Limeade Crescents

Breads & Desserts


1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/4 cup corn starch
1 cup salted butter, softened to room temperature
1 tablespoon lime zest
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice

For the glaze
1 1/4 cups sifted powdered sugar plus additional powdered sugar for dusting
1 teaspoon lime zest
2 to 3 tablespoons lime juice


Sift flour, powdered sugar, and cornstarch together and set aside.
Using an electric mixer beat the butter until creamy. Add the zest and the juice. Add the flour mixture and beat at medium-low speed until a smooth dough forms.
Divide the dough in half and on a lightly floured surface shape each piece into a 10-inch log. Wrap up the logs and chill for 2 hours.
Heat oven to 350 degrees.
Slice the dough into 1/2-inch pieces and form into crescent shapes.
Place cookies 1–inch apart on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes or until the edges are golden.
Cool cookies on a wire rack.
Mix the glaze ingredients together. When the cookies are completely cooled dip the tops into the glaze and place on a rack set over parchment paper. Let cookie glaze harden completely then dust 
with additional powdered sugar, if desired.
