  • Bake at 350 degrees until cookies are just done, 10-15 minutes*

  • While cookie cups are baking, zest the limes
  • Combine cream cheese, lime juice, sweetened condensed milk and half of the lime zest in a mixing bowl and use and electric mixer to combine until smooth. Refrigerate for 15 minutes while cookies are cooling

Notes

*Cooking time for cookie cups will vary depending on type of pan used and oven.  Watch cookies carefully and remove from oven when just done.  Place the pan in the refrigerator after a few minutes to speed up cooling process
