This recipe is all about things that I love.  Cookies.  I mean, who doesn’t love cookies – both making and eating them, key lime anything, and silky, white chocolate.  

Key Lime Chippers, because they’re a drop cookie, they’re incredibly easy.  No rolling into balls or shapes, no chilling the dough.  Mix, drop, bake, and eat.  Could they be any easier?


  • Butter.  Use real butter, not margarine or shortening.  The butter adds a richness and a lot of flavor.
  • Both granulated sugar and brown sugar – again, use both.  They contribute differently to the recipe, each adding their own special nuances to the finished product.  
  • Egg. Self-explanatory.
  • Lime extract and vanilla for flavor.  If you don’t have lime extract, increase the vanilla to 1 ½ teaspoons or add a bit more lime zest.
  • Key lime juice – this one is perfectly fine to use Persian limes.  Key limes are more tart, which I love, but it doesn’t make a huge difference in the cookie.  
  • Flour, baking powder, and salt.
  • White chocolate chips.  Use whatever brand you like.  If you have a white chocolate baking bar, you can use that – simply chop it into little chunks.
