Would make this again.
I made these last year and they were voted the best cookie (I usually make 6-8 different kinds each holiday). I will definitely make them again this year! 5 stars

Would not make this again.
This cookie wasn't as flavorfull as I thought it would be. If I try it again, I'll use more lime juice and lime zest 3 stars

Would make this again.
These came out great. I rolled some in coconut and that made the look of them even better. I also added a bit more lime juice and zest. 5 stars
