Grapefruit Tea Cookies Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)
Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2011
5 Stars from me! These are wonderful. My brother was thinking about cutting down his grapefruit tree, but these cookies will change his mind. I upped the flour to 2 cups and they turned out perfect. By the way, I also graduated high school in 1975, and lemon tea cookies were big then, but these are great. Thanks.

These were delicious! I had to bake them at 325 because my oven runs hotter than normal, but great recipe!

The glaze makes these taste great! I made them with lemon juice instead, and they tasted like lemonade sponges. But they are a soft, cakey cookie, not really my 'cup-o-tea'

Really good and easy, cake-like cookies. I used a red grapefruit and doubled the zest and added a touch more juice because it's so mild. They came out perfectly. Delicious! I'm going to try them with Lemon for Mother's Day. :0)

I made these cookies for a Downton Abbey tea party, and my friends went crazy for them! I added more grapefruit zest than called for.

Wanted to try something with grapefruit but this recipe didn't work out. I used 2 cups of flour but the dough was still too soft for cookies so I added some chopped nuts and thought I would try making bars. The pan was too small so it turned out like cake. Right out of the oven it was okay (the glaze I threw out after mixing it and tasting it)but the next morning the "cake" was heavy and dried out.
