Key Lime Meltaway Cookies
Makes about 3 dozen
3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup confectioners’ sugar
Finely grated zest of 2 limes
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice (lemon juice can be used)
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
1 3/4 cups plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon coarse salt
1.Put butter and 1/3 cup confectioners’ sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer and mix on medium speed until pale and fluffy. Add lime zest and juice and vanilla, and mix until fluffy.
2.Whisk together flour, cornstarch, and salt in a bowl. Add to butter mixture, and mix on low speed until just combined.
3.Divide dough in half. Place each half on an 8-by-12-inch sheet of parchment paper. Roll in parchment to form a log 1 1/4 inches in diameter, pressing a ruler along edge of parchment at each turn to narrow log. Refrigerate logs until cold and firm, at least 1 hour.
4.Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Remove parchment from logs; cut into 1/4-inch-thick rounds. Space rounds 1 inch apart on baking sheets lined with parchment paper. Bake cookies until barely golden, about 13 minutes, rotating sheets halfway through. Transfer cookies to wire racks to cool slightly, 8 to 10 minutes. While still warm, toss cookies with remaining 2/3 cup sugar in a resealable plastic bag. Cookies can be stored in airtight containers at room temperature up to 2 weeks.
We specialize in custom cakes, but I love all kinds of baked goods. I am sharing some of my favorite recipes with you because we do not sell these items at the bakery.
The Food Network and other TV stations have had a lot of cake shows on lately and have brought cake artistry into the main stream. Custom wedding cakes create a personal element to your reception that cannot be matched by decor or venue. Remember, it is the first thing your guest see at the reception and the last thing they taste. You will also have photos of you cutting the cake. It is very important that it both looks spectacular and tastes fantastic. Do your homework and check the bakery out and have a tasting including the fondant. The Groom’s cake can be a sculpture of the Groom’s car, themed on his hobbies or favorite sport. It is supposed to be something that is about him and fun. This can be served at the rehearsal dinner or the reception.
Birthday cakes have also become artwork cakes both for the young and old.
As the outside of cakes have changed, so have the inside. Gone are the dry white sponge cakes of the past. Now people are choosing what they really love to eat. It could be red velvet with cream cheese icing or fudge marble with strawberry butter cream. Each tier can be a different flavor with any filling you can dream of. At Art Eats Bakery we make all of our cakes and icings from scratch and we only use the very best fresh ingredients. Only pure vanilla extract and other natural flavors are used in our bakery items. Even our fondant is scratch made and tastes great. It can be made in lots of flavors. Our cakes are all butter cakes and our butter cream is also made with fresh butter. We are licensed by the CITY OF GREENVILLE and DHEC and our rating is an A. We also carry liability insurance for the safety of you and your guests. It is against the law to operate a food business without the above items and most people doing this from their home do not have them. Please visit our website and then call for a consultation and cake tasting.
