Author Notes: I love citrus fruits of all sorts, but I think limes get passed over a little too often. These cookies have a lovely light lime flavour and the white chocolate gives a chocolate fix without taking the show.
About the Persian Lime olive oil: Though I live in a small city, we are lucky to have a specialty oil and vinegar shop that sells infused extra virgin olive oils. My favourite is their Persian Lime infused extra virgin olive oil and after falling in love with it in salads and savoury dishes, I wanted to try it in something sweet. And who doesn't love cookies? - Sylvia9000
