Enjoy a Margarita without the Hangover!
It’s no secret that I enjoy an ice-cold margarita now and then, most people in Texas, heck most people everywhere do. The problem with a margarita is that you can’t enjoy one in the middle of the day while sitting at your desk at work. After a late night of baking fun, we have figured out a way to quench your thirst for a margarita and satisfy your sweet tooth, all without getting in trouble with your boss for drinking on the job. How can this be done you might ask? Well, with a Margarita Cookie of course.
The idea for the Margarita Cookie was very simple….find whatever was in the pantry and create a deliciously unique cookie. Unfortunately I can’t take all the credit, or any credit for that matter, for this cookie. After I tested a couple of other recipes at home, my husband was convinced he could develop something better. Knowing that he probably could, I egged him on with the hopes that I’d get to eat some fantastic cookies.
The end product is a fabulous cookie that really tastes like a margarita. The modified sugar cookie has the lime flavor we all know and love from a traditional margarita, a light sweetness from the raw agave syrup balanced by a hint of cilantro, and the coarse salt sprinkled on top of the cookies. The simple recipe takes about 30 minutes from start to first bite.
The cookies were such a hit at the office that one team member, who shall remain nameless, ate practically every single cookie. The few lucky team members who were able to wrestle a cookie away from our office cookie bandit loved the Margarita Cookie. They loved the sweet and saltiness paired with the cookie’s light texture.
The Margarita Cookie is the perfect treat to bring to the many summer parties we will all be attending in the coming months. Your friends will be impressed with the dessert spin on a classic cocktail. Don’t forget to visit our extensive recipe library for the complete Margarita Cookie recipe. Happy Baking!
