1 tablespoon
fresh lime juice
1 1/2 teaspoons

1 1/2 teaspoon

1 teaspoon

2 1/2 cups

fresh lime juice

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 350°F. 
  2. Combine butter and sugar in bowl; beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add eggs, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, 1 tablespoon lime juice, 1 1/2 teaspoons lemon zest, 1 1/2 teaspoons lime zest and vanilla. Continue beating until well mixed. Reduce speed to low; add flour, baking powder and salt. Beat until well mixed.
  3. Roll rounded teaspoonfuls of dough into 5-inch lengths on lightly floured surface with floured hands; press ends together to form rings. Place 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until very lightly browned and set. Let cool 2 minutes on cookie sheets; remove to wire cooling racks.
  4. Meanwhile, combine powdered sugar and enough lemon and lime juice in small bowl for desired glazing consistency; stir in 1 1/2 teaspoons lemon zest and 1 1/2 teaspoons lime zest. Dip tops of warm cookies into glaze; place onto wire cooling racks, glazed-side up.
