When I told Chad I was making White Chocolate Lime Cookies, he was a little skeptical. Pairing white chocolate with lime? And in cookies? After trying the first bite, he immediately had 3 more. Soft, chewy cookies studded with white chocolate chips and hints of fresh lime. The lime doesn’t overpower at all. It is the perfect amount to compliment the white chocolate.
White Chocolate Lime Cookies
Adapted from Evil Shenanigans
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup light brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon lime juice
1 tablespoon lime zest
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups white chocolate chips (12 oz bag)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line two large baking sheets with parchment or lightly grease.
In a large bowl, beat together butter, sugar, and brown sugar until just combined. Beat in eggs, one at a time. Mix in vanilla, lime juice, and zest.
In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Add to the wet ingredients just until combined. Gently fold in the chocolate chips.
Form into 1 inch balls and place on prepared baking sheets 2 inches apart. Bake in preheated oven until set and the edges are beginning to turn golden, about 10 minutes. Let rest on pan 3-5 minutes before removing to wire rack.
