baking powder. In a separate bowl, cream together butter, sugar and lime peel, then mix in the dry ingredients. Wrap the dough and refrigerate for one hour. Form the dough into 1" balls and place on greased baking sheet (cookies will spread during baking). Bake 15-20 minutes or until cookies are lightly browned.
