My husband loves anything key lime. We have tried it all including pie, cupcakes, and cookies. I saw a pin on Pinterest for Key Lime truffles and knew I had to make them for my husband. The recipe took a while to complete; however, the hands on time wasn’t too overwhelming. I used a tube of Pillsbury cookie dough from the refrigerated section of my grocery store. My daughter enjoyed helping with the sprinkles! I’m happy to report that the key lime (aka lemon-lime sugar cookie) truffles turned out amazing. Very sweet, but amazing!

Substitutions: I made a few substitutions. I used 1 block of cream cheese. The recipe calls for 1 and 1/2 blocks, but I though that was too much. Also, I used vanilla candy coating instead of white chocolate.
Time: It’s hard to say because there were a few steps to this recipe. I’d say a total of 40 minutes hands on time. The cookie dough has to bake and cool and that took over an hour.
