In a desperate need to use up the lemons and limes before they go bad I decided to make "Margarita Cookies"
adapted from Pampered Chef Classic Spritz Cookies
3 sticks butter
1 cup sugar
1 egg
3 1/2 cups flour
lemon/ lime zest to taste
lemon/ lime juice to taste

Blend butter, sugar, and egg well. Blend in one cup at a time of the four until well mixed. Put in a cookie press (pampered chef really pricey and I swear you'll never use it) and press out. You could no doubt do this by making little balls and pressing with the bottom of a glass dipped in sugar. Bake at 350* for 12 or so minutes. You can tell when they are getting done by the color and the firmness.

Green icing:
green food coloring
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp milk
mix up and drizzle over the cookies before it hardens
Add sprinkles if you like

Happy Baking, and or drinking!
