Key Lime Cookies

2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter, softened
1-1/4 cups granulated sugar
1 egg plus 1 egg yolk
5 tablespoon fresh key lime juice (or substitute regular lime juice)
2 teaspoon grated lime peel
Powdered sugar for sprinkling

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Line cookie sheets with foil.

In medium bowl combine flour, baking powder and salt; set aside. In a large
bowl, cream butter and sugar until fluffy. Add egg and egg yolk, beating
until light and creamy. Beat in lime juice and peel until well mixed. Stir
in the flour mixture until just mixed. Dough will be soft.

Form dough into 1/2 inch balls. If dough is too soft to handle it can be
refrigerated for an hour until it’s firm enough to gently shape into a ball.
Place on prepared cookie sheet and bake until lightly browned, about 10 to
12 minutes. Transfer to wire rack. While still warm, sift powdered sugar
over cookies. Cool completely.

Makes 2 1/2 - 3 dozen cookies.
