Though Absinthe is known more for its high alcohol level then its ability to be a delicious treat, this Absinthe recipe gives a little bite to everyday desserts.
The green-colored liquor, also known to cause hallucinations, may be banned in some countries, but the people of A Fine Kettle of Ish seemed to get their hands on a bottle to make a delectable glaze for cookies. The ingredient that gives the cocktail the very distinct black licorice taste is a mixture of anise, fennel and wormwood. This cookie is intended to be a much less sweet version of the usual treats you may be used to, but that does not mean it will be any less delicious.
However, just like black licorice, this Absinthe recipe is not for everyone as only the true lovers of the drink and those with mature pallets would appreciate this cookie.
