There are two very special foods in the life of a food blogger that really pack a punch…Blood Oranges and Meyer Lemons! I have been wanting to bake with these delicious fruits for quite awhile. After remembering how delicious the Lemon Drop Cookies were that I baked a couple years ago, I decided to use that recipe but make the curd with Blood Oranges and Meyer Lemons!
And do I have a treat for you! These Citrus Drop Cookies are A-mazing!! If you don’t bake anything else this week, hurry to the store and grab the ingredients for these!
The cookie base is a very easy mixture, handles really well and bakes up beautifully! Each time I have used this recipe, I’m reminded of how great it is and wonder why I don’t use it more often.
And the citrus speaks for itself…
I thought you could only find the best citrus in the warm states, like California or Florida. Well, little did I know I there are many Citrus varieties available at Walmart.
Let’s get baking…
The Citrus Curd will take a little time to cook on the stove and you will also need to allow time for it to chill, but it’s definitely worth the wait! The buttery, flaky cookie has only 6 ingredients…butter, sugar, egg yolk, vanilla, flour and salt. And the Citrus Curd has only 5 ingredients…Blood Oranges, Meyer Lemons, butter, eggs and sugar.
During the month of January, Walmart is hosting a Citrus Celebration. Look for these Citrus varieties at your local stores…
