Lime Thumbprint cookies


Hello! These were very tasty! I made them last year and made a couple of changes to the original recipe to suit my tatste. I will list the recipe I used:


Cookie:


1/2 cup butter, soft

1/4 cup sugar

1 egg yolk

1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

1 1/4 cup flour

1/4 tsp. salt

powder sugar to garnish


Filling:


1/3 cup sugar

3-4 tasp lime juice

1 egg yolk

2-3 drops green food coloring


Pre-heat oven to 325*.

Cream together: butter, sugar, yolk & vanilla.

Add flour and salt, blend in well.

Shape into one inch balls.

Arrange about 1 inch apart on non-stick, foil lined cookie sheet.

Make an indent on each cookie with your thumb.

Spoon 1/2 tsp. of filling onto each cookie.

Bake for 12 to 15 minutes....remove from pan and let cool.
Sprinkle with powdered sugar.


Filling:

Combine 1st 4 ingredients in a sauce pan, heat over medium until it reaches a boil. Stir occasionally. Remove from heat & stir in food coloring. Set aside to cool.


You can also use this cookie recipe with your favorite jam instead of the lime filling!
