Soft and sweet coconut sugar cookies with a lime and rum sugar glaze.
I was thinking about sugar cookies recently. ( I often am, how about you?) So I decided to create a “summer” cookie based on the humble sugar cookie. I recently made some strawberry lime cheesecakes (recipe coming soon!), but my desire for tangy lime desserts was not satiated. Summer is still in full swing after all!
What else goes with lime but coconut…cue the singing. I could have gone with a margarita theme here, but sadly I was out of tequila. Rum boldly stepped up to the plate, and I am happy to say it did just fine. The rum in the cookie creates only a muted, background flavor. Add the rum glaze, and now each delicious bite has a wonderful rum kick. Sorry kids, these cookies aren’t for you.
