  • 3

    cups all-purpose flour

  • ½

    tsp salt

  • 2

    sticks unsalted butter

  • 1

    cup granulated sugar

  • 1

    large egg

  • 1

    tsp finely grated citrus zest

  • 1

    TBS fresh citrus juice


1) 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. Beat in egg and citrus zest and juice. Reduce speed to low. Add flour mixture, and beat until combined. 2) Knead dough briefly to soften. Fill a cookie press with dough (if making swirl cookies, fill with both kinds of dough), and fit with disk to make shapes. Squeeze cookies directly onto a baking sheet. Sprinkle with sanding sugar, if using. Bake at 350 degrees until firm, 12 to 14 minutes. 3) Let cool completely before dipping in the vanilla or citrus glazes, or melted white chocolate. Apply small or crushed candies, if using, while glaze is wet. Let vanilla- or citrus-glazed cookies set on a wire rack. Let white-chocolate-glazed cookies set in refrigerator, and keep chilled until ready to serve.
