I originally shared this recipe over at Say Not Sweet Anne last year, but I have been thinking of them constantly and decided I absolutely needed to share them with all of you.

They are based on this recipe from Whipperberry. I decided that instead of using lemon, I would try them with oranges, but when I went to the store, the oranges looked all sorts of manky, so I decided to give them a go with clementines.

Sweet and a little citrusy with the lightest little glaze on the outside from the powdered sugar.

Even better, they’re super easy to make: just mix, roll and bake. No rolling, refrigerating the dough or icing.
