Description

These citrus cookies are super simple and come together with just 8 ingredients. The combination of orange zest, lime zest, and lemon zest gives these delicate cookies a ton of bold flavor. These cookies are great to serve with tea for an afternoon snack, or try them with a little bit of ice cream for a simple and delicious dessert. If you want them to have a more refined look, dust the cookies with a bit of powdered sugar after baking.
