Key lime cookies

I love all things Key Lime. 
I live about 8 hours from Key West, and believe me, it is WORTH the drive to get all of that key lime goodness in your life. 

Key lime margaritas.
Key lime pie. 
Key lime rum cake.
Key lime marinated shrimp.
Key lime cookies!

Since we didn’t visit our islands to the south this summer, I figured I needed to whip up something with these tart little gems. While I was at the farmer’s market a few days ago, a beautiful bag of key limes caught my eye! They’ve been sitting on my counter ever since, just begging to be squeezed!

So I squeezed them. And here’s what came out. 😉


These cookies are DELICIOUS! They are made with a variety of gluten free flours, honey, and coconut oil. If you love all things Key Lime (like I do!), you’ll love these!
