1
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray cookie sheets with nonstick cooking spray.
2
Place the cake mix in a large mixing bowl with the softened butter, eggs, and lime zest. Blend with an electrc mixer set on medium-high speed for 1-2 minutes, until smooth. Stir in the white chocolate chips with a wooden spoon until well mixed.
3
Drop dough by teaspoonfuls, 2 inches apart, onto prepared cookie sheets.
4
Bake for 10 to 13 minutes or until set at edges and just barely set at center when lightly touched. Cool for 1 minute on cooke sheets. Transfer to wire racks to cool completely. Prepare lime icing. Drizzle icing over cooled cookies.
5
To prepare the icing place the confectioners' sugar in medium bowl. Mix in zest and enough juice as needed to make icng just thin enough to drip off fork.
6
If you want lemon or orange cookies be sure and substite the flavor of choice in place of the lime zest and juice. I also sprinkled my cookie with finely chopped nuts after the icing was on the cookies but before it sets up.
