Easy and yummy Glazed Lime Bars are the perfect spring and summer dessert! These citrus cookie bars are also chock full of white chocolate chips.
Glaze Lime Bars
Citrus is the epitome of summer, and I love it in all forms. These Glazed Lime Bars are thick and rich and buttery, with a slightly tart lime glaze that is out of this world. When I make these, they disappear very quickly!
They stack up perfectly in clear treat bags if you want to drop them by for a friend or neighbor. They’re perfect for taking with you to a party or BBQ. If you’re looking for a dessert for a wedding or baby shower, look no more! They taste as good as they look! These are the kind of bars that I can only make if I’m going to take them somewhere, because otherwise, I’m tempted to eat the whole pan. ☺
Even better, they’re a cinch to put together. Honestly! I can whip these up in about 10 minutes (or less), and while they’re baking, you can make the glaze and get it ready to go.
I like my bars to be on the thicker side, so I used a 9×9 baking dish. You could definitely use a 9×13 dish if you want them a little thinner (and it would make more) but you would need to reduce the baking time.
Glazed Lime Bars
- 1 c. butter unsalted
- ½ c. white sugar
- ½ c. brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 2 ¼ c. flour
- ¾ teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoon grated lime peel about 3 limes
- 2 c. white chocolate chips
- 1/4 c. butter melted
- 1 1/2 c. powdered sugar (icing sugar)
- 1 tablespoon lime juice
Mix butter and sugar until creamy. Beat in egg. Add the rest of the dry ingredients and mix well. When you get a dough consistency, mix in the lime peel and chocolate by hand. Press into a 9x9 baking dish that's been sprayed with cooking spray. (I use Baker's Joy!) Bake 20-25 minutes at 350 degrees until they're lightly browned. Cool, then top with the glaze. Once the glaze has hardened, cut into bars.
To make the glaze, combine all the ingredients and mix well.
