Key Lime anything is a must have this Spring… and according to the calendar it should start warming up soon. That means it is time to celebrate that cute little green fruit!
Key Lime Cookies for the Win!
Pie is what most people, including myself, think of when they hear “key lime” but that is changing. Don’t get me wrong I love a good key lime pie, but they are also more involved to make. These cookies literally come together in about 15 minutes and are ready to indulge in within a hour. No chilling, no wait time to set up… mix, bake, ice and eat. DONE!
Yes… you can enjoy everything you love about your favorite key lime pie within a hour.
Oh the Icing!
Let’s just be super honest, one of the best parts of a key lime pie is the sweetened condensed milk in the filling. There you go I admitted it, I am owning it and I am not ashamed. There is just something so rich, creamy and decadent about sweetened condensed milk that I just had to make sure was in these cookies. The most logical place for me was in the icing… and voila key lime icing was made.
This super rich and creamy topping is sweet, tart and truly the perfect addition to the already amazing cookie. I mean I might be thinking of additional ways to use the leftover icing…so many ways.
A Little Surprise
For some extra yummy fun I threw in some white chocolate chunks in the cookies. For me I am more about a chuck vs a chip so for these cookies I chopped up white chocolate chips so they were more course. I love not only the texture and depth they add to the cookie but also the bits of extra surprise you get in some bites.
You can use whole chips for sure…I just love the bit of white chocolate in these cookies.
Key Lime Cookie Time!
