Moscow Mule Cookies Recipe
Preheat the oven to 350° and line 3 baking sheets with parchment paper. Using a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment (or a large mixing bowl with a hand mixer), combine the butter, granulated sugar, egg, vanilla, vodka and ginger beer and beat on medium speed until creamy and free of lumps.
In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and ginger. Mix well. Gradually add to the butter mixture and beat on medium speed until just combined.
Using a medium cookie scoop, drop the dough by 1 1/2 tablespoons, 2 inches apart onto the prepared baking sheets. Bake in the preheated oven for 9 to 11 minutes, or until golden brown around the bottom edges with no uncooked dough in the centers. Remove from the oven, transfer the cookies to a wire rack and let cool.
Make the glaze: Using a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment (or a large mixing bowl with a hand mixer), combine the confectioners' sugar and lime zest. Add the lime juice 1 tablespoon at a time until the desired consistency is reached. Beat on medium speed until free of lumps.
Drizzle the glaze over the cookies.
