I’m back!!!

The past few weeks have been crazy. First I got sick, then I got sicker until finally I was bedridden for way too long. While my appetite never went anywhere, big surprise, my motivation to cook was nowhere to be found. But a girl can only eat so much soup and so many pb&j’s before enough is enough. I don’t even need to say that it’s so great to be back and healthy. Though it is usually non-existent, my sweet-tooth was out in full-force while I was sick and I couldn’t stop thinking about cookies! So, with that said, for my first post back in too long…

White Chocolate Lime Cookies

cookies from Have Cake, Will Travel


  • 1/2 c butter (dairy or non)
  • 3/4 c sugar
  • Zest of 1 Lime
  • Juice of 1 Lime (~2 t)
  • 1 t Vanilla Extract
  • 1 1/2 c Flour
  • 1/2 t Baking Powder
  • 1/2 t Baking Soda
  • 1/2 t Sea Salt
  • 1/4 c White Chocolate Chips
  • 2-3 T Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper.

With an electric mixer, cream together butter and sugar. Add in lime juice, zest and vanilla extract.

In another bowl sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

Fold in dry ingredients to wet. Add Almond milk as needed. Fold in chocolate chips.

Scoop up a Tablespoon or so of dough. Flatten a bit but leave room between cookies as they will spread a bit.

Bake for 12-14 minutes until golden brown.

After 2 minutes, transfer to a cooling rack.

Makes ~20 Cookies

  5. Cookies are a definitely sickness cure! I've never seen citrus and white chocolate together but I'm a fan of both separately which leads me to believe I'd love both together! :)

  8. SHANNON. I missed you so much and was SO worried about you! Glad you're better my love!

    You know, I'm willing to bet all the vitamin C in those limes helped to cure you. Don'tcha think? The cookies sound fabulous!
