Best Ever

.Yes I like to stack my cookies.

Love is the only was to describe it. These cookies make me feel all warm and gooey inside just like them. They taste so good I want to go hand them out to strangers. They taste so good I want to go feed them to the multiple homeless drug addicts downtown. However with their addictive personalities they're bound to get addicted. Then I'm put in an awkward position of making them constantly or most likely getting my life threatened with dirty needles and rusty blades in order to supply them with unlimited quantities. Hmm, maybe I won't hand them out to drug addicts. Maybe I'll just hand them out to friendly individuals. Anyways, MAKE THESE!!!

 P.s. These gems also double as a love potion. Any man who tastes these will be putty in your hands. Or any woman ofcourse, if your a boy baker.

White Chocolate Lime Cookies

1/2 cup (128 g) nondairy butter
3/4 cup (144 g) raw sugar
Zest of 1 lime, about 1 tablespoon
2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups (204 g) all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
1/3 cup (50 g) nondairy white chocolate chips
2 to 3 tablespoon(s) (15 to 30 ml) coconut milk or other nondairy milk

*1/4 shredded unsweetened coconut**(optional)

Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C, or gas mark 4). Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats, such as Silpat.
With an electric mixer, cream together butter and sugar. Stir in zest, juice, extract.
In a medium bowl, sift flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
Fold dry ingredients into wet. Add milk, as needed. Fold in chips and coconut if using.
Scoop up 1 1/2 to 2 tablespoons worth of dough. Flatten a little, as the cookies don’t spread a lot while baking.
Bake for 12 minutes, until the edges of the cookies are golden brown. If you want a soft gooey chewy cookie, bake for about 9-10 minutes. 
Wait 2 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.

Yield: 20 medium cookies
