Key Lime Cookies

1/2 cup butter
1 cup white sugar
1 egg
1 egg yolk
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup Key lime juice

Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs and lime juice and blend well. Add flour, baking powder, and salt and mix. The dough will be very sticky, so chill dough for an hour or two (I froze mine for an hour). Preheat oven to 350 and bake for 10 minutes or until bottoms begin to brown. Feel free to dust them with powdered sugar, but I found them sweet enough as-is.
