When people ask me my favorite color, I say "glitter." Maybe that makes me a little airy-fairy, but so what? Glitter is fun! And it contains all colors, which is perfect for an indecisive Libra like me.
My love of glitter is what initially drew me to these Citrus Glitters from Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar:
The "glitter" is actually turbinado sugar, but it's the citrus flavor that truly shines in these soft sugar cookies.
A mix of orange, lime, and lemon zest went into the cookie batter, creating a delicate citrus flavor that was a perfect balance with the crunchy turbinado sugar.
I especially loved the texture of these cookies. Sugar cookies often end up way too crispy for my liking, but these remained soft and somewhat cakey (even four days later!). I brought a plateful to work to celebrate the Spring Equinox (my favorite holiday!), and they were quickly gobbled up by the co-workers.
