1/3 Photos of Margarita Cookies
Delightful Girl's Note:
This comes from the cookbook "1 Dough, 100 Cookies" by Linda Doeser and has become one of my favorites. It is a fairly basic recipe but the frosting really brings it to a whole new level. I used regular sugar instead of superfine sugar and Sauza tequila (not a white variety) that I happened to have in my pantry. I am not a tequila connoisseur but this seemed to work out just fine. Enjoy!

- 1Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line 2 cookie sheets with baking parchment.
- 2Put the butter, sugar, and lime rind into a bowl and mix well with a wooden spoon, then beat in the egg yolk and orange liqueur or orange extract.
- 3Sift together the flour and a pinch of salt into the mixture and stir until thoroughly combined.
- 4Scoop up tablespoons of the dough and put them on the prepared cookie sheets, then flatten gently. Bake for 10-15 minutes, until light golden brown.
- 5Let cool on the cookie sheets for 5-10 minutes, then using a metal spatula, carefully transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
- 6Sift the confectioners' sugar into a bowl and stir in sufficient tequila to give the mixture the consistency of thick cream.
- 7With the cookies still on the racks, drizzle the frosting over them with a teaspoon. Let set.
