This recipe is in partnership with my friends at Imperial Sugar! CLICK HERE for the full recipe!
My favorite soda growing up was a Cherry Limeade from Sonic….please tell me you’ve had one! The lemon-lime soda, with a splash of grenadine, loaded with that perfect little nugget ice and tons of maraschino cherries, is just summer perfection!
So why not turn those flavors into a cookie? At first I wasn’t sure how this combo would work in cookie form, but after testing a few different versions, I have t say I nailed it!
The cookies are soft, cherry cookies with chopped pieces of maraschino cherries throughout, topped with a tart lime icing, that couldn’t be easier to make! They’re a super pretty cookie, and while they are perfect for the summer months, they would be fantastic at the holidays! That pretty red and green combo is super festive!
AND if you want to take a shortcut, you can skip making the icing and add the lime zest into the cookie dough! I love the sweet icing on top, but adding the zest to the dough works too!
