I try to never throw away food and so in that spirit, I realized I had a lime in my fridge that was about to go bad.  I found this recipe for lime cookies and figured what the heck?

With the summer, this is a refreshing little cookie.  There was a mild lime flavor (I only used 1 lime zest but did use the right amount of juice), but I really liked it. 

It’s a bit like a lime shortbread cookie.

I used a small scoop and also found the optional mixture wasn’t enough.  So I used 1 tsp of the nutmeg and 1 tsp of the cinnamon, mixed it, and then dipped the bottom of a small glass to flatten the cookie out.
