Easy Shortbread Cookies (Lime Squiggles) with Claire Saffitz | Dessert Person
These cookies are a style of shortbread called meltaways, so named because the addition of cornstarch to the buttery dough reduces gluten development and makes them melt-in-your-mouth tender. Aside from the cornstarch, though, these are not typical meltaways. I supplement the butter with cream cheese, which adds extra tang on top of the lime juice and zest, andI coat the finished cookie in a lime glaze rather than the usual confectioner’s sugar. Follow along to make these easy Shortbread Lime Squiggle Cookies.
