I love to bake. Baking is my stress “thing” — if things ever get crazy, you can usually find me in the kitchen covered in flour.

I will bake anything, but cookies are my favorite. I love trying new and different cookie recipes too, so when I saw these Lemon Crinkle Cookies from Whipperberry, I knew I had to make them. They sounded so amazing — and let me tell you, they were.

I’ve made them several times now, so I started thinking about how I could switch them up a little.

So I decided to try them with oranges. But then I went to the grocery store and the oranges looked kinda gross, so I got a bag of clementines and decided to try those.

I love the little zing of citrus flavor and how the powdered sugar gives them a sweet little glaze on the outside. Dee-licious.

Best of all, they’re super easy to make — no chilling the dough, no rolling them out, no frosting them… just mix, roll in powdered sugar, and bake.

Ingredients

1/2 c. butter, softened
1 c. granulated sugar
1 tsp. vanilla bean paste {or vanilla extract}
1 egg
Juice from 1 clementine
zest from 2 clementines
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1/8 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 c. all-purpose flour {may need to add a bit more, depending on how juicy your clementine is}
1/2 c. powdered sugar

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add in vanilla, egg, clementine juice and clementine zest and mix thoroughly.
3. In a separate bowl, mix together salt, baking powder, baking soda and flour. Gradually add to wet ingredients until just combined.

Hi, I’m Jenn. I live in central Pennsylvania with my husband and three boys. Yeah. That’s a lot of testosterone in one house. I love decorating, DIYing, crafting, baking, and cooking, and I’m constantly scouring everything I see for inspiration. My ideas can come from anywhere: Pinterest, books, magazines, Pinterest, catalogs, stores, TV shows, websites, other blogs, Pinterest, other people’s homes, nature {did I happen to mention Pinterest?}. You name it, and I’ve gotten an idea from it. {Literally. I selected the color scheme for our family room from a pocket pack of tissues. Totally not making that up.} I hope to teach others that, if you really pay attention to the world around you, you can get inspiration from anything!
