New Happenings

 The Seahawks are going to the Superbowl, and Valentine’s day is nearing, and I have yet to post about either topic. This is because I’ve been incredibly busy in life, and with PLD lately. Right now I’m working on launching new products for the shop, as well as planning and prepping for a few upcoming events happening in the next few months. The first is a sponsorship for a West Elm Event in Orlando hosted by Sarah the DIY and Lifestyle Blogger from Sarahhearts. The event happening February 6th is called Meet+Makewhere guests will enjoy a fun evening, creating Valentine’s themed artwork and crafts.

Here’s a look at the product my company will be supplying for each of the attendee’s swag bags.

Happy Friday everyone and happy Summer Solstice!

 To kick off the very first day of my favorite season, I’ve put together a collection of some of the summer worthy baking accessories available now in the Posh Etsy Boutique.

Posh Cookie Cutters - Etsy

Why cookie cutters you might ask? Well they’re perfect for creating memorable party treats and come in variety of shapes and styles so you can tie in your themes and concepts. My favorite treat to make with the cutters is the sugar cookie, which has become a signature posh goodie that I serve at all my celebrations.

Ideal for weddings, bridal showers, bachelorette parties, baby showers, themed parties and more. All items in the shop are affordable ranging between $2 and $7.00. If you’re throwing a celebration and are in need of cute baking accessories or party favors, make sure you head over to the shop and have a browse. Also be sure to stay tuned. I’ll be adding more inventory in the coming days and weeks.

Now I’m off to prep for an afternoon with some of my favorite girls. We’re celebrating the beginning of summer with appetizers, cocktails of course sweets too! I’ll have more to share soon.

Spiked Margarita Sugar Cookies

It’s Wednesday today and that means we have just a few days before the weekend. I’m looking forward to it because Cinco de Mayo is coming up this Sunday! How will you be celebrating? There’s supposed to be 70 degree temps this week in the NW, so we’ll take full advantage of the holiday and the sunshine, with an afternoon outdoors and a margarita or two. Margaritas just happen to be one of my favorite summer drinks and with the upcoming arrival of the holiday, I thought of a fun way to transform this refreshing beverage into treat form. Oh yes, I’ve taken my favorite sugar cookie recipe and jazzed it up with some fresh lime juice, sea salt and a dash of Patron. I also made the cookies using a dairy free butter, which was not the greatest idea because I ended up eating more of these cookies than I probably should have. They really are that good!

If you plan to attend a Cinco de Mayo celebration, or host one this Sunday, make these cookies to share with your guests or fellow party goers. They are festive, fun and will be enjoyed by all!

Margarita Sugar Cookies

The addition of the lime zest, sea salt, fresh squeezed lime juice give these cookies a bright and refreshing taste, similar to that of a margarita. These cookies are strictly for adults, although you could very easily make them virgin by omitting the tequila. 

Ingredients/Supplies

3/4 cups vegan butter (or regular butter if you choose)

3/4 cups granulated sugar

3/4 teaspoon sea salt

2 teaspoons fresh squeezed lime juice

zest from 1 large lime

1 large egg whipped

2 cups all purpose flour

Instructions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Line a baking sheet in parchment paper or silicone liner.

Blend together butter and sugar in a stand mixer until light and fluffy.

Crack egg in a separate bowl and whip.

Pour fresh squeezed lime juice into whipped egg.

Pour egg mixture and zest from one lime into butter and sugar mixture.

Mix on medium until fully incorporated.

Sift together flour and sea salt and pour into egg and butter mixture in thirds.

Continue to mix until dough forms.

Remove dough from mixer and chill in fridge for 30 minutes.

Once dough has chilled, remove from fridge.

Flour a clean surface and rolling pin.

Roll dough until about 1/2 inch thick.

Cut dough into shapes using a festive cookie cutter.

Bake in the oven, making sure not to overcook. They only need 5-7 minutes.

Place on a rack to cool.

Decorate with Spiked Margarita Icing and festive sprinkles.

Spiked Margarita Icing

The cookie icing/glaze is tart and refreshing, with lime and tequila notes that are reminiscent of your favorite margarita. 

Ingredients/Supplies

1 Cup Powder Sugar

2 teaspoons light corn syrup

2+ teaspoons fresh squeezed lime juice

1-2+ teaspoons of good quality tequila

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

Green food coloring

Icing container or ziplock

Festive sprinkles

Instructions

If you plan to outline and then flood your cookies with icing you’ll want to follow these directions.

Mix powdered sugar, corn syrup, lime juice and tequila in a bowl and stir together until fully incorporated.

You’ll want the consistency to be about as thick as toothpaste for the outlining of your cookies.

If it’s not thick enough, add a little more powdered sugar or if it’s too thick you can add more lime juice or tequila to taste.

Once desired consistency is reached, spoon your icing into the Icing container or ziplock and pipe and outline your cookies.

Allow to dry.

Next you’ll want to thin your icing out by adding more liquid. Add your choice of tequila, or lime juice until it’s the consistency of a glaze.

Divide your cookie glaze into two separate bowls. You’ll want to leave half the icing white, and add a drop of green food coloring to the other.

Spoon your white icing glaze into the corner of a ziplock bag. Snip the corner and flood the stems of your margarita glass cookies in white glaze. Evenly distribute the glaze to all desired areas of the cookie by spreading with a butter knife or icing spatula.

Repeat these steps with the green icing for the upper portion of the margarita glass until cookie is fully covered in icing.

For a decorative touch you can add white icing for a rim, rock sugar or sprinkles to look like salt, or any other design of your choice.

The icing glaze dries rather quick. Set aside for 30 minutes and they’re ready to enjoy!

See, now you can drink your margaritas and eat them too!
