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.

Ingredients

  • 100 grams margarine (softened)
  • 75 grams sugar
  • 1 eggs (separated)

  • 1 lemon zest
  • 3 tablespoons orange juice

  3. Sift the flour into the mixture, stirring well.
  4. Add the grated orange, lemon, and lime peel, along with the orange juice, and mix until the mixture is creamy.
  5. Roll the dough out on a lightly floured surface.
  6. Cut out circles, or half-moons.

  8. Beat the egg white lightly, and brush the biscuits.
  9. Sprinkle with sugar.
  10. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes. Then transfer to a cooling rack.
