Melt-in-your mouth buttery cookies with a citrus lime frosting...super easy recipe perfect for spring, summer, and all year!


  • 1 cup butter
  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  • 1 ½ teaspoons lime juice
  • ½ cup cornstarch
  • 1⅔ cup flour


  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • Juice of two limes
  • Lime zest
  • 2-4 tablespoons milk
  • Dash of salt


  • Cream the butter and sugar, then add the rest of the cookie ingredients and mix well. It will be a thick dough. Roll the dough into small balls, the place on a cookie sheet. Use a glass to flatten the cookies, then bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes, or until the tops start to crack. Edges could be slightly browned, but they won't necessarily be. Let cool completely before frosting.
  • To make the frosting, beat the butter, lime juice, lime zest, and dash of salt until creamy, then add the powdered sugar and mix well. Add the milk a little at a time until you get a smooth and creamy consistency. Frost cooled cookies, and sprinkle with lime zest.


*You can make this into any kind of citrus cookie...just replace the lime with lemon or even orange!
