In the cookie dough itself, there is butter, of course, along with cream cheese, and both grated key lime peel and fresh key lime juice, among other ingredients. The cream cheese combined with the butter gives the cookie a richness you will love. A touch of green food coloring gives a hint of the cookie’s citrus flavor.

The powdered sugar topping adds another element of richness and color to these award-winning key lime delights. The topping features finely chopped dried pineapple and mango, as well as more juice and lime peel. The topping’s viscosity can be thick and frosting-like. However, you could add extra fresh key lime juice to thin it out to your preferred consistency.
