A recipe for White Chocolate Lime Cookies! These soft, chewy cookies are studded with white chocolate chips and have a hint of fresh lime.
Have a couple of extra limes on hand? Use them to make these White Chocolate Lime Cookies! In only a few minutes and with minimal effort, you can have these wonderfully soft and chewy cookies packed with white chocolate chips and flavored with both lime zest and juice.
One of the best parts about these cookies is how quickly and easily they come together. There are no resting times in the refrigerator or complicated techniques. Simply beat together the butter and sugars with an egg and vanilla extract along with lime zest/juice. Mix in the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt just until combined, then fold in the white chocolate chips to form the dough. Arrange the dough in 1 inch balls (a medium-sized cookie scoop works well here to keep the cookies roughly the same size) on the prepared baking sheets and bake until the are starting to turn crisp and golden around the edges, 10-12 minutes. They are especially delicious warm from the oven alongside a glass of cold milk.
Take care not to over-bake the cookies. They should just start to be turning golden brown around the edges to keep a slightly crisp texture that gives way to a soft and chewy center with the melty white chocolate chips.
These cookies are best the day they are made, but will keep for up to a week in an airtight container at room temperature. They also freeze well for up to a month. Allow the cookies to cool completely to room temperature on a wire rack before storing. Freeze in a single layer on a parchment-lined baking sheet before transferring to a freezer-safe bag.
