Add egg, lime peel, extract and sage; beat until well blended. Gradually beat in flour mixture until well mixed. Divide dough in half. Form each half into a log about 1 1/2 inches in diameter and 9 inches long. Wrap in wax paper.

2. Refrigerate 1 hour or until firm.

3. Preheat oven 350°F. Mix sanding sugar and kosher salt. Roll each cold dough log in mixture to coat evenly. Cut dough into 1/4-inch thick slices. Place on ungreased baking sheets.

4. Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until lightly browned around edges. Cool on baking sheets 1 minute. Remove to wire racks; cool completely. Drizzle Glaze over cooled cookies. Let stand until glaze is set.Tequila Glaze: 1 cup confectioners’ sugar, and 1 tablespoon each water and tequila in small bowl until smooth. (Or omit tequila and use 2 tablespoons water.)

Test Kitchen Tip: Sanding sugar, also know as decorator’s sugar, is a large crystal sugar that will not dissolve when baked. It can be found in the baking aisle of some groceries, housewares and craft stores, and online specialty stores.
