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

"Great cookies! Really easy. Delicious buttery flavor, even though there are only 4 TBS butter. Definitely a step up from your regular sugar cookie. "

A wonderful yet easy recipe, especially if you have a micro plane to zest the peel. Everyone in my family loves them. They stay soft on the inside for several days and freeze beautifully. I rolled the dough balls in course, raw sugar before baking which adds a great touch.


My friend and I have been baking Christmas cookies for 32 years. So we know cookies!! These lemon/orange cookies are perhaps the best lemon cookie we have made. Reminscient of lemon bars but not messy, they are crisp on the outside with soft lemon/orange inside. We just finished baking and 4 are gone already!

Made these with Splenda and

Made these with Splenda and another batch with sugar. Neither one came together after refrigeration. I was able to mix them enough to make a ball. The Splenda batch never spread out and was try and cakey (I even added a little milk before shaping them) The sugar batch I cooked about 4 minutes longer and they did a little better. Good flavor but dry. Anonymous
