There is always room during the Christmas season for a lighter, crisper cookie. These are a favorite, living in Florida, because we are lucky enough to have out own Key Lime tree in our backyard. It produces tons of fruit a year so when we get tired of Key Lime Pie (is that even possible?) I make these Coconut Lime Crisps.

They’ll remind you, even in the middle of winter, of tropical islands and getaways. And that’s never a bad thing! These cookies bake up super crisp (check out how crisp they are!) and quite large (don’t be surprised by how much they spread) and they have a wonderfully tart lime taste that is offset by the addition of sweetened coconut.

A great cookie for any time of year but around Christmas it gives you a lighter option to all the butter, chocolate & peppermint cookies.

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup + 2 Tablespoons butter, softened
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • 2 Tablespoons lime juice
  • 4 teaspoons lime zest
  • 1-1/4 cups flour
  • 3/4 cups shredded sweetened coconut

Directions

  1. Cream the butter and sugar together in a medium bowl. Add the almond extract, lime juice and zest. Continue beating while adding flour and coconut.
  2. Using your hands, roll dough out on a floured piece of wax paper into an 18"-20" log. Wrap tightly with paper and place in refrigerator to chill for at least one hour.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare cookie sheets by lining with parchment paper or a silicone mat.
  4. Remove dough from refrigerator and roll in colored sugar. (I’ve used red & green and they’re both pretty for the season). Cut into 1/4" thick slices and place on cookie sheets 2" apart.
  5. Bake 15 minutes or until golden. Cool cookies on cookie sheets for 5 minutes then gently remove to wire racks. Cool completely and store in airtight cookie tin.
