Dancing Deer sugar cane lime cookies

I think Dancing Deer Baking Company is a terrific company. They're a great example of how a business can be successful while choosing to be socially responsible and generally having priorities other than maximizing profits. I have to say, though, that I'm often disappointed by their desserts. Today, for example, I had their sugar cane lime cookies. Now, cookies are one of my favorite categories of dessert, and I love anything with lime. But, like all Dancing Deer cookies I've had, these were sort of dry, with a texture that tries but fails to find a happy medium between crunchy and chewy.

To be fair to the company, there are many desserts of theirs that I haven't tried. The lime ricotta pound cake might be fabulous. But so far, their desserts haven't won me over the way their philosophy has.
