Cookies for Kids Cancer Cookie Swap 2013
I am honored to participate, for the second year in a row, in the charitable Cookies for Kids Cancer Cookie Swap. Not only is there the opportunity to help support kids fighting cancer but also a chance to share and receive delicious cookies as well as food blogs. Thank you to all the sponsors and fellow cookie swappers!
White Chocolate Chip and Lime Sugar Cookies
1 c. unsalted butter, softened
1 c. white sugar, plus more for coating
1 c. powdered sugar
1 t. vanilla extract
4 c. flour
1 t. baking soda
1 t. cream of tartar
1 t. salt
6 oz. white chocolate chips
1/4 c. lime zest
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Beat together butter, sugars, eggs and vanilla. In a large bowl sift together the flour, baking soda, cream of tartar and salt. While mixing slowly add dry ingredients to wet just until combined, then stir in white chocolate chips and lime zest.
In a shallow dish add enough sugar to cover bottom. Roll cookie dough into small balls and coat with sugar. Place coated cookie balls on a baking sheet and I using a glass with flat bottom press cookies 1/4 inch thick.
Bake just until slightly golden but still soft to the touch about 8 to 10 minutes. Cool on wire rack. Store in air tight container for best results.
