Active Prep Time

15 minutes

Cooking Time

15 minutes



Powdered Sugar


Egg Yolk




In a large mixing bowl, use a hand mixer on medium speed to combine butter and sugar. 

Step One

Add the flour and salt and combine with your hand mixer on medium speed. 

Step Two

Add the egg yolk and lime juice and combine with your hand mixer on low. 

Step Three

Green Tip

Avoid food waste by using the unneeded egg white in another recipe—such as these candied walnuts!

Fold in the lime zest.

Step Four

Use a large cookie scoop or wet hands to form your dough into 8 round cookies and place them on a lined baking sheet, leaving at least an inch of space in between each cookie. 

Step Five

Place the cookie sheet in the freezer to set for 30 minutes. Preheat the oven to 325°F. Bake cookies for 14-16 minutes, until the outer edges just start to brown. 

Step Six

Time to make the glaze! Add tequila and 1 teaspoon of lime juice to a large mixing bowl.

Step Seven

With your hand mixer on low, add 1/4 cup powdered sugar. Keep your mixer on and continue to add more powdered sugar, about 1 tablespoon at a time, checking the consistency as you go. 

Step Eight

Once your cookies have cooled, drizzle the glaze on top and add some more lime zest for a fun and fragrant finish. Enjoy!
