Lemon-Lime Sugar Cookie Truffles

1 batch of sugar cookie dough (store bought or homemade)
zest and juice of 1 large lemon
zest and juice of 1 large lime
1-1/2 block of cream cheese (12 oz) at room temperature
1 package white chocolate candy coating
colored sugar or coarse sugar for garnish

1.  Preheat oven to 350℉.  Prepare the cookie dough as directed on package or recipe; add in the zest and juice of the lemon and lime and mix well. 

2.  Spread the cookie dough in a greased 9x9 inch baking dish and bake for 25-40 minutes, or until cookies are fully baked.  Cool completely.

3.  When cookies are cooled, remove from the dish and crumble into the bowl of a stand mixer or food processor (small chunks are fine).  Add in the cream cheese and mix until the cookie crumbs and cream cheese are completely mixed together.  Roll into 1-1/2 inch balls and refrigerate for at least an hour.

4.  When the balls are thoroughly chilled, melt the white chocolate candy coating in the microwave, or over a double boiler.  Carefully dip each ball in the white chocolate and turn to coat.  Remove with a toothpick and set on a lined cookie sheet. Top with sprinkles if desired. Repeat until all balls are coated.  Store in refrigerator.
