As our time in Spain was dwindling in late May, I began to think more about using up pantry items. Here is another recipe that was created to use up pantry ingredients I purchased for our time in Spain. I wanted to use up the flour, sugar and a lime that I had sitting around. Unfortunately, I had only a little butter that I needed for the remainder of the week so I improvised and used reduced table cream. I figured if you could make cookies using olive oil, then you should be able to make cookies using cream, but I only had table cream which is generally about 18% fat so I reduced it about half in volume which I was hoping would give me about 36% fat or at least more than 18%. The cookies turned out delicate, not crumbly and slightly chewy. JT thought some coconut would be lovely in them so perhaps I’ll try that next time. I would have liked a little more lime flavour so I upped the zest in the recipe below because I only had one lime, two I think, would be perfect.

A deliscious, chewy cookie.

Lime Sugar Cookies

A KitchenInspirations Original Recipe

Makes about 24 cookies about 5 cm in diameter


  • 270 g all-purpose flour
  • 5 g baking soda
  • 2.5 g kosher salt
  • 251 g granulated sugar, plus more for rolling
  • 78 g reduced table cream (see notes)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2.5 mL vanilla extract
  • 15 mL lime juice 
  • Zest of 2 limes


  1. Whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt and set aside.
  2. Combine the sugar, table cream, eggs, vanilla, lime juice and zest and mix well.
  3. Pour the dry ingredients into the wet and just fold in so that there is no visible flour. Set in the freezer for 30 minutes.
  4. Preheat the oven to 350° F. Drop about 15 mL cookies (about a tablespoon) onto a parchment-lined sheet bake for 8-10 minutes. Allow to cool completely.


  • For the table cream in this recipe, pour 250 mL table cream into a heavy bottom saucepan and reduce on high heat until about half (about 30 minutes), stirring occasionally so it doesn’t over boil. Cool completely.
