Recipe by: savingdessert.com

Servings: 42 cookies

Ingredients

1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
2/3 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla bean paste or pure vanilla extract
juice of 1/2 fresh lime
zest of 1 small lime
dash of salt
2 cups plus 2 tablespoons unbleached all-purpose flour
1/2 - 2/3 cup Lemon Curd, homemade or store bought For the glaze:
1 cup confectioners' sugar
juice of 1/2 fresh lime

Instructions
  1. Combine the butter, granulated sugar, vanilla bean paste, salt, lime zest and the juice of 1/2 a lime in a large mixing bowl. Beat on medium speed until the mixture is creamy. Scrape down the sides of the mixing bowl with a spatular and blend again. Reduce the speed to low and add the flour in 3 parts. Scrape the sides and blend another 30 seconds. Cover the mixing bowl and refrigerate the dough for 1 hour.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Shape the dough into 1-inch balls and place 2-inches apart on the prepared pan. Make an indention in the center of each cookie with a small finger - pushing straight down trying not to flatten the dough ball. The edges of the dough may crack slightly. Push the cracked dough back together to make a smooth ball. Filled each ball with a heaping 1/4 teaspoon of lemon curd. READ MORE
