    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!

    1. 1
      Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line 2 cookie sheets with baking parchment.
    2. 2
      Put 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.
    3. 3
      Sift together the flour and a pinch of salt into the mixture and stir until thoroughly combined.
    4. 4
      Scoop 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.
    5. 5
      Let cool on the cookie sheets for 5-10 minutes, then using a metal spatula, carefully transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
    6. 6
      Sift the confectioners' sugar into a bowl and stir in sufficient tequila to give the mixture the consistency of thick cream.
    7. 7
      With the cookies still on the racks, drizzle the frosting over them with a teaspoon. Let set.

      Delightful Girl you have one Delightful Cookie recipe! I used King Arthur's Pastry Blend Flour (perfect for cookies) and added 2 tbsp Jose Cuervo Silver to the dough and they baked up beautifully. We found the icing strong but will rectify with the next batch I make by using less glaze on the cookies. TFS! Made for New Kids on the Block.
