Orange or Lime Poppy Seed Cookies

350 degree oven
Here are 2 versions. Choose either Orange or Lime and use the Zest and Juice of either to make these cookies. I happen to like Lime!

1 1/2 C Flour
1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 TBS Poppy Seeds
8 TBS Butter, room temperature
2/3 C Sugar
2 TBS Orange or Lime Zest
1 Egg

1/2 C Powdered Sugar/Confectioner's Sugar
2 TBS freshly squeezed Orange or Lime Juice

Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper
In a Small bowl whisk:
Baking Powder
Poppy Seeds
Set Aside

In an Electric Mixer with the paddle attachment:
Cream together the Butter and Sugar on medium-high until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes
Mix in Egg and Zest until well blended
Mix in dry ingredients on low until incorporated

Using a Cookie Scoop, drop dough onto the baking sheets about 2" apart

Bake for 9 - 11 minutes / do not let the tops brown

Cool 2 minutes and then transfer to a cooling rack and cool completely before glazing

Whisk Sugar & 2 TBS of Juice
Add more Sugar if necessary to have a good consistency to drizzle over the cookies

Allow Glaze to cool completely before serving

Peace in the Kitchen!
