I discovered this recipe while flipping through EveryDay Food Magazine and knew I had to make a batch. I made some minor changes to the cookie recipe and mixed my own variation of a citrus glaze. To give the cookies and glaze more zazaZing, I added extra citrus juice and zest.
(adapted from EveryDay Food)Cookie Ingredients:2 3/4 cups all purpose Flour
1 Tb Baking Powder
1/4 tsp Salt
1 1/2 cups Sugar
1 Tb fresh Lemon Juice
1 Tb fresh Orange Juice
Zest of 1 Lemon & 1 Orange
2 sticks Unsalted Butter (room temperature)
- 1 Tb Baking Powder
- 1/4 tsp Salt
- 1 1/2 cups Sugar
- 2 Eggs
- 1 Tb fresh Lemon Juice
- 1 Tb fresh Orange Juice
- Zest of 1 Lemon & 1 Orange
- 2 sticks Unsalted Butter (room temperature)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. With a fork, mix flour, baking powder and salt then set aside. Using a hand mixer, combine butter, sugar, orange/lemon zest and orange/lemon juice. Mix until creamy and smooth. Incorporate the eggs one at a time. Add the dry flour mixture and mix until fully incorporated.Roll dough into one inch balls and place two inches apart on a greased cookie sheet. Bake for twelve to fifteen minutes then remove and cool for five minutes. Transfer to wire racks for cooling and glazing.
Zesty Glaze:Whisk together the juice of half of an orange, juice from one and a half lemons, the zest of one lemon & one orange and approximately two and a half cups of powdered sugar. This glaze will be thin and will lightly coat the cookies. If you prefer a thicker glaze just add more powdered sugar until the desired consistency.
