Learn How it Works...
2 tablespoon freshly squeezed lime juice
1/3 cup sugar
1 large Land O Lakes® Egg (yolk only)
1 tablespoon freshly grated lime zest
1 drop green food color, if desired
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
Combine all filling ingredients except food color in 2-quart saucepan; mix well. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, 3-4 minutes or until mixture begins to thicken. (Do not boil.) Remove from heat. Stir in food color, if desired. Set aside to cool.
Heat oven to 325°F.
Combine butter, 1/4 cup sugar, egg yolk, and vanilla in bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, 1-2 minutes or until well mixed. Add flour and salt; beat at low speed 2-3 minutes or until well mixed.
Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Place 1 inch apart onto ungreased baking sheets. Make indentation in center of each cookie with thumb or back of teaspoon. Spoon about 1/2 teaspoon filling into each cookie indentation.
Bake 12-15 minutes or until set but not brown. Cool 1 minute on baking sheet; remove to cooling rack. Cool completely. Sprinkle tops with powdered sugar.
