Okay truthfully, I didn’t like pie until this last summer! Key Lime is still not on my nice list (I need to ease in ok??). My father in law is crazy for key lime pie, so I had to make these cookies to see if the craze continued. They actually taste really good & they’re definitely worth a shot!!
Key Lime Pie Cookies
- 1 cup Margarine
- 1 1/4 cups white sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 3 Tbsp key lime juice
- 2 tsp grated lime zest
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cup finely crushed graham cracker crumbs
- 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350F. Cream together Margarine and sugar until fluffy (2-3 minutes).
Add the egg, vanilla, key lime juice and lime zest and continue mixing for 1 more minute.
Sift all dry ingredients (baking soda, salt, graham cracker crumbs, & flour) together and slowly add them into the sugary mixture.
Scoop the dough into 1″ sized balls and place on baking sheet coated in parchment paper.
Bake cookies in preheated oven for 8-10 minutes, or until edges are slightly browned.
Transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool.
Place the white chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl. Melt in microwave by heating for 20 seconds, then taking it out and stirring with a spoon. Repeat this process until chocolate is melted completely. Place melted chocolate into a small ziplock bag and cut a tiny piece out of the corner. Drizzle the chocolate onto the cookies & let them dry before placing in a container.
