zest of one tangerine*
2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter, at room temperature
1/3 cup tangerine juice**
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 375. In a large bowl, cream together butter, zest and sugar. Add egg and juice, mix thoroughly. Add flour, baking powder and salt, mix until a thick dough forms and all of the ingredients are well incorporated. Drop tablespoonfuls on baking sheet and bake 10 minutes or until “set”. The cookies will puff up quite a bit but they should no longer be shiny on the top and the bottoms should be lightly browned when you take them out of the oven. Cool on a wire rack, then eat!
** no pulp!
Oo, I’ve been wanting to try another citrus sweetie since my tart – seeing these makes the desire stronger! I’ve no tangerines, but there are some rather num oranges in my pantry…
Oh, yum. I bet these would be wonderful with a citrusy tea.
An interesting recipe Rachel! I got the Zine in the mail today and I really enjoyed reading it…thanks!
Rachel, are these a soft cookie (I've been looking for a soft sitrus (lemon, orange or tangerine) cookie like the ones the cooks at my old gradeschool used to make (in the 50's/60's)? Cameronbyrne@bresnan.net
