Happy Valentine's Day!

I hope you're getting to snuggle up with someone you love today. And if not, maybe bake some of these delicious citrus sugar cookies!?


Citrus Sugar Cookies
3 cups all-purpose flour (I used unbleached organic)
1/2 tsp salt
2 sticks butter (organic)
1 cup sugar (Florida organic cane sugar)
1 large egg (4 grain cage-free)
1 tsp fresh finely grated orange zest
1 tbsp lemon juice

Whisk together flour and salt in a large bowl. Beat butter and granulated sugar with a mixer on medium-high speed until pale and fluffy (the cane sugar will take longer and not be quite as fluffy). Beat in egg, orange zest, and lemon juice. Reduce speed to low. Add flour mixture, and beat until combined. (Dough can be refrigerated overnight or frozen for up to 1 month.)
Roll dough into 1-inch balls. Arrange on parchment-lined baking sheets, spacing each 1 inch apart. Refrigerate until firm, about 30 minutes. Bake at 350 degrees until firm, 14-16 minutes. Let cool completely.

Thanks, Martha! (Martha Stewart Living, December 2010, with my own recipe tweaks.)
