Coconut Grapefruit Sugar Cookies are zesty, bright, and oh so good. Soft, thick and chewy sugar cookies with a little grapefruit citrus zing!
Do you have a favorite type of Citrus? If you hadn’t guessed, mine far and away is grapefruit. I mean, I love them all, of course, they all have their place, but Grapefruit seems like it’s perfect for everything.
My favorite chapstick is Grapefruit flavored, as well as my body scrub, and lotions. My favorite sorbet is grapefruit! Greyhounds are in my top three favorite cocktails, and there isn’t much that you can’t do with my favorite citrus.
The smell is intoxicating and refreshing and just screams Summer and Sun to me! Plus the fruit all by itself is just so darn yummy! It is one of our favorites to always have in the fruit bowl!
My mom used to always sprinkle sugar on top, and I know that a lot of people do that. But when you have realllly sweet grapefruit, there is no need, so I try not to, and even my two year old inhales them! I can’t seem to scoop it out fast enough!
It only made sense to me to add a Grapefruit Cookie to my collection, and boy this one did not disappoint!
There is freshly squeezed grapefruit juice and zest made up into the cookie, then the dough is rolled in grapefruit infused sugar, if you will. I just massed a couple tablespoons of fresh grapefruit zest into some granulated sugar..it smells fantastic by the way.
These cookies are thick, soft, and chewy. The grapefruit flavor is there, but not over powering by any means. These are not overly sweet sugar cookies, but more refreshing and airy.
We loved this cookie and I think you will too!
