Basil Lime Cookies

Here’s another Pinterest find.

I absolutely LOVE this website if you can’t tell!!

When I first read this blog post, I really wasn’t sure how these

lime basil cookies were going to turn out. Let me tell you I’m so glad I made them

because they are pretty amazing!! Matter of fact when I came home from work today

my husband & daughter had eaten all but one. If you are planning on

eating any, you may want to hide them. 😉


1 stick unsalted butter at room temperature
6 ounces (3/4 cup plus 1 tbsp) sugar
1 egg
1/2 tsp vanilla
Zest of 1 lime
3 tbsp very finely chopped fresh basil leaves
7 ounces (1 3/4 cup) flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt

Pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees & line the cookie sheet with a silicone mat or parchment paper.
In a stand mixer (or hand-held mixer) cream together the butter & sugar until light & fluffy.
Mix in the egg, vanilla, zest, & basil. Mix together until fully combined.
In a separate bowl sift together the flour, baking soda, & salt. Then mix into the butter mixture until combined.
Roll 1 tbsp of dough to make a little sphere. Repeat with remaining dough. Place about 1 inch apart on the cookie sheets. Bake 8 to 12 minutes, depending on the size of your cookies/ oven.
Allow to cool.
