As many people know, October takes on a pink hue as it is recognized as National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. So this October, the Jekyll Island Club Hotel is mixing and baking up some delicious pink treats!
Today we’re serving up two different recipes: our Jekyll Island Club Hotel original TaTa-Tini and our pink iced sugar cookies!
Like all martinis, simply add all ingredients into a cocktail drink shaker with some ice and SHAKE! Pour into a martini glass and garnish with a lemon twist before serving.
*You can find the TaTa-Tini at the JICH Lobby Bar and Pub.
Pink Iced Sugar Cookies:
Preheat oven to 325°. Line one or two baking sheets with parchment.
In mixer with paddle attachment, cream margarine and sugar until fluffy. Add eggs one at a time along with vanilla, scraping the sides of the bowl after each addition. Add dry ingredients and mix until well combined and smooth, scraping the sides of the bowl as necessary.
Scoop dough onto prepared baking sheet with a 2-ounce scoop or quarter cup measure, 2-3 inches apart. Press each to flatten slightly. Bake until golden brown along the edges, about 15-18 minutes.
Remove from oven and allow to cool. Then, move on to the icing!
In mixer with paddle attachment, combine egg white, cream of tartar, and powdered sugar until completely mixed. Increase speed to high and beat for 5-7 minutes, until fluffy. Tint icing as desired.
Add to a piping bag, or simply spread onto the cookies.
*You can find these cookies at both of the JICH Club Cafes.
