Lime & White Chocolate Chewy Cookies

There is nothing more refreshing to me in the summer than the taste of lime.  Very often, it is incorporated into a summer drinks.  I was curious to see how it would liven up a cookie. I came across this recipe from My Baking Addiction.  I took out the toasted coconut in their recipe and added white chocolate chips.  Cookies are an easy thing to bring along on picnics or road trips,  I hope you include it with your summer travel plans. This makes about three dozen cookies which means you can take two dozen with you and leave the rest at home for your family to fight over.
