These biscuits originate from Guyana. They taste like citrus shortbread but are rolled in cinnamon sugar before being baked.
Needed To make something quick for my daughter s guide camp and needed to use up my home grown limes. Took no time to make and as stated, really easy, my young daughter could Make them. Tasted sweet but with light refreshing taste. My daughter moaned as I had not made chocolate cookies but once she tasted them she was converted. I may put a little icing on them to make them fun also. Great recipe now a favourite 😊 - 10 Jun 2016
Outstanding, refreshing and uniquely flavored cookie, unlike anything I've ever had before. You can taste both the lime and the nutmeg (a spice I generally don't care for) yet the two combine and blend to create a delicious flavor all its own. Be careful not to overbake these - -you don't want them brown around the edges. Once the cookies have set and are just beginning to turn color along the edge they're done! Any longer than that and you'd more than likely end up with an overly crunchy cookie. Beautiful cookie too, all light and sparkly with its sugar/nutmeg finish. I can't remember the last time I enjoyed something so different so much. I will make them again for sure, and I won't change a thing! - 19 Dec 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
OMG! What a delicious little cookie- light, crispy, buttery, slightly spiced, and sweet with a nice touch of lime! It's almost like a shortbread cookie, but not quite. I love the pairing of lime and nutmeg. Who would have thought those two flavors would blend so well together in a cookie! When it came to the spiced sugar mixture to dip the cookie into I used turbinado sugar vs. white sugar just to add a little extra crunch on top. I'm so glad I stumbled upon this recipe. It's definitely different and something I'd be happy to make again. - 18 Jun 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
