Margarita Cookies

January 13, 2012

A savory cook doesn’t like to measure. Prides herself on creativity, spontaneity, judging temperature by sound, flavor by taste. A pastry cook prides herself on accuracy, on regiment. She is patient and organized and finds big reward in tiny little measuring spoons. For a long time I couldn’t identify with the latter … until last week when I found sanity in a cookie.

So why have I interrupted your day … hijacked your Facebook page, broken your twitter feed with this recipe? Because this cookie has tequila in it PEOPLE! And it’s got lime and salt which makes it newsworthy, in my opinion.

Don’t worry, you can go to work after eating one AND you can drive AND you can still talk without slurring.

Unless you’re like me and you eat so many of them you have to lay down flat. And you profess you’ll never have another cookie, shortly before going into the kitchen to have another cookie and then you fall asleep with crumbs on your shirt.

Sorry guys, I’m taken.

I’m going to assume this comment box also serves as an order form. I would like a dozen dozen of these. (Sorry girl scouts, I’ve found a new less socially responsible way to invest $$ in cookies.)

Cooking is an art, baking a science. Which is why we haven’t done a ton of baking. But I do love cookies…..
