Basil Lime Cookies
Borrowed from: Big Fat Baker
- 1 stick unsalted butter at room temperature
- 3/4 cup plus 1 tbsp sugar
- 1 egg
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 1/4 tsp almond extract
- Zest of 1 lime
- 3 tbsp very finely chopped fresh basil leaves (I used a wee bit more here)
- 1 3/4 cup flour
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
Pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit and line the cookie sheets with a silicone mat or parchment paper.
In a stand mixer (or hand-held mixer) cream together the butter and sugars until light and fluffy.
Mix in the egg, vanilla, zest, and basil. Mix together until fully combined.
In a separate bowl sift together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Then mix into the butter mixture until combined.
Roll 1 tbsp of dough to make a little sphere. Repeat with remaining dough. Place about 1 inch apart on the cookie sheets.
Bake 8 to 12 minutes, depending on the size of your cookies/oven. Allow to cool on a cooling rack for a few minutes then watch how fast they disappear!
