And yet I try anyway. Which leads us to no-bake key lime meltaways with just a little baking!
- 1½ c. prepared sugar cookies, crumbled
- ⅔ c. unsalted butter, softened (not melted)
- 1½ c. powdered sugar
- 3 Tbsp. key lime juice
- zest of 2 key limes
- 3-4 key limes, sliced, for garnish (optional)
Start by baking and crumbling your 1 1/2 cups of sugar cookies according to package. Or I suppose you can buy pre-crumbled cookies somewhere.
Stars: This one got around 4 stars. One odd thing was that I had a ton of zest in my bars, which the original pictures don't show at all. That much zest didn't do great things for the texture. Then, the flavor was just a smidgen off somehow, but I'm not entirely sure how. I think the topping ingredient ratio needed a bit of adjustment, but that's probably just something you'd need to play with until you got to your personal preference. All in all, they were good, and I keep sneaking them from my fridge, so 4 stars it is!
