Welcome to Tasty Tuesdays!
This recipe is one I have been holding onto for a few months now. I ripped the recipe out of the December 2011 issue of Shape Magazine.
Ingredients for cookies:
- 2 cups white whole- wheat flour
- 1⁄2 tsp baking soda
- 1⁄4 tsp salt
- 1⁄2 cup turbinado sugar
- 1⁄3 cup olive oil
- 1 large egg, lightly beaten
- 2 Tbs honey
- 2 tsp finely grated lime zest
Ingredients for glaze:
- 1/2 cup confectioners sugar
- 2 to 3 tsp of fresh lime juice
- 1/2 tsp lime zest
1. In a small bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
2. In a large bowl, beat sugar, olive oil, egg, and honey with an electric mixer for 2 minutes. Stir in lime zest and flour mixture until combined (it will be somewhat sticky). On a floured work surface, form dough into a log about 8 inches long and 1 1⁄2 inches in diameter; wrap in wax paper and refrigerate for 15 minutes or until firm.
3. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Line a large baking sheet (or two smaller ones) with parchment paper or silicone liners)
4. Slice the chilled dough into 1⁄4-inch-thick rounds, place on prepared baking sheet, and bake for about 8 minutes or until lightly browned. Let cool 5 minutes on sheet; transfer to a wire rack placed over wax paper and cool completely.
5. In a small bowl, mix together confectioners sugar, lime juice, and lime zest. Add more juice if necessary to thin glaze. Drizzle over cooled cookies and let set for 15 minutes.
I enjoyed these cookies. I don't know if it's my imagination, but I thought they tasted even better the next day. They have a nice mild flavor and aren't too sweet. I loved the glaze - it tastes just like lime aid, yum.
