Tropical White Chocolate Chip Cookies

I was actually looking for a cake recipe with these ingredient, but... who doesn't love cookies. The fruit is great. it adds a different texture and kind of a brightness, but i think that is the lime zest.
If you can't find the dried fruit by itself, you can substitute tropical trail mix. just pick out the nuts and other stuff.

•2⁄3 cup packed light-brown sugar
•2⁄3 cup granulated sugar
•2 tsp vanilla extract

•2 1⁄3 cups all-purpose flour
•12 oz coarsely chopped white baking chocolate

•1 Tbsp grated lime zest
