2005 - Lime Meltaways Away!
I finally got a chance to slice and bake my Lime Meltaways today (Nov. 22). I had four lime-flecked logs and they yielded 12 1/3 dozen. While I was baking, I kept track like this:
DOZENS: IIII IIII IIII (except there were slanted strokes, to signify 5s)
Lime Meltaways are always so fragrant — first, when you're zesting the limes; again, when they're baking. I couldn't resist indulging in a few with a cuppa tea. And they're so light, it's nothing to eat four at a time!
I packed up two dozen to send to Misha (my niece, Michelle). I tucked in a loaf of Pumpkin Bread in her care package too. Hope they reach her OK in Florida.
I'll have to get mine packed away in the freezer now. It's midnight. It took from 9-11:10 to bake and shake the cookies (in confectioner's sugar). I had to turn down the oven and cut the baking time — this new convection oven of mine cranks out the heat.
