Grown-Up Cookies
It's useful to have an adult cookie in your repertoire, something you can savor with a cocktail, or bring to a friend's house for, say, an Oscar-viewing party. These lime-and-ginger treats are reminiscent of a Moscow Mule, and yes, they include splashes of vodka and ginger beer. They're zingy and fresh, whether you nibble them together with their namesake cocktail, or a cup of lemon tea. And the recipe, from Megan Porta's Cookie Remix, makes nearly 40 cookies.
