I am back with one of my most favorite things to bake….cookies! Cornmeal & Lime Cookies are perfect for any BBQ, taco night, or special event that you have. They are slightly sweet with a zing of lime and the perfect amount of white chocolate drizzled on top to finish them off.
The idea for these cookies came when my family did a taco/Mexican lunch for my mom for mothers day. My brother makes the most insanely delicious food in general but my favorite thing he cooks is tacos! He also made a boozy sorbet to have for dessert so I wanted to make something light and not overly sweet to eat with the sorbet and to go along with the Mexican theme.
And so the Cornmeal & Lime Cookies were born!
These begin just like all cookies - creaming your butter and sugar together until light and fluffy.
Then you will add you eggs, mix until combined. Next up, add in the flour, cornmeal, baking powder, salt, lime zest,
I wanted another element of texture to the cookies, so once you scoop your dough out into a ball, roll around in white sugar and then place on a baking tray. These cookies are so soft on the inside but the sugar coating gives it this slight crunch that you will love!
Another good thing about these cookies?! No chilling time! Which is my favorite! And if you’re like me and don’t like to wait for your cookies to chill either, then you HAVE to make my No Chill Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies. They are my go
Once the Cornmeal Cookies have baked and cooled, it’s time for the white chocolate drizzle. When melting white chocolate you want to go low and slow - so you can start this while the cookies are baking so it will be ready by the time they are cool.
In a small saucepan, fill half way up with water and place on the stove on medium to medium-low heat. Place white chocolate chips or a bar in a glass bowl that fits over
With a spoon, drizzle the melted white chocolate over the cookies and then finish by zesting a lime over the top for another pop of flavor and color!
Wha-laa! You are done and have the perfect dessert to bring to your next Taco Tuesday dinner party, fiesta or any backyard BBQ cookout this summer!

My favorite cookie making hack!
I do this 90% of the time I make cookies. Mostly because my husband is a cookie monster and I don't want to bake a whole batch just for the 2 of us.
- Once you have made your cookie dough, scoop onto a baking tray. The entire batch.
- Then place in the freezer for 30 - 60 minutes until the cookie dough balls are frozen.
- Transfer to a freezer safe ziplock bag and
wha- laa! You have cookies on hand any time you want!
- You can bake 1 or all of them at no extra hassle to you. Just bake 1-2 minutes longer than the direction time depending on your oven.
Now you know my secret cookie hack for always being able to have hot and fresh cookies when my sweet hubby wants some, we have guest over for an easy dessert or I need to take a dessert someplace. It's easy, time savng and of course so delicious!Print
