White Chocolate Key Lime Cookies

2 of my hubby's favorite things are Key Limes and white chocolate. He loves these cookies. I adapted it from about 3 recipes - 1 for key lime cookies, 1 for white chocolate, 1 for regular lime cookies.

White Chocolate Lime Cookies
Yield 5 dozen cookies

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened (sometimes, if I don't have unsalted,I use salted. If I do that, I cut down the salt to 1/8th teaspoon)

  • 3/4 cup sugar

  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

  • 1 tablespoon Key lime juice

  • 1 tablespoon Key lime zest

  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1 – 12 oz bag white chocolate chips

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line two sheet pans with parchment paper.

  2. In a large mixing bowl or stand mixer, mix sugar and butter until combined but not fluffy.

  3. Add eggs one at a time (I am anal and break my eggs individually before I add in. If you've ever had a bad egg, you know why I do it.)

  4. In a small bowl, mix vanilla, lime juice and lime zest. Add to sugar/butter/eggs. Mix to combine.

  5. Whisk together flours, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. (I sift them together. That guarantees that they're thorougly blended)

  6. Mix into creamed mixture until just combined. Fold in the white chocolate chips.

  7. Shape the dough into 1″ to 1.5" balls, and place 2 inches apart on the baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes, or until the edges are golden and the centers are just set. (My oven is erratic. I set the timer for 8 mins, and keep checking.)

  8. Allow to sit on the pan for three minutes before moving to wire racks. (I don't do this. I slide right off the paper onto racks, let them sit there for @8 mins, then into an airtight container. If you let them sit on the pan, they keep cooking and get too crisp for our tastes)
