Citrus Bloghop: Lemon Lime Basil Cookies

Pin It!
Jan is the month to show some #citruslove and this month I feel very privileged to be hosting this together with some amazing bloggers from all around the globe! I love citrus fruits as their tangy flavour somehow perks me up! There's this lemon and lime shower gel I use that does wonders to wake me up in the morning!
When I first heard that citrus was the theme of the month, I immediately thought of this recipe I came across on Chasing Delicious. Fresh flavours of lemon, lime and basil all in a chewy refreshing cookie ...this is one that I'll be making more often to remind me of summer in these cold winter months. It'll also probably work quite well if basil is replaced with Thyme? Since lemon and thyme are always a good combi?
Adapted from Chasing Delicious

110g light olive oil
85g granulated sugar
65g soft brown sugar
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Zest from 1 lemon
Zest from 1 lime
2 tablespoons basil leaves, finely chopped
200g bread flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt

1. Preheat an oven to 190°C/375°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
2. Cream the sugar and olive oil together..
3. Add the egg, vanilla, zests and basil and mix in well.
4. Add the flour, baking soda and salt. Stir until combined and everything is evenly distributed.
5. Spoon the dough onto the lined baking sheets. This recipe will make 32 medium sized cookies.
6. Bake in a preheated oven for 8 to 12 minutes; 8 minutes will yield a very soft doughy cookie whereas 12 minutes will yield a crispier cookie.
7. Let cool for a couple minutes before removing from the baking sheet.
