Method Prep:20min › Cook:13min › Ready in:33min
Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas mark 4. Lightly grease 2 large baking trays.
Stir together flour, baking powder, salt, 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon in a bowl; set aside. Combine 60g sugar, 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg and 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon in a separate bowl; set aside.
Cream together butter, 200g sugar and lime rind in a large bowl until light and fluffy. Gradually beat in lime juice, then the flour mixture, a little bit at a time. Form the biscuit mixture into walnut-sized balls and roll in spiced sugar mixture. Arrange on prepared trays, about 2cm apart from each other. Flatten the balls slightly using your hand or the the bottom of a glass.
Bake in the preheated oven until the edges turn golden, about 13 to 16 minutes. Cool biscuits on wire racks, then store in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
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
