We are in the dead of winter and I am over here making lemon poppy seed cookies. Why? Because I have quarts upon quarts of limoncello that I made last year for Christmas. I’m talking 2014, not this past Christmas. So this stuff has been getting good for over a year now!
Limoncello isn’t something I like to drink daily. It’s a nice dessert-sipping lemon liqueur that is nice to have ice cold on a hot summer day. That is why I still have so much of it just chilling in my freezer. I also have a bottle my brother gave me for my birthday 2 years ago. I think that was what originally caused the spark for me to learn how to make limoncello.
So with all this limoncello taking up precious space in our freezer, what is a girl to do? MAKE BOOZY LEMON COOKIES!
Every now and then I do an inventory of our liquor cabinet to check out what spirits haven’t really been moving. I then pull out The Boozy Baker cookbook and see if there is anything I can use to conjure up something delicious with that extra kick!
So I decided on these babies!
These cookies are simple, soft, delicious and are sure to be a crowd pleaser!
(I love to zest citrus so much!)
These cookies take no time to prepare and only about 12 minutes to bake.
They are topped with a simple limoncello and confectioners’ sugar glaze and even poppy seeds to garnish if you would like, I certainly would.
You can always enjoy these lovely cookies with a nice little glass of limoncello over ice.
Enjoy! And happy boozy baking you fine thing!
Valentines Day is coming up, have you heard? I’m not one to go…
