Ingredients

  • FOR THE SUGAR COOKIES:
  • 1 cup All-purpose Flour
  • ¼ teaspoons Baking Soda
  • ⅛ teaspoons Baking Powder
  • ¼ teaspoons Salt
  • 6 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter, At Room Temperature
  • 10 Tablespoons White Granulated Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 2 Tablespoons Fresh Squeezed Lime Juice
  • _____
  • FOR THE FILLING:
  • 4 ounces, weight Cream Cheese, Softened
  • 2 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter, Softened
  • 1-½ cup Confectioners Sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons Blueberry Paste [recipe Below]
  • _____
  • FOR THE BLUEBERRY PASTE:
  • ½ cups Fresh Blueberries
  • 2 Tablespoons Water
  • 3 Tablespoons Granulated Sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon Fresh Lime Juice
  • ½ teaspoons Cornstarch

Preparation

Recipe makes 15 sandwiches if you make them the same size as my photo.

Lime Sugar Cookies
In a medium bowl, sift flour, baking soda and powder, and salt. Set aside

In a larger bowl, cream the butter and sugar thoroughly untill fluffy. To this add the lime juice and vanilla and beat until combined.

To the butter sugar mix, add the flour mix and gently combine with a spatula to bring together into a dough. You might need to add a Tablespoon or more of milk at this stage if needed, in order to make a soft dough.

Divide the dough into 2 small balls. Take a piece of plastic cling film, put a dough ball on it and flatten with palm to make a disc. Wrap the disc with plastic cling film. Repeat the same with second dough ball. Chill both discs for about 30 minutes.

Line your cookie sheet with parchment paper.Avoid using aluminium foil as the extreme heat will burn the cookies from the bottom.

After chilling the dough, take one disc out, unwrap it and place it between two sheets of parchment paper. Initially, you may find it little difficult to roll because it is chilled. It will soften as you go along.

Roll the disc using a floured rolling-pin into a sheet about 1/2″ thick. Using a floured round cookie cutter cut the cookies from the rolled dough.

Using a floured thin spatula, transfer the cookies to the lined cookie sheet.

Preheat the oven to 350F. Chill the cut cookies again for 15 minutes.

Once chilled, bake cookies in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes until the sides start turning brown. Cool completely on a cooling rack.

Blueberry Paste:
Tip the blueberries, water and sugar into a small sauce pan. Cook on low heat until the blueberries are soft and mushy. Transfer to a blender. Blend on high to form a puree. Dissolve cornstarch into the lime juice. Transfer the puree back into the sauce pan again and add cornstarch mix. Cook on very low heat for about 5-8 minutes until you get a thick paste. Cool completely before adding to the filling mixture.

Blueberry Cream Filling:
Make the filling by beating the cream cheese and butter with an electric mixer. Mix in powdered sugar until smooth. Add 2 Tablespoons of the cooled blueberry paste above to make a smooth mix.

Assembly:

Pipe or spread 1-2 tablespoons of blueberry filling onto the center of the bottom side of one cookie. Top with a second cookie and press together until the filling reaches the edges of the cookies. Store in an airtight box for up to 3 days.

These were great! I made them with blackberry instead of blueberry, and also added lime zest (in both the cookie and the icing). YUM!

Right after making them, the cookies were a bit too hard and the icing too soft. However, after a night in the fridge, the cookies softened and the icing thickened up and they were AMAZING. YUM!

After eating a delicious lime-glazed scone with pistachios from a coffee bar in Phoenix, I saw this recipe and immediately printed it out to make. These were relatively easy and fun to make. Fun because I had never made a paste for cookies before. It was like making oreo cookies. I added extra lime zest only because I hate to waste good lime and I love the bright taste. The cookies were out of this world. I froze three and took them through a canyon in Arizona and shared them with my friends and we all scarfed them down. Thank you for sharing this recipe.
