Delicious cookie. Tasted them at a friend's house and liked them. Went home and made a batch and squeezed the juice of the lime into the batter and that added a nice tang.
First time I've made these at Christmas - delightfully easy and delicious with the lovely tang of lime.
These cookies are wonderful. Lime and pecans make a wonderful infusion. I have made them for the past three years and will continue to.
