Very Lime Cookies

Makes 20-30 cookies Prep Time 20 minutes   Cook Time 12 minutes   Rated:

We think these taste like fruit loops. Yep, you know that brightly hued 'breakfast cereal' that really shouldn't be eaten by anyone? (Go on, admit it, you loved fruit loops as a kid am I right?) Anyway, no additives, and curiously similar to the taste of fruit loops in a healthy citrusy way.

We do recommend the use of a microplane for this job, as using your Thermomix to finely grate that much zest is a recipe for disaster. Plus it is kind of an upper arm work out, which means you can have an extra cookie for your labours. Please enjoy, we are pretty sure you will.
