Citrus Glitters

Citrus Glitters

This is from Vegan Cookies Take Over Your Cookie Jar by Moskowitz and Romero.

Preheat oven to 350.  Mix in mixer or with hand mixer 90 seconds:

  • 1/2 c shortening
  • 3/4 c sugar

Add and blend:

  • 1/4 c veggie milk
  • 2 T grated citrus peel (lemon, lime, and/or orange)
  • 1 t vanilla extract

Add and blend:

  • 1-3/4 c flour (I used about half whole wheat pastry flour)
  • 2 T fine cornmeal (they suggested food-processing coarse cornmeal)
  • 1 T cornstarch
  • 1/2 t baking powder
  • 1/4 t salt

Put on a small plate:

  • 3 T sugar (coarse sugar is good)

Roll heaping Tablespoons of dough into balls (or use a cookie scooper like I did), then press them into the sugar on one side.  Place them sugar-side-up on a cookie sheet (I didn’t need to grease my seasoned pans but they suggested parchment paper).  They didn’t spread much.

Bake 10-12 minutes, until lightly golden at edges.  Let cool 2 minutes on pan and then on racks.  I made 28 cookies.
