  • Preheat oven to 350ºF (180ºC). Grease or line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Beat shortening and sugar in a large bowl using electric mixer until well combined. Add zest and lime juice. Beat well. Add remaining dry ingredients and mix until dough comes together.
  • Roll 2 tbsp (30mL) dough on a lightly floured surface to form a 4” (10cm) log. Curl into a ring and gently press ends together. Your cookie will look like a small donut. Place on prepared baking sheets.
  • Bake in preheated oven 15 to 17 minutes or until lightly golden around the edges. Cool on baking sheets for 5 minutes. Transfer to wire rack to finish cooling.
  • Glaze: Combine ingredients for glaze in a small bowl. Drizzle over the cookies to create a zigzag pattern and wait for the glaze to set.
