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.
White Chocolate Lime Cookies
1/2 c. butter, soft
1/2 c. strawberry Greek yogurt
1/2 c. packed light brown sugar
3/4 c. granulated sugar
1 (3 oz.) package lime jell-o
Juice and zest of 1 lime
10 drops green food coloring
1/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
3 c. bread flour
1 c. white chocolate Hershey's Bliss candy, chopped
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In your mixer, cream together butter, yogurt, and sugars.
Mix in the eggs, jell-o, lime juice, zest, and food coloring.
In a separate bowl add the flour, baking soda, and salt. Slowly mix into the wet ingredients.
Mix in the white chocolate.
Using a large cookie scoop, scoop onto cookie sheets and bake for 12 minutes. Don't let the tops get brown. Let cookies sit on cookie sheets for about 3 minutes before removing to cooling racks to cool completely.
