Harvesting citrus + baking cookies.

The citrus trees in our yard are bursting with fruit. Grapefruits and tangelos are dropping off the branches and littering the lawn like glistening, vivid spheres.

Today I decided it was high time to use some of them up in my baking. There is something so lovely about picking citrus from your own trees and then turning them into a fragrant baked good that fills the house with a sugary citrus scent.

These are my favourite cookies – they are soft and cake-like, kind of like a cross between an orange sponge cake and a muffin top. I normally make them with orange but they can be made with any citrus fruits.
