Ingredients

  • 1 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 2/3 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sweetened desiccated coconut
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 teaspoons grated lime rind
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
Lime Glaze:
  • 2 cups icing sugar
  • 2 teaspoons grated lime rind
  • 1/4 cup lime juice

Method

In large bowl, beat butter with sugar until fluffy; beat in egg and vanilla. Whisk together flour, coconut, cornstarch, lime rind, baking soda and salt; stir into butter mixture in 2 additions. Divide in half; flatten into discs. Wrap each and refrigerate until firm, about 30 minutes.

Between floured waxed paper, roll out each disc to 1/4-inch (5 mm) thickness. Using 2-1/2-inch (6 cm) round cookie cutter, cut out shapes, cutting and rerolling scraps. Place, 1 inch (2.5 cm) apart, on parchment paper–lined baking sheets; freeze just until firm, about 15 minutes.

Bake in 350°F (180°C) oven until firm and edges are golden, 10 to 12 minutes. Transfer to racks; let cool.

Lime Glaze: In small bowl, whisk together icing sugar, lime rind and lime juice; spread scant 1 tsp (5 mL) over each cookie. Let harden.
