One of my favorite pairings recently has been bright, citrusy lime and sweet, creamy white chocolate. There’s just something about it that brings warm, sunny thoughts to mind. That, and it tastes so good! These white chocolate lime cookies are no exception.
The cookies start with the essential trait of all good cookies. . .they’re soft and chewy! A hint of lime and lots of white chocolate are added. If you want a stronger lime flavor, a bit of fresh lime zest would work perfectly to boost the flavor without altering the texture.
Dunk them in milk or eat them plain. Either way, you’ll find these cookies disappearing quickly! The sweet, citrusy flavor is impossible to resist!
