2 teaspoons lime zest
1 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda

Glaze:
2 tablespoons lime juice
1/4 cup confectioners' sugar

Recipe Directions for Lime Tea Cookies

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Combine the 2 teaspoons of lime juice with the milk, let stand for 5 minutes.
