Sunny Citrus Slice-and-Bake Cookies
Add some fun and color to your cookie tray! These slice-and-bake cookies have the flavor and appearance of citrus wedges.
Baking with bright colors and flavors is a common occurrence in my kitchen. I especially love using citrus because it reminds me of sunny weather and always lifts my spirits. It’s my favorite kind of aromatherapy.
These cookies are charming in appearance, and they’re loaded with aromatic citrus zests. A coating of sanding sugar on the exterior gives them a sweet sparkle, and they’d be right at home at a fancy tea party.
Even though there are a few steps to making these cookies, they come together rather quickly. They can be made ahead and stored in the refrigerator, then sliced and baked at your convenience.
To get started, mix up your cookie dough and make sure it’s not sticky. If there’s any stickiness, add flour a tablespoon at a time and mix well until consistency is achieved. You should be able to pick the dough up with your fingers without it sticking or smearing on your hands.
