I converted these to gluten free cookies with great success. What a wonderful and different cookie! These cookies provide a sweet kick to the palate. The lime absolutely compliments the white chocolate and vice versa. I, too, reduced the zest just a bit for the frosting. I added a 1/4 tsp. xanthan gum, as well as 1/4 tsp. baking powder and bumped up the baking soda to almost 1 tsp. I used a gluten free flour blend I use for baking, and they came out great!! This is definitely a cookie recipe to share. It is different, refreshing, and so scrumptious! I have had several requests for 'that lime cookie' from those who I've shared them with. A new holiday and everyday regular for my repertoire.
these cookies are delicious - it doesn't sound like 2 flavors that would go together very well, but it is a great combination. made them last year at christmas, and got lots of requests again this year for them.
These cookies are absolutely delicious. They are my new favorite cookie!
The white chocolate balances the lime, in the cookie, very well. I think I will go lighter on the lime zest for the glaze, next time. It was a little strong for my liking and I like limes.My picky husband liked them a lot, so that says a TON in my book! :-)
I made a double batch and in half I used the white chocolate suggested in the recipe. In the other half I used bittersweet chocolate chips. Both drew rave reviews when I took them to work. Personally, I like the bittersweet chips best.

Some people say their weakness is chocolate. Others say potato chips. My weakness is brunch. The sweet and savory combinations of brunch food are irresistible. I have spent many hours in search of the best brunch in town, and I am being totally honest when I say I found it in my own kitchen.
