These citrus-flavored sugar cookies are a lovely addition to any holiday cookie platter.

3 dozen cookies | Active Time: 20 minutes | Total Time: 1 1/4 hours (including 30 minutes chilling time)

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Whisk flour, baking soda, cream of tartar and salt in a small bowl.
  2. Beat sugar and butter in a mixing bowl with an electric mixer on medium-high speed until light and fluffy. Add egg, honey, lemon zest, orange zest and lemon extract, and beat until blended. Gradually add the flour mixture, beating on low speed just until combined. Cover and refrigerate the dough for 30 minutes or overnight.
  3. Preheat oven to 375°F. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper or nonstick baking mats.
  4. Roll the dough into 36 balls (about 2 level teaspoons each) with your hands. Place 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheets.
  5. Bake, one batch at a time, until puffed and beginning to crack, 6 to 8 minutes. Cool on the baking sheet for 2 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
