Description

Delicious brown sugar, lime and vodka cookies, inspired by a recent trip to Portugal.

Ingredients

  • 1 Tablespoon Corn Syrup
  • 1 Tablespoon Vodka
  • ½ pounds, ⅛ ounces, weight All-purpose Flour
  • ½ teaspoons Baking Soda
  • ¼ teaspoons Salt
  • 4 ounces, weight Softened, Unsalted Butter
  • 4 ounces, weight Granulated Sugar
  • 4 ounces, weight Light Brown Sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon Lime Zest Plus Extra For Garnish If Desired
  • 1  Large Egg
  • Icing Sugar, For Sprinkling On The Finished Cookies

Preparation

In a saucepan combine the syrup and vodka, and simmer until it has reduced and thickened a little. This should just take a couple of minutes. Remove pan from heat and let this cool.

In a bowl whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt. Set this aside.

In the large bowl of an electric mixer, cream the butter and sugars and add the lime zest. When totally combined, add the egg and mix through. Add the cooled syrup mix and combine, before slowly adding the flour. Mix the flour in until no streaks of white are seen. Place the cookie dough in a sheet of cling film, wrap it up and place in the fridge. Let this chill for about 20 minutes.

Preheat your oven to 180 C and line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper.

When chilled, break off pieces of the dough and roll into one-inch balls, placing them on the cookie sheets with some space in between them. Pop into the oven for 10 to 12 minutes, until golden brown. Remove pan from oven and let cookies cool completely on a wire rack. Repeat until all the dough has been used up.

To finish, I dusted over some icing sugar and some more lime zest. These cookies are very refreshing with the lime, there is a slight ‘something’ from the vodka and with the brown sugar, is just like eating a Caipiroska! If you want to, you could replace the vodka with rum and have Caipirinha cookies instead.

Enjoy and remember to eat responsibly!

Inspired by a recipe for Tequila Lime Cookies at Today’s Nest.

Yield: Approximately 40 cookies.

Just an FYI: Caipirinhas are made with cachaca, not rum. Cachaca has a cedil on the last c. So it sounds like Kah-shah-sah. Though rum and cachaca are made from sugar cane they are different spirits.
