Corn Key Lime Cooler Cookies

April 21, 2018 7:26 am Published by Leave your thoughts

I’m helping with a dinner party tonight at a home on the beach and I wanted to give a treat giveaway to each guest that would incorporate the “beach theme”.  I knew that there was one guest that is gluten free so I developed a recipe for these key lime coolers with corn meal in them.  The cornmeal worked great and gave the cookies a nice crunchy texture.  Not for just people with gluten allergies, everyone will enjoy them.  I’m giving these cookies along with a jar of my home made “beach house seasoning”, you can get that recipe on this post here:

I love giving party guests gifts at small intimate dinner parties, a fun way to remember the party.
