Cookies
1
pouch Betty Crocker® shortbread cookie mix
1
cup butter, softened (not melted)
1 1/2
teaspoons grated lime peel
1 1/2
teaspoons grated orange peel
Citrus Glaze
2
cups powdered sugar
2
to 4 tablespoons lime or orange juice
  1. Heat oven to 400°F (or 375°F for dark or nonstick cookie sheet). Line large cookie sheet with cooking parchment paper. In medium bowl, stir cookie ingredients until soft dough forms.
  2. On lightly floured surface, roll dough into 12x10-inch rectangle, about 1/4 inch thick. Cut into 30 (2-inch) squares, then cut each square diagonally in half into 2 triangles. Place 1/2 inch apart on parchment-lined cookie sheet.
  3. Bake 6 to 8 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Cool 2 minutes; remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 15 minutes.
  4. In medium bowl, mix Citrus Glaze ingredients with spoon until smooth and thin enough to drizzle. Drizzle glaze over cookies. Allow glaze to set completely, about 20 minutes; store cookies in airtight container.
