RECIPE: A Different Virgin Island Cookie
Another from my friend, Angela.
LIME RUM GINGERSNAP COOKIES
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1 TBL rum, light or dark
2 TBL Rose's Lime juice
1 tsp grated lime zest
1 1/2 TBL freshly grated ginger
3 1/4 cups + 2 TBL flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground cloves
In a large bowl beat the butter with the sugar, adding the egg, beat until fluffy. Stir in rum, lime juice, zest & ginger. Sift together dry ingredients & add to bowl until well combined.
Cut dough in 1/2 & form into a roll. Wrap with wax paper & chill overnight until firm.
Preheat oven to 350Â°. Lightly grease baking sheets or use non-stick ones.
Slice rolls thinly, slightly less than 1/4". Place on cookie shets leaving at least 1 1/2" space between the cookies. Sprinkle sugar over the tops of the cookies & bake until golden, about 12-15 minutes. Remove cookies from oven & allow to cool on sheet for 8-10 minutes. Cookies will have hardened slightly & be easier to remove with a metal spatula. Cool completely on a wire rack.~~
