Crisp Citrus Cookies


This Crisp Citrus Cookie is really easy to make by using a food processor.  This is requested by Evy and also I wanted to test out the new cookie cutters that I bought from Amazon.  I think I scored this cookie cutters pretty cheap at Amazon, each pair cost less than $2 each, but I can't remember the specific amount.  Since it was shipped from China, it took awhile to arrive but I can't complain since the shipping was free. If you are in the US and want this kind of cookie cutters, you can buy it via Amazon.  They have a lot of different characters to choose from as well.


Crisp Citrusy Cookies

Ingredients:

(A)
1 1/2 cup self-raising flour
1/2 cup powdered sugar
Zest of 2 oranges, minced it

(B)
1 stick or 1/2 cup of butter, soften
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1 tsp. pure lemon extract
1 Tbsp. almond milk (or milk)

Method:

1.  In a food processor, add in (A).  Pulse to mix.

2.  Add in (B), pulse until a dough is formed.

3.  Flour your work surface, drop in the dough and give it a few kneads.  Roll with a roller until about 1cm thickness and cut with your favorite cookie cutter.  Place on parchment lined baking sheet.  Finish the rest.

4.  Preheat oven to 350'F.  Bake for 18-20 minutes.  Cool on wire rack completely before transferring it to an air-tight container.
