Key Lime Pie Cookies

  • ¼ cup key lime juice, freshly squeezed
  • 2 tsp key lime zest
  • 1 tsp lime or lemon extract *
  • 2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 1 tsp coarse sea salt
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup dairy-free white chocolate chips


Key Lime Pie Cookies

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper.

  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer with the paddle attachment cream the butter and sugar on high for 2 minutes until light and fluffy. Scrape down the sides of the bowl when neccessary.

  3. Add in egg, key lime juice, zest, and lime or lemon extract and mix on high for another 2 minutes.

  4. Add in flour, graham cracker crumbs, salt, and baking soda into the bowl and mix on low until fully incorporated and a dough forms.

  5. Mix in the white chocolate chips until just incorporated. Be careful not to overmix.

  6. Using a 1 ½ tbsp. cookie scoop drop the cookie dough onto the parchment-lined cookie trays approximately 2 inches apart and bake for 8-10 minutes or until the edges are just barely light golden brown and the centers appear slightly under-baked. **

  7. Let the cookies cool on the tray for 10 minutes before removing them to a cookie rack to fully cool. Enjoy!

  8. Store leftover cookies in an airtight container for up to 7 days.


* If you do not have either extract you can either omit entirely or add in vanilla.

** If you prefer a flatter cookie, genlty press down on the top of each cookie with a flat-bottomed glass when they are hot and fresh out of the oven.
