Lemon Lime Butter Cookies

I'm probably in the minority, but I get tired of too much rich stuff and like something with a clean, bright taste when I've eaten too many chocolate things. I figured since I was sending a box of butter and sugar to the office, it might be nice for them to have something like that. Kind of a palate cleanser before moving on to the bourbon balls.

I adapted these from my Fine Cooking "Cookies" book. They're just the right amount of tart and sweet with a nice butter undertone that doesn't rub out the lemon and lime flavor.

I also like these because they were log cookies. Mix the dough, shape them into logs, roll them in sugar, wrap them in plastic and chuck them in the fridge for a couple of hours. Or freeze them and keep them on hand for a few months. When you're ready, cut them and bake them and you're done.

If you'd like to add them to your holiday baking repertoire, here is the .pdf.
