Lime-Graham Tea Cookies


Ingredients:

1 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon frozen (thawed) limeade concentrate
1 tablespoon grated lime peel
1 1/4 cups Gold Medal® all-purpose flour
1 cup graham cracker crumbs (about 20 squares)
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup chopped walnuts

Directions:

In large bowl, beat butter and 1/2 cup of the powdered sugar with electric mixer on medium speed 3 minutes or until fluffy. Stir in vanilla, limeade concentrate and lime peel. On low speed, beat in flour, graham cracker crumbs and salt just until blended. Fold in nuts. Cover; refrigerate 1 hour.


Heat oven to 400°F. Shape dough into 36 (1 1/4-inch) balls. On ungreased cookie sheets, place balls 1 inch apart.

Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until slight cracks appear and cookies are lightly golden. Remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks; cool 5 minutes. Place remaining 1 cup powdered sugar in shallow dish. Roll warm cookies in powdered sugar; cool. Store tightly covered up to 1 week.
