My house gets (sometimes unbearably) hot whenever I have people over. Guests ‘in the know’ dress appropriately, and my thermostat read 72F on Sunday afternoon even though I had turned the heat off in the morning. But between the temperature and these Chewy Lime and Coconut Cookies which my friend Lee made, I felt like I was on a tropical island.
Lee made a few changes to the recipe, using the zest of two limes and 4 T of lime juice. She also added extra coconut to the batter and then rolled the cookies in a mix of sugar and coconut at the end.
These cookies reminded me of the Margarita Ice Cream sandwiches I made this summer, which is a good thing indeed. So you don’t need to limit these cookies to the holidays, you can make them anytime you want to get away from it all.
