Is there anything more lovely than the fragrant marriage between almonds and limes? Maybe. (Especially if you're a chocolate fan.) But sometimes you just need something refreshing, perky, and light.
These cookies are fluffy, edible pillows of bliss. They receive their almond love from a healthy dose of extract, but the next time I make this recipe (and there will be a next time), I would love to use almond meal in place of cake flour. As I was preparing the cookies, the limes spoke to me, in their adorable limey way, and said that they had fallen madly in love with almonds and wished to see more of them in the future.
Who am I to deny a cookie, or true love?
If you are craving a little bit of summer in the middle of the holiday rush, I think you will adore these spritely cookies. (It goes without saying that I could live on limes and lemons all year round.) :D
