These are basically lime sugar cookies – very unique and easy! Serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or, if so inclined, a cold shot of very good Tequila as a fun dessert or party treat for St. Patrick’s day…or any day. 

Cookies 

  • 1 cup all-purpose organic flour
  • 1 ¼ cup organic Almond flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 ¼ cups granulated organic white sugar
  • 1/3 cup Fresh Harvest Persian Lime olive oil
  • 2 large organic eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Food quality green dye (15 drops)
  • Green sugar sprinkles (optional)

Preheat the oven to 350 F.

In a medium sized bowl, combine the flours, baking soda, baking powder, and salt with a whisk and mix well. Set aside.

In a large bowl or stand mixer, cream the sugar and the olive oil. If mixing by hand use a whisk or hand mixer until well blended.

Add in the eggs, one at a time, followed by the vanilla, and blend well. Now add 15 drops of green food coloring and mix until well blended. Fold the dry mixture into the wet mixture until a dough forms. The dough will be slightly oily and a bit sticky

Scoop out about 2 tablespoons worth of the dough, roll into a ball (or use a dough scoop). Set dough balls on non-stick baking sheet and press lightly down. Continue until all of the dough is gone. Sprinkle with green sugar before baking (optional).

Bake for 14-18 minutes until the edges are golden. These are a bit better when cooked just a bit longer rather than a bit shorter. Allow to cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack.

Try this recipe with any of our citrus oils: blood orange, lemon, etc…
