Yum! Cookies made with tequila and limes. Does this make it an edible margarita? Maybe. Cookies are one of those desserts that I shy away from because you have to make them in batches and watch them like a hawk so they don't burn.
In a previous card I wrote about making your own tequila pops, which you can see by clicking here. @Allischaaff had a great idea if you don't have a mould. Now, if you don't want to mess with candy thermometers and whatnot, try this one out. A baking sheet is pretty much something everyone has.
Don't freak out over the list of ingredients:
Tequila Lime Cookies:
half stick unsalted butter, room temperature
¼ cup vegetable shortening (Crisco baking sticks work great!)
¼ cup powdered suga
r¼ cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon Tequila
1 tablespoon Roses lime juice
½ teaspoon Triple Sec
1 packed and heaping tablespoon fresh lime zest
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
coarse salt for sprinkling
Tequila-Lime Glaze:
¼ cup powdered sugar
1 tablespoon Roses lime juice
1 tablespoon Tequila
Here's how you make bite-size joy:
Preheat oven to 375*F.
Lightly butter a baking sheet or prepare with parchment paper.
In a mixing bowl, beat the butter and shortening until smooth.
Beat in sugar, adding tequila, lime juice, triple sec, and lime zest, until combined.
Add flour and mix well.
Form balls from ½ teaspoon of dough and place on 2 inches apart on prepared baking sheet.
Bake for 8 minutes.
In the meantime, make the Tequila-Lime Glaze:
Combine all ingredients in a small bowl and stir until sugar dissolves.
Remove cookies from oven and immediately glaze.
Cool thoroughly.
Sprinkle with salt and serve at room temperature.
Don't burn these! That seems to be my cookie baking problem. I just get distracted with other things! If you do make these, let me know how they taste. Definitely save a few for me.
Mmmm they look good! The little salt sprinkle is so pretty :) And I love how we made tequila-themed dessert cards at the same time hahaha.
I saw that too! Great minds... I've pretty much been nothing but tequila-minded today. I already called off of work, so I won't be going in tonight. Rather be lounging in a kids pool with a smorgasbord of tequila!
