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

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.
