3/4 cup sugar
1 tbsp light cream

2 1/2 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder

Cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add egg and mix well. Add cream and mix well. Add lime juice and mix well.
In a separate bowl combine flour, baking powder, lime zest and salt. Mix well.
Slowly add to creamed butter mixture. Mixing well. Dough is mixed enough when it comes together and forms a ball.
Remove cookie dough from mixer. No need to flour the surface as the dough is the texture of a play dough and should not stick
