  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a medium bowl, cream together the butter and confectioners' sugar until smooth. Mix in the egg, lime juice and lime zest. Mixture may appear curdled, but that's okay. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; stir into the lime mixture until well blended. Drop batter by teaspoonfuls into the cornflake crumbs. Place cookies 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets.
  3. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven, until edges are golden. Remove from cookie sheets to cool on wire racks.

I only give these cookies a 4 because of their looks. The taste was great, I used frosted flakes instead of regular & fresh squeezed lime juice. They were gone the same day I cooked them. Fam...

While these were a good idea, with good flavor, the texture just seemed off somehow. My friends that I made them with all thought they seemed a little too crunchy. We were thinking that if we ro...
