Using a KitchenAid cream together the butter and sugar until smooth and very fluffy

Lime time – 3 ways

Then mix in egg, vanilla extract, lime juice, lime zest and don’t forget the best part!
Uplifting Lime Vitality EO is wonderfully aromatic- add 7-10 drops to the mix

 Why Sift?

Bring together baking powder/soda, salt and flour
Shifting ingredients helps to combine them evenly before they are mixed with other ingredients

Mix and blend

While on a low setting, gradually add dry mixture to wet
Don’t get the mixture going too fast or you’ll have a flour frenzy!

Roll and bake

Once combine, roll into small balls and then in sugar. Place 1.5 inches apart on parchment line baking sheet
These beauties only need 8-10 minutes to bake.

While baking…

Use this time to mix together the icing for the cookies. With a fork stir lime juice, powdered sugar and Lime Vitality EO to taste

Set, cool, frost

Make sure your cookies rest a bit to cool before frosting.
This recipe makes approximately 3 dozen cookies
