In a large mixing bowl beat the sugar, butter or shortening, eggs, lemon and lime peels, lemon and lime juices and water. Mix in flour mixture until well blended.

I wonder if you can use coconut oil instead of butter or palm shortening.

Maybe, maybe not. Try it with half butter or palm shortening and coconut oil and if that turns out fine use 100% coconut oil (make sure it's at soft butter consistency). I can't say for sure as I haven't tried it myself. :)

I made these cookies and we loved the flavor and the texture. I used only lime juice and lime zest. I don`t know maybe it was my rice flour, but this recipe needs more coconut and rice flour. I followed the recipe exactly and the texture was watery for cookies, so I added more coconut flour. Or maybe the texture will be right just with one egg. But overall I liked this recipe, I will use it to make citrus cookies.

These look and sound scrumptious! I will try these and let you know how they turn out! Thanks for sharing your recipe, Sarah! :)

I used xylitol and stevia as a sweetener since I am on a very strict sugar free diet. I am allergic to all artificial sweeteners, so these are my choices. Dying for a good cookie right now! I used mostly lemon as I found I had used up my last lime. Also added a dash of coconut milk because my dough was dry. I used 1/2 cup butter and the rest coconut oil. Will let you know how they turn out. Thanks for the recipe!

They are delicious! I love that they taste like a lemon poppyseed muffin. I rolled on pan in coconut flakes, several in sprinkles (for my daughter), and the rest in poppyseeds. I also added some chopped almonds to the mix. Super delicious. This one will be in my cookbook for sure!

The balls do not spread at all, the instructions should have said to flatten the ball. Feels like saw dust in your mouth. Sorry but I have to say this felt like a waste of time and ingredients. I will crumble and add the crumbs to some other recipe so it would not be a total waste of money.

What type of rice flour? (These sound wonderful.)
