I Am Seeing GREEN without the MINT? White Chocolate Lime Cookies

Okay folks......I have an issue here! Is there a law written somewhere that says, "If it's green it has to be mint"? Why does the color green in foods always have to be MINT?

So I set out to find something green that wasn't mint, compiled all my notes, and created these luscious lime cookies.....LIMES are GREEN!!

St. Patrick's Day is one of my favorite holidays because I love the color green. Most of my clothes are green (different shades, of course). Which means I will never be pinched on St. Patrick's Day....I am covered!
I was very happy with the way these cookies turned out. And I am convinced that these cookies should be served at summertime picnics. They are so fluffy and refreshing.....

I had a partial bag of Hershey's white chocolate Bliss, and yup, I chopped them up and they went right into these cookies.

In a separate bowl add the flour, baking soda, and salt. Slowly mix into the wet ingredients.
