So here is another story about my inability to order correctly from instacart. Limes???? I said 3 limes……I got three bags. White Chocolate Pistachio Lime Cookies for the win!
Full of zesty lime flavor, a touch of white chocolate, and the crunch of pistachios.
Summertime brings thoughts of cool refreshing treats: Lemon, lime, anything fresh and cool when the heat soars. This past week was a scorcher. 90’s each and every day; It can almost ruin your appetite!
Notice I said almost. I love sweets, whether for dessert or a snack. These cookies fit both.
Easy to mix together and chill in no time, they can be ready in around 30 minutes.
My KitchenAid is one of my prized kitchen appliances. I don’t even know how long I’ve had it, but it has been lovingly used for a long, long time. A stand mixer makes cakes and cookies so easy to prepare. If you have the means, I highly suggest one.
Looking for a sweet treat to stick in a picnic basket, or just a snack to have on hand White Chocolate Pistachio Lime Cookie may well become your new summer favorite.Print
