Are you a chewy person or a crispy person, when it comes to cookies? I usually prefer chewy, but sometimes I want crispy. Lately, all I want is crispy. Sometimes you just wanna grab a light and crispy cookie and this is that cookie. OMG! These are too good. Buttery, crispy, easy to eat. Way too easy to eat. I highly recommend that you make a double batch.
I’ve made these using just orange zest and I loved them. But when I tried them using lemon, orange and lime……ohhhhhh yes please! I must warn you though. They are addicting! You won’t be able to eat just one or two.
Orange, Lemon, Lime Crispy Cookies
1 stick of butter (1/2 cup) softened
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. orange zest
1/2 tsp. lemon zest
1/2 tsp. lime zest
1 1/2 tsp lemon or orange juice
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder (I use just under 1/4 tsp)
1/4 cup sugar for rolling
Heat oven to 350. Beat the butter and sugar together until very fluffy. Add everything but the dry ingredients and mix until well combined. Add the dry ingredients and mix at low speed just until combined.
Form into little balls…..approx. 1 Tablespoon of dough. Roll the balls in the sugar and place them onto ungreased or parchment lined cookie sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the edges are light brown. Allow to cool completely. They may still appear soft in the middle, but don’t worry. They will crisp up once cooled.
The perfect little crispy cookie. Happy Crunching
