Glazed Citrus Doodles

This is how you hit my sweet spot....Buttery cookies with citrus.


Fresh from the oven


Right to my plate


Glazed Citrus Doodles
Makes 36
Recipe from Everyday Food

Ingredients:
2-3/4 cups all-purpose flour (spooned and level)
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon fine salt
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
1-1/2 cups granulated sugar
2 tablespoons grated orange zest, plus 3 tablespoons juice (from 2 oranges)
4 teaspoons lemon zest, plus 3 tablespoons juice (from 2 lemons)
2 large eggs
2-1/2 cups confectioners sugar

Directions:
1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees F, with racks in upper and lower thirds.  Whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt.  In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat butter, granulated sugar, 1 tablespoon orange zest, and 2 teaspoons lemon zest on medium-high until pale and fluffy, 3 minutes, scraping down bowl as needed.  beat in eggs, one at a time.  Add flour mixture: beat to combine.

2.  Roll dough into 1-inch balls and place, 2 inches apart, on parchment-lined baking sheets.  Bake until edges are lightly golden, 12 to 15 minutes, rotating sheets halfway through.  Let cool on sheets on wire racks 5 minutes, then transfer cookies to racks and let cool completely.

3.  Whisk together 1 tablespoon orange zest, 2 teaspoons lemon zest, citrus juices, and confectioners sugar until smooth.  With a small spoon, spread glaze over each cookie.  Let set 1 hour.  (store in airtight containers, up to 3 days.)

Enjoy!
