Weekend Cooking...A Special Cookie

For this week's Weekend Cooking, hosted by Beth Fish Reads, I have a recipe. I enjoy baking from time to time and especially this time of year. So here is one that I saw on the internet and that piqued my interest. I must admit I have not made it yet.

I am waiting for when I have a few days off from work. You may see why when you read it...

Tequila Cookies, Wheeeeee!

  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup or brown sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup nuts
  • 2 cups of dried fruit
  • 1 bottle Jose Cuervo Tequila
Sample the Cuervo to check quality.

Take a large bowl, check the Cuervo again, to be sure it is of the highest quality, pour one level cup and drink.

Turn on the electric mixer. Beat one cup of butter in a large fluffy bowl.

Add one peastoon of sugar. Beat again. At this point it’s best to make sure the Cuervo is still ok, try another cup just in case.

Turn off the mixerer thingy.

Break 2 leggs and add to the bowl and chuck in the cup of dried fruit. Pick the frigging fruit off the floor.

Mix on the turner. If the fried druit gets stuck in the beaters just pry it loose with a drewscriver.

Sample the Cuervo to check for tonsisticity.

Next, sift two cups of salt, or something. Who geeves a sheet.

Check the Jose Cuervo.

Now shift the lemon juice and strain your nuts.

Add one table.

Add a spoon of sugar, or somefink. Whatever you can find.

Greash the oven.

Turn the cake tin 360 degrees and try not to fall over.

Don’t forget to beat off the turner.

Finally, throw the bowl through the window, finish the Cose Juervo and make sure to put the stove in the wishdasher.

Ok, I thought you stressed out bakers might need a

My thanks to The Anchoress for this amusement.



  1. LOL! This ties in nicely with the Weekend Cooking post I have planned for next week!

  2. LOL! Sound like a great way to start off a holiday party!

  3. I love this! I would certainly want to know I had high quality tequila before I made the cookies.

  4. High quality ingredients are of extreme importance. I offer myself as a tester.

  5. This is too, too funny! Next time you make this cookie, give me a call. You need more help in the kitchen testing the key ingredient.

  6. I have a recipe book called Tequila-I have yet to crack the cover. But now you make me want to start baking.

  7. a very interesting recipe--I like to make ginger bread men for Christmas.

  8. Yummy - fancy send someover to me in Wales??? lol ;0)

  11. I don't do any baking...but I could certainly get behind this! :) Fun post!

  12. Honestly, I usually skip these types of posts but when I was scrolling by, it seemed like it wasn't your ordinary recipe so I stopped and read it and I'm glad I did! That was so funny! Thanks!
