Dairy, Egg, & Nut Free Lime Drop Cookies
Yields 15 cookies
1/4 cup dairy free margarine, softened
1/4 cup vegetable shortening
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 lime, juiced and zested
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
3/4 cup confectioners sugar
1 Tbsp lime juice
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or silicone mat.
In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream dairy free margarine, shortening and sugar until light and fluffy. Reserve one tablespoon of lime juice for the icing and add the remaining juice and zest to the mixture. Stir until thoroughly incorporated.
In a separate bowl combine flour and baking powder. Add to the wet ingredients. Mix until the dough just comes together. Using a cookie scooper, drop rounds of dough unto cookie sheet. Lightly flatten the tops without pressing too hard. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until edges are golden brown.
Let cool on baking sheet for a few minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Drizzle with glaze.
To make the glaze:
Combine sugar and reserved lime juice. Mix until you have smooth consistency like that of honey. Pour into a plastic bag and make a slit in the side. Drizzle glaze over cookies.
