Cocoa Ginger Lime Cookies

Cocoa Ginger Lime Cookies cooling

Each Bachelor night we do a theme based upon something in the show. Last week was a mix between Vegas and ethnic (due to the lack of ethnic diversity this season). Therefore I decided to make up a batch of cookies that would be a bit out of the usual variety and this is what I came up with. They have passed the both Bachelor night and workplace approval in their taste, though the ginger ends up a stronger note with the lime being an undertone in the palate.

Cocoa Ginger Lime Cookies

2 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon ginger
dash of cloves
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup margarine
1/2 cup shortening
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 cup lime

Sift together flour, baking powder, salt, ginger & cocoa. Set aside. In a larger bowl mix margarine, shortening, sugar, eggs, vanilla, and lime.

    How neat to come up with a cookie that matches a theme. Your flavor combo definitely sounds good. I have a sweet treat linky party going on at my blog called “Sweets for a Saturday” and I’d like to invite you to stop by this weekend and link your cookie up.

      Thank you for the invitation! I’m sorry I missed you link party. I’ve been out of town for the past week and so was unable to get on here and respond before today.
