Citrus-Olive Oil Shortbread Cookies


Citrus-Olive Oil Shortbread Cookies

1 cup light-flavor olive oil

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup packed light brown sugar

1/2 cup lemon juice

1/2 cup orange juice

Zest of 1 orange

32/3 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

Heat oven to 375 degrees. Combine olive oil, sugars, juices and zest. Beat with an electric mixer until thoroughly combined.

In a separate bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder and salt to mix. Add to liquid mixture a cup at a time, mixing between additions. The dough should be firm but not brick-hard. Add more orange juice 1/2 teaspoon at a time if needed to make a dough you can work.

Roll dough into balls and place on a baking sheet 11/2 inches apart. Bake for 11 to 13 minutes, until lightly browned. Cool slightly in pan, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Makes about 48 cookies.
