I’m back!!!

The past few weeks have been crazy. First I got sick, then I got sicker until finally I was bedridden for way too long. While my appetite never went anywhere, big surprise, my motivation to cook was nowhere to be found. But a girl can only eat so much soup and so many pb&j’s before enough is enough. I don’t even need to say that it’s so great to be back and healthy. Though it is usually non-existent, my sweet-tooth was out in full-force while I was sick and I couldn’t stop thinking about cookies! So, with that said, for my first post back in too long…

White Chocolate Lime Cookies

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 c butter (dairy or non)
  • 3/4 c sugar

  • 1/2 t Baking Powder

  • 2-3 T Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper.

With an electric mixer, cream together butter and sugar. Add in lime juice, zest and vanilla extract.

In another bowl sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

Fold in dry ingredients to wet. Add Almond milk as needed. Fold in chocolate chips.

Scoop up a Tablespoon or so of dough. Flatten a bit but leave room between cookies as they will spread a bit.

  1. Hurrah for feeling better! If only you could’ve appreciated the cookies when you were bedridden – would’ve made it so much more pleasant for you!

    You know, I’m willing to bet all the vitamin C in those limes helped to cure you. Don’tcha think? The cookies sound fabulous!
