Lime Crinkle Cookies

These are from Taste of the South magazine which we've found to be a great source for simple, tasty recipes. Rose says these remind her of Fruit Loops. They are just plain good.

Lime Crinkle Cookies

Step 1
1 cup sugar
1/2  cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled for 10 minutes
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 large egg + 1 large egg yolk, room temperature
2 tablespoons lime zest
2 tablespoons lime juice

Whisk together sugar, butter, and vanilla until well combined.

Whisk in egg and yolk. Beat in zest and lime juice. (May look slightly curdled; it’s ok.)

Step 2
2 cups flour
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ginger

Sift all together and add to sugar mixture in two additions, folding until well combined. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

Step 3
1/3 granulated sugar
1/2 cup powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 325° and line jelly roll pans with parchment paper. Put sugars in separate bowls.

Shape dough into 1” balls. Roll in granulated sugar, then roll in powdered sugar.

Place 2 inches apart on baking sheets. Bake 10-12 minutes, until edges are set and cracks have formed. Cool completely on pans.
