Citrus Drop Cookies

Wanted something sweet and was remembering the orange drop cookies my mom and grandmother used to make. This is not the same but satisfied my sweet tooth just the same. This is an approximate recipe. The cookies wanted to crumble a bit but were a nice texture.

Orange/Lemon Drop Cookies
Zest from one small orange
Zest from half a lemon
1/2 cup turbinato sugar
1/8 cup corn meal
1/8 cup buckwheat flour
3/4 cup white flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup juice from orange and lemon
1/4 cup grape seed oil
1 tbsp soy milk plus more as needed
Mix dry ingredients then stir in wet adding soy milk to get a moist batter. Drop on baking sheet and bake in 400 degree oven 8 to 10 minutes. Cool on wire rack. Made 14 cookies.

2 tsp lemon and orange juice
1 tsp soil milk
1 tsp grape seed oil
Powdered sugar
Mix in small glass until don't think can add more sugar. Heat 20 seconds in microwave and then stir more sugar into mix. Spread on cookies and it will set as it cools.
