White Chocolate Chip Key Lime Island Cookie Recipe

I was inspired by the recipe on the back of the package of white chocolate chips to make this version.  The original recipe, I thought, considered the Island to be Hawaii and I wanted my Island cookies to reflect Key West.  So… I created this White Chocolate Chip Key Lime Island Cookie recipe.  The white chocolate paired with key lime is wonderful and refreshing.  I am quickly transported back to the Island… Key West that is!

Served with a cup of Cuban coffee, this is a great afternoon or early evening snack.  Who am I kidding?  It makes a great breakfast too!

Step 6:

Using a cookie scoop, drop scoops onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake in a 375 degree oven for 8 – 11 minutes; or until edges are lightly browned.  Cool on cookie sheet for 2 minutes.  Remove cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.  Store in an airtight container.
