Grapefruit Tea Cookies

I reminded myself again that I didn't like grapefruit by blending one into a protein shake after last week's boot camp. I don't like to be wasteful, so I drank a good 6/8 (yes 6/8) of it before I couldn't drink any more. For the remaining six juicy grapefruits I have sitting on my table? Some of them have turned into this. I am SO happy with how they turned out, I definitely recommend it. You can also substitute lemon or orange or tangerine and these will turn out fabulously.


Grapefruit Tea Cookies

Ingredients:
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons grapefruit juice
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup white sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon grated grapefruit zest
Glaze:
3/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup grapefruit juice
Directions:
1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Whisk flour, baking soda, and salt together in a bowl.
2.Mix 1 1/2 teaspoon of grapefruit juice into milk in a small bowl, and set aside for about 5 minutes. In a large bowl, mash the butter with 3/4 cup of sugar until creamy and well combined, and beat in the egg and grapefruit zest until thoroughly combined. Beat the milk into the butter mixture about 2 tablespoons at a time, alternating with the flour mixture, until the dough is smooth. Drop by teaspoons onto ungreased baking sheets, about 2 inches apart.
3.Bake in the preheated oven until set and very lightly browned, 12 to 14 minutes. Cool on racks.
4.Make glaze by mixing 3/4 cup sugar with 1/4 cup grapefruit juice. Brush glaze onto cooled cookies; let stand until glaze is set
