Citrus-Glazed Sugar Cookies Recipe

Makes: 2 dozen

Ingredients for cookies:
1 c. sugar
1/2 c. (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
1 egg
1 t. vanilla
2 c. flour
1/2 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
1 T. finely grated citrus zest
2 T. fresh citrus juice

Ingredients for citrus glaze:
2 c. confectioner’s sugar
2 T. finely grated citrus zest
1/3 c. fresh citrus juice

Instructions:
1. To make the cookies, beat the butter and sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer, till fluffy. Scrape down the sides and add the egg and vanilla — beat till blended. Add the flour, baking soda, and salt and beat till just combined. Add the zest and juice and beat again.

2. Chill dough for 30 minutes; pre-heat oven to 350 degrees and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

3. Form tablespoons of dough into balls — place on baking sheets about 1″ apart, then use a slightly damp hand to flatten into discs. Bake for 10-15 minutes, till golden brown at the edges. Cool cookies on pans for two minutes; transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

4. While cookies are cooling, make the glaze: Combine sugar and zest in a bowl. Add half the juice and whisk till smooth. If glaze is too thick to spread easily, add more juice — one tablespoon at a time — till the desired consistency is reached.

5. Spread glaze atop each cookie; allow to set for at least 2 hours.
