    In large bowl, stir together cookie mix and lime peel until blended. Add butter, egg and lime juice. Beat with electric mixer on medium-low speed until blended and soft dough forms.
  • 2
    On 17-inch piece plastic wrap, shape dough into 12-inch log. Wrap tightly; freeze at least 30 minutes or until firm enough to slice.
  • 3
    Heat oven to 375°F. Unwrap dough; cut into 1/4-inch slices. Onto ungreased cookie sheets, place slices 2 inches apart, reshaping if necessary; lightly sprinkle with salt.

    Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until pale brown on bottom. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks. Cool completely before storing in airtight container. If desired, garnish cookies with freshly grated lime peel just before serving.

Expert Tips

  • Dough can be made up to 2 days ahead. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
  • For easier handling, make sure dough remains cold before baking. If necessary, return dough to freezer or refrigerator until chilled.
