While I am sure these cookies taste wonderful I agree with goldenone39 100 percent that biscochitos should be the one from New Mexico especially since it is the state's official cookie. Not too many states have an official cookie, but New Mexico does.
I have lived in New Mexico most of my life and never heard of these. The state of New Mexico cookie should be the biscochito not these things.
excellent snack. for groups
Not a fan of Gin so I used Golden Rum. Oh My Gosh! YUM!!!!
These are very good. I did add a little lime juice after reading some comments, about 1 TBL. and I think next time I will up the gin to 1/4 cup. The coconut I use is unsweetened and drier, so the added moisture will be fine. I have to admit, I haven't bothered with the white chocolate.
Easy to make, taste good, and look nice. I feel like there could be more flavor to the coconut, the grated lime doesn't really stand out. I added in more on the top before putting them into the oven, but I feel like I may add lime juice to the egg white mixture next time. (but keeping in mind I used Sugar in the Raw. So that may be why.)
I made these cookies this weekend because I thought the ingredients seemed interesting. These are some of the best cookies I've ever had. Very easy to make also. This recipe is a keeper.
You can use any kind of gin you wish or just leave it out all together. But really love these cookies
Can someone please tell me what type of gin is best to use for this?
