This is a recipe for Absinthe Cookies that I came up with a few years ago. They've turned into a seasonal favorite among my relatives and I was even successful in getting LaFee to post the recipe on their website.

The recipe is thus:

Ingredients
4 & ½ Cups Flour
1 tsp. Baking Soda
1 tsp. Cream of Tartar
1 tsp. Salt
1 Cup Butter
1 Cup Confectioner’s Sugar
1 Cup Granulated Sugar
2 Eggs
1 Cup Salad Oil
1 tsp. Anise candy flavoring oil
¼ tsp. Peppermint candy flavoring oil
2 Tbsp. Fresh Lemon Juice
2 Tbsp. Absinthe

Icing
4 Cups Confectioner’s Sugar
½ Cup Butter
6 Tbsp. Absinthe
6 drops Anise Oil
1 Tbsp. Lemon Juice
1 Tbsp Water
1 to 2 Drops Green food coloring.

Method
Cream butter and sugar in large mixing bowl. Beat in eggs until fluffy and add oil, absinthe, lemon juice and candy flavoring oils, blend well.

Combine flour, baking soda, cream of tartar and salt. Add dry ingredients to creamy mixture. Wrap and chill for several hours.

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (163 degrees C). Roll dough into small balls and flatten on cookie sheet with the bottom of a drinking glass dipped in granulated sugar to prevent sticking. Bake 8-10 minutes. Serve as-is or Frost with Absinthe icing when cool.

I usually make bourbon balls but I think I'll do some absinthe balls as well this year.

Yeah, but you have to arrange them just right on the floor first.

I tried this recipe out once. The cookies were fantastic, but the icing was too alcoholic for my tastes. Go easy on the absinthe in the frosting, you can always add more later

It does seem like a lot, compared to the amount used for the cookies. Thanks for pointing that out.

This sounds great as well. We made some absinthe truffles (with the help of my fiancee's father who is a skilled chocolatier) for a holiday party gift last december, and they went over very well ( we have people begging us for them as wedding favors actually). It's a little tricky though as the higher alcohol content of the absinthe makes it tricky to dilute enough to maintain flavor while still allowing the chocolate to set up.
