Lime Infused Sugar Cookies

A couple months ago, my good friend Rebecca gave me an amazing cookie cutter. It is star shaped, with a cut-out, so you can rest your cookie on the edge of your coffee or tea cup. I finally gave it a test drive today, when making a batch of delightful citrusy cookies. The recipe below is a take on the cut-out sugar cookie recipe that I posted back in December.

Cut-Out Sugar Cookies
1 cup vegan butter (or 1/2 cup vegan butter and 1/2 cup vegetable shortening)
1 cup sugar
5 tbsp soy yogurt

zest of 1 lime
2 tbsp lime juice

3 1/2 cups white flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

Cream the butter and sugar. When light and fluffy, add the yogurt, zest, and juice and beat to combine. Mix in the dry ingredients and mix until a dough forms. Refrigerate the dough for at least an hour.
When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Roll out half the dough on a lightly floured surface to 1/8 inch thickness. Cut into desired shapes. Bake 7-8 minutes or until very lightly browned. Cool on a wire rack. Repeat with remaining dough. Decorate as desired. Makes about 5 dozen 2 1/2 inch cookies. Store in an airtight container.

    I wanted to tell you when I read this last week that I really liked the picture that goes with this. You are definitely improving. Keep up the good work (and feel free to send me cookies if you need someone to eat them ;-) )
