Not-so-fun fact: Avocados are named after the Aztec word for testicle. Actual fun fact: In some parts of the world, avocados are called butterfruit. The good thing about this name is that it a) has nothing to do with testicles and b) provides a sneaky way to name your cookies without people realizing that there’s avocado in them until after they’ve eaten one and fallen in love with it. Everyone already knows that avocado and lime are delicious together and using avocado in the icing gives it a natural green tint. And if you’re wondering: yes, the cookies are also slightly green on the first day. After a night in a tupperware container, the avocado oxidizes and the cookies fade to a normal brown color. The icing – I’m happy to report – stays nice and green. The acid in the lime juice prevents avocados from oxidizing as quickly.
