Key Lime White Chocolate Chip Cookies

Key Lime White Chocolate Chip Cookies

After a weekend trip to Sarasota, we found ourselves with a pound of fresh key limes in the back seat. With them, we whipped up this batch of soft Key Lime White Chocolate Chip cookies. These didn't last very long... always a good sign :)

Soft Key Lime White Chocolate Chip Cookies, adapted from Cookie Madness


1 stick unsalted butter, room temperature

1 cup granulated sugar

1 large egg + 1 large yolk, room temperature

1 1/2 cup all purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt

1/4 cup freshly squeezed key lime juice

1 1/2 teaspoons key lime zest

3/4 cup white chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper, and set aside.

In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the butter and sugar together until creamy. Then, add the egg and yolk. Beat.

In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and sea salt to combine. Turn the mixer to low and add the flour mixture.

Next, add the lime juice and zest. Add the chocolate chips and mix until just combined (do not over mix).

Roll dough until 1 to 1 1/2 inch balls and arrange on parchment lined baking sheets approximately 2 1/2 inches apart. Bake for around 10 - 12 minutes or until edges just barely begin to brown.
