This recipe is an updated one of the original recipe. I like the original one but I thought it just didn't have enough flavor. So I made some changes. They are delicious and super flavorful. You can ice them or leave them plain. The original recipe I found while looking for margarita recipes.

How to Make Margarita Cookies

Step-by-Step

  • 1In a bowl cream together butter and sugar with a mixer add egg yolk and all the zest. Cream until well combined. Add tequila, triple sec and salt. Add flour in a little at a time. fold flour in until well combined with wooden spoon or mixer with paddle attachment. Cover dough with plastic wrap and put in fridge for 30 minutes.
  • 2Preheat oven to 350 degrees line cookie sheets with parchment paper or spray with non stick spray. Scoop out cookie dough into tbs rounds or with cookie scoop.
    I always have enough dough to make 2 dozen. Space them 2 inches apart because they will spread when they are cooked. Cook in the preheated oven for 15 minutes until edges start to turn golden brown.
  • 3Take cookies out and let them set in cookie sheet for 5 minutes and let them cool in wire rack for 15. Make glaze either with orange juice if giving them to the kids or for the grownups use tequila or triple sec. They are delicious and beautiful looking with the specs of orange, yellow and green.
