Put the Key Lime in the Cookie and you mix it all together!


I love key lime, I've never had anything key lime that I haven't liked.  One of my favorite desserts is Key Lime Pie, and I guess the pie has started my obsession with all things key lime.  I am always looking for new recipes that include key lime so that I can expand my key lime recipes.  I have seen several key lime cookie recipes on websites and blogs, that were of all different varieties. 

I came across a white chocolate chip key lime cookie recipe the other day while looking around the internet and I thought it sounded pretty interesting.  I thought about this recipe for a little bit because I was just wasn't too sure of this combination, I thought it would be good but it was just one of those things that was just a little bit different and a "branch out".  I finally talked myself into making them and while I was mixing them up my mouth started watering.  I tasted a little bit of the batter just to get an idea of what it was like I from that first taste I was addicted!  

When I first tried to get Spencer to taste it he was a little leary of the whole combination.  I waited until the first batch of cookies came out and took him one fresh out of the oven to try.  He ate it, thought about it for a few minutes and decided they were pretty tasty when he came back for another one.  These cookies have been a hit with everyone that has tried them.  If you're a key lime fan I definitely suggest trying these...they are awesome!  


1/2 Cup butter-softened
