White Chocolate Limeade Cookies

White Chocolate Limeade CookiesIt’s Improv Challenge time once again.  This month, the theme is Lime and White Chocolate.  With Christmas just a week away, I am betting a lot of the recipes are going to be sweet treats and I cannot wait to see them!White Chocolate Limeade CookiesI went through a lot of ideas before I settled on these cookies.  I thought about a cheesecake, some fudge and even chocolate dipped shortbread.  In the end, I found this recipe almost by accident.  I was thumbing through a cookbook put together by my mother-in-law’s church congregation, looking to see if her fudge recipe was in it and ran across limeade cookies.    I had been thinking lime juice, but at that moment, a lightbulb went off and I headed to my car to go buy some limeade.White Chocolate Limeade CookiesThese were some good cookies.  The only complaint came from my husband.  He told me I should NOT have colored the glaze  green.  He may have said something about nasal excretions.  It wasn’t complimentary.  I gave the rest of the cookies to my sons.

  1. Too funny about what your husband said, but I have to disagree. Wrong shade of green. They sound really yummy and great idea to use limeade!

  2. Husbands who make negative comments about food items should be eliminated from the tasting pool… at least that’s what I tell mine. :)

    Add a little tequila & a sprinkling of coarse salt and you could have a margarita cookie. hmmmmmmm…
