  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Line large cookie sheets with cooking parchment paper.
  • 2
    In 1-quart saucepan, mix condensed milk, egg yolks and lime juice with whisk. Cook over medium heat 4 to 6 minutes, stirring constantly, until bubbling. Remove from heat; transfer to small bowl, and refrigerate 1 hour.
  • 3
    In large bowl, break up cookie dough. Add flour; stir with spoon or use hands until well blended. Shape dough into 32 (1 1/4-inch) balls, and roll in crushed graham crackers. Place 2 inches apart on cookie sheets. Press thumb into center of each cookie to make indentation, but do not press all the way to the cookie sheet.
  • 4
    Bake 8 to 11 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Immediately remake indentation (1-inch wide) in center of each cookie with back of measuring teaspoon. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks. Cool completely, about 20 minutes. Spoon about 1 teaspoon lime filling into each indentation.
  • 5
    In small microwavable bowl, microwave baking chips uncovered on High 20 to 40 seconds or until chips can be stirred smooth. Transfer to small resealable food-storage plastic bag, and cut small corner off one end. Drizzle on top of cooled cookies; garnish with lime zest, and let stand 10 to 15 minutes or until drizzle is set. Store in refrigerator.

  • Use a cookie scoop to portion equal-size cookies.

Expert Tips

  • Make the Key lime filling a day ahead of time, and keep refrigerated until you're ready to top the cookies. The filling will set up more when it's cold, making it easier to add to centers.
  • Key limes are small in size and tend to be more aromatic and tart than regular limes. However, you can use regular limes in this recipe.
  • Store cookies covered in refrigerator.
