I was sent some tasty cookies over the weekend and they are almost all gone. I think one way to win my heart with food is to add lime. These cookies were good to begin with, but with the addition of lime, they became really good. Made from scratch and lime...you can't beat that. Some of the cookies even have corn flakes baked onto them. Yum!
So think about that...lime making everything better. The cookies, your gin and tonic, the Limon in Sprite - everything better.

Lime makes Mexican better too. Don't forget the Mexican.

while i've long supported the wide and varied use of lime in cooking, using it in cookies never would have occurred to me. and those are chocolate chip, right?

and yes chris, they are chocolate chip. even the ones with the corn flakes are chocolate chip.

YUM - those look delectable. The added corn flakes and lime sound like something Shannan would do. She once made cookies with pancake batter. They were hmmm interesting...
Christina has decreed that she is only allowed to make pumpkin roll - from a can. It is actually extremely delicious, and dear shannan, if you are reading, I am looking forward to eating it on Thanksgiving.

those cookies do look like something someone like myself would make up with lime rind and lime juice. and i dont know why i need to stand up for my delicious pancake/cookie with a hint of coffee candy.
sometimes, you just need to get a little creative. hm.. maybe next time i will add some mexican condiments to my next inventive cookie.
