Tequila Lime Cookies with Tequila Glaze

Hotch Posts: 3,564

Below is the recipe for the Tequila Lime Cookies with Tequila Glaze we cooked at the Athens 2014 Eggfest.

Tequila Lime Cookies with Tequila Glaze (Adapted from McCormick’s Sugar Rimmed Margarita Cookies)
Makes 24 cookies

2 cups flour
¼ teaspoon salt
¾ cup (1 ½ sticks) butter, softened
Green Food Coloring (optional – I use six drops McCormick Neon Green and 2 drops McCormick Green)
1 cup granulated sugar
1 egg
1 tablespoon finely grated lime peel
1 teaspoon McCormick Pure Orange Extract
½ cup Sugar in the Raw
½ teaspoon kosher salt
½ cup green crystalline decorations
2 packets of True Lime

Tequila Glaze:
1 cup confectioner’s sugar
1 tablespoon water
1 tablespoon tequila
1 packet of True Lime

Cookie Instructions:
Mix flour and ¼ teaspoon salt in medium bowl, set aside. Beat butter and granulated sugar in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy. Add egg, lime peel, extract, true lime and food coloring if using: mix well. Gradually beat in flour mixture on low speed until well mixed. Divide dough in half. Form each half into a log about 9 inches long and 1 ½ inches in diameter. Wrap in wax paper.

Refrigerate 1 hour or until firm (you can also prepare these the day before and place in refrigerator over-night.

Preheat oven (BGE) to 350 degrees. Mix Sugar in the Raw, kosher salt, true lime and green crystalline decorations together. Roll each cold dough log in mixture to coat evenly. Cut dough into ¼ inch thick slices. Place on a parchment lined cookie sheet.

Bake 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned around the edges (in the BGE, I turn halfway through the cooking). Cool on baking sheets 1 minute.
Drizzle glaze over cooled cookies. If desired sprinkle lightly with salt/sugar/true lime/green crystalline mixture. Let stand until glaze is set and serve.

Tequila Glaze Instructions:
Combine confectioner’s sugar, water, tequila and True Lime into a small mixing bowl and stir until creamy.
