I am going to a cook out tomorrow and I wanted to bring something, so I decided to make the Margarita cookies from Smitten Kitchen. It was less work than I thought it would be, but I had my taste tester work with the lime and orange. Very yummy cookie. If you are looking for “sanding” Sugar ——-> Williams Sonoma has it. To locate the recipe it is located at Smitten Kitchen.
I did get a little confused at the part where you mix the sugar and salt together. My first go around, I mixed the egg in with it. You want to see someone mad??? You should have seen me. Ugh, please don’t make the same mistake as me.
I also think I should have used a little more tequila. You don’t really feel it come through the cookie. Not sure if 1 or 3 more teaspoons would have thrown it off. I will try that next time.
My cookies seem to get really brown on the bottom, maybe too much egg? Not sure why that happened.
Also, feel free to a little more orange zest.
They sort of remind me of the old school cookies in the blue tin. Royal Dansk.
Final Thoughts: Great cookie!
